Jonathan Scheele moved to Oxford in 2010 after spending 36 years working for the European Commission in Brussels, Geneva and Bucharest, finishing his European career as its Representative in London. During his time in the Commission Jonathan handled a range of policy areas, including transport infrastructure planning and smart transport, as well as trade negotiations, international transport negotiations and external relations.
Essex born and bred, Jonathan is a Cambridge graduate in electrical engineering and economics, with experience in industry in the UK before moving to Brussels in 1974. He is a trustee of several UK-based non-governmental organisations active in Oxfordshire and elsewhere. He is a member of St Antony’s College SCR, working with the European Studies Centre.
Jonathan joined Oxford Civic Society in 2012 and has been active on transport and development issues. He is particularly keen to understand why Oxford has not so far been as successful as Cambridge in achieving the level of sustainable development to which it should aspire.
