Ben Rider

Ben is a media and communications officer with over five years’ agency and in-house experience working on issues such as climate, social inequality, health, and nature. He spent several years working across the campaign portfolio at Friends of the Earth – putting the organisation in front of new audiences and recruiting a new generation of environmental activists.  

Now part of the environment and sustainability team at Barley, Ben is passionate about the power of communications for good; rallying public support behind meaningful causes, inspiring people to act, pressurising those in power to do better and driving positive social and environmental change.   

Ben is always looking into new ways to approach a campaign and get the key messages out there, trying out new creative ideas to get the best results.
