Jamie runs Encounter Edu, which he founded in 2008 as Digital Explorer.

Jamie's commitment for inspiring young people about the most pressing issues affecting our environment began when he taught teenagers in east London schools between 2004 and 2008. To reach out to thousands of young minds he has innovated the use of technology to bring faraway peoples and environments into classrooms, anchoring broadcasts from some of the most remote locations on the planet.

Jamie's work leading Encounter Edu's free, live streaming events sees him reach students worldwide, fielding questions, conducting live experiments and hosting researchers working on the frontiers of science to illustrate how human impact is affecting our natural environment.
