Are there any changes we should make?
Note that the Kelvin History website is a newly innovated addition to our school's many historical memorabilias. With the hundreds of biographies already added by a group of dedicated students we are not always opportuned to receive information that would better benefit our alumni biographies. If by chance you feel as though you have some missing details on any particular alumni then we will graciously accept to hear about them from you personally!Suggest a Change

Pat Mooney is an ecologist and an activist. For several decades, he has helped civil society groups around the world with development and trade issues by providing his expertise on agricultural biodiversity and new technologies. In 1977, Mooney co-founded the Rural Advancement Fund International, later renamed the ETC Group (2001), in order to examine the impact of new technologies on rural communities. Although he never received a university degree, Mooney is the author and co-author of several books such as Seeds of the Earth: A Private or Public Resource? (1983) and Shattering: Food, Politics, and the Loss of Genetic Diversity (1990). He was the recipient of the Right Livelihood Award from the Swedish Parliament (1985) and the Pearson Medal of Peace from the Governor General (1998).
