Jonathan Cloud is a lifelong environmentalist, community organizer, and entrepreneur. An early pioneer in passive-solar design and construction in Canada in the 1970s and 80s, as well as an environmental community activist, he received a UN Environment Award in 1985, in recognition of his work in renewable energy, conservation, and appropriate technology.
His career has spanned journalism, politics, invention, housing design and construction, database, software, and Internet development, financial services, networking, nonprofits, network marketing, and sustainable business development.
He has lived in over a dozen countries, spoken several languages, and published articles and translations. His passion, however, is human transformation and empowerment in the broadest sense. He was a longtime volunteer and IFLP Leader with Landmark Education, a university lecturer, a Millionaire Mind graduate, and the founder of a successful local business network in one of the wealthiest areas in the U.S.
His current focus is facilitating the transition to a green economy, through the Sustainable Business Incubator at Fairleigh Dickinson University, and working with Woodbridge Township on several initiatives, including the development of a 107-acre brownfield site as a Green Technology Park and the creation of the Greenable Woodbridge Museum of a the Future, a community outreach and engagement project located at the Woodbridge Center mall. He was the organizer of the 2008 and 2009 Green Ventures Conferences at Fairleigh Dickinson portions of which are archived at Jumpstarting the New Green Economy.)
He is the founder of the Sustainable Leadership Forum and a member of several nonprofit boards. He is also the co-leader of the Sustainable Haiti Coalition, a network of government, academic, and civil society organizations devoted to the long term sustainable reconstruction of Haiti.
