Mac Macartney is an international speaker, writer and change-maker. He has established a portfolio of enterprises both in the commercial and not-for-profit sectors, including Embercombe, a valley on the edge of Dartmoor National Park which seeks to explore and promote the profound regeneration of land, society, and people. Over a period of twenty years Mac was mentored by a group of indigenous elders. During this training and ever since, he has attempted to bring two worlds together – an ancient world-view that emphasises relationship, interdependence, and reverence for life with the significant challenges and opportunities of the twenty-first century.
In 2013 he was presented with the Enlightened Society Award, and in 2015 he was awarded an Honorary Doctorate in Education by Plymouth University. He has delivered four compelling TEDx talks. Mac is a member of Danone North America’s Advisory Committee. In the past he has also sat on the sustainability advisory panels for Lafarge, Lend Lease, and Procter & Gamble.
