Every November, World Fisheries Day is held to reflect on the importance of sustainable stocks of fisheries. To mark this occasion the World Ocean Initiative explores the precarious state of Arctic fisheries, reflects on fisheries-related insights from the World Ocean Summit and shines a light on the underrepresentation of women in blue foods.
I moderated a World Ocean Initiative Insight Hour on "Enhancing stewardship for the safe, sustainable use of the ocean", sponsored by the Lloyd's Register Foundation.

I spoke at the World Biodiversity Summit, a COP26 side event, in Glasgow. It is crucial not to neglect the role of biodiversity in the global climate conversations. Organised by the World Climate Foundation, the event featured a session on "Life Below Water - Harnessing The Blue Economy through Investment & Innovation".
10 years ago today I started at The Economist Group. My journey has taken me from Europe Editor at the height of the euro zone debt crisis to covering major global health challenges to leading projects on some of the most exciting sustainability issues of our time.
