Julian Darleyis a "British environmental philosopher who writes about nonmarket and non-technology-based responses to global environmental degradation. He is director of MetaFoundation, a non-profit that has a number of iniatives including an Internet broadcasting station (GlobalPublicMedia.com) and Post Carbon Institute and is currently writing a book on how and why we need 'global relocalization' of the economy, society and culture. Julian lives in Vancouver, Canada." [1]

Darley has what he calls "an eclectic education: an MSc in Environment and Sociology from University of Surrey, UK, which led to a published thesis examining the coverage of complex environmental issues in current affairs programmes at the BBC; an MA in Journalism and Communications from the University of Texas at Austin, culminating in a thesis about the elimination of television; and a BA in Music & Russian, which led to being a classical music critic, followed strangely enough, by working on, and eventually directing, rock videos." [2]

Darley, is "currently investigating how to bring to the forefront of public attention such critical resource issues as oil peak and depletion, fish stock destruction, and manifold water problems. Suggested policy responses are informed by a wide range of critical analyses from disparate disciplines, such as philosophy, cultural studies, sociology, ecology, music, governance, evolutionary psychology, and politics," he wrote in 2003.
