Marshall Brown

Marshall Brown is the Co-Founder and President of Save the Great South Bay, a 501(c)3 environmental non-profit dedicated to the bay’s revitalization. There are 12,000 members, mostly from towns along Long Island's South Shore -- committed local citizens, baymen, paddle boarders, surfers, sailors, fishermen, and marine scientists who have come together to breathe life back into a dying bay so that their children and grandchildren can fish, clam, swim and sail as they had.

Mr. Brown writes for Forbes Digital on the topic of Building Sustainability at Scale. His goal is to build a rough roadmap to the near future, a place we would all chose to live in. Mr. Brown is also host of Water Matters, a weekly program featuring the leading environmental advocates on Long Island.

Prior to his life as an environmentalist, Marshall was a tech entrepreneur, bringing Wi-Fi to NYC’s parks, as well as a Teaching Fellow at Harvard in the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. He holds a BA from Dartmouth College and an MA from The University of Chicago. He lives on Long Island with his wife and two children.
