Overview

Calvin is a specialist in regional development, sustainability and energy economics. He holds a PhD in the Economics of Tourism and Major Events and is a specialist in economic and environmental accounting and modelling. He has been involved in the development of a number of measurement tools for sustainability. 

Calvin is a Visiting Fellow at the World Tourism Organisation, and a member of UN statistical Task Teams as well as a Director at Natural Resources Wales. He has written and spoken extensively on sustainable development, regional policy and energy transformations. Possibly too extensively.

Calvin is a failed novelist, rock star and screen writer, but served a successful and rewarding (if short) period in Nelson Mandela's security detail. He is a winner of both the Moss Madden Medal in regional science, and the People's Choice Award at the 1996 Milwaukee International Snow Sculpting Championships, representing Cymru.
