Conn Nugent

Senior Fellow

Conn’s career has been evenly divided between running philanthropies and running organizations that depend on them. He previously directed TOF’s major study for The Pew Charitable Trusts on the science, economics and geopolitics of seabed mining. As president of the Heinz Center for Science, Economics and the Environment, a Washington think-tank, Conn also oversaw programs in ecosystem management, carbon pricing, and environmental health. When Conn was the executive director of the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War, the non-profit was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
