Aashish Khullar is the first (now former) elected official on our Podcast though he doesn't fit its usual definition. He works with the UN system on global governance for sustainable development, specifically on environmental and economic issues.


He formerly represented the United Nations Major Group for Children and Youth at various intergovernmental and multistakeholder processes.


Extremely passionate for sustainable development, the importance of intergovernmental cooperation, and ecological economics, Aashish believes in multilateralism's power to solve global problems.


In this cross-dimensional conversation, we touch upon (among other things): 

  • The Mechanics of United Nations
  • Ecological Economics and Why Limits to Growth Isn't Such a Bad Thing
  • Degrowth
  • Stranded Assets and Ecological Risk 
  • Inertia and How Political Will Depend on Perspective
  • The Future of Climate Change within Global Governance
