Jonty Leibowitz

2017/18 Fellow

Jonty studied History at the University of Cambridge and graduated with a Double Starred First. He specialised in modern British political history, exploring the interplay between politics and social activism. It is with this interest that he is excited to delve into the world of social entrepreneurship. At University, Jonty was Chair of the Cambridge Universities Labour Club and helped organise the successful election (and re-election) of Daniel Zeichner MP.  Jonty is also a committed activist and leader of Jewish youth movements, and has coordinated pro-peace and interfaith campaigns, as well as regularly running summer camps and trips abroad. He also worked with Citizens UK in 2015 on a highly successful campaign to resettle 50 Syrian refugees in London.

An avid advocator of many things – from football to folk music – Jonty writes articles, appears on podcasts, and is an experienced public speaker.
