Jonathan Tame

Jonathan trained as an agricultural economist and worked for the British government’s development agency in Cameroon, before joining a faith-based NGO in Lausanne, to lead their relief and development support office. In 1994 he married Helene, a palliative care nurse, and they moved to Romania to develop a number of social, educational and cultural projects together. These included an international environmental workshop; an arts cafe which hosted a variety of lectures, exhibitions and debates; a women’s counselling centre and maternity home. In 2006 they left Romania for Switzerland, where Jonathan set up a small institute to introduce Geneva’s spiritual heritage to people working in the city’s international community. Jonathan developed a variety of training events on the relevance of Judeo-Christian thinking to different professions and domains of society. He also served on the board of Medair, a Swiss-based relief agency. The family moved to Cambridge in 2009 so Jonathan could join Relationships Global. In January 2012 he moved across to its sister organisation Jubilee Centre to take up the post of director, but he still helps out part time with RG.
