Nicholas Carlisle

Changemaker, Keynote speaker, Coach




I’ve dedicated my life to social justice and children's well-being. After two decades of living in California I returned to London to direct Power of Zero a global initiative to teach young children the life skills they need for an increasingly online world. The campaign brings together parents, teachers, researchers and NGOs around the world. 


I graduated in philosophy and ancient history from Oxford University, worked as a barrister in Lincoln’s Inn while serving as chairman of the Amnesty International UK Charitable Trust.  In California I practiced as a child and family psychotherapist, where I founded and led No Bully, a US based non-profit with the mission to eradicate bullying and cyberbullying worldwide. I gave a TEDx  talk on bullying, and have been recognized by Toms as a Game Changer, by Ashoka as a Champion of Children’s Wellbeing and by Hearts on Fire as a visionary.



“No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”


Nelson Mandela, Long Walk to Freedom
