Steve Connor is the founder and CEO of Creative Concern, a multidisciplinary communications agency launched in Manchester in 2002.
Creative Concern is one of the UK’s first and leading agencies exclusively dedicated to place, social issues and communications for a sustainable future. Steve works with cities, NGOs and corporations on projects that focus on sustainability strategy and campaigns, city futures, green transport, climate change, place branding and anything to do with trees or bikes.
Steve recently finished 18 months as chair of the Community Forest Trust and of the Manchester Climate Change Partnership. He is also a member of the North West Forestry and Woodlands Advisory Committee, helped to launch the Northern Forest project, and has spent the last 10 years as one of the driving forces behind a pan-European network of ethical agencies called Do Not Smile.
Before Creative Concern, Steve was part of a think tank called Sustainability North West, and prior to that was campaigns director of a national NGO.
