At the weekend: I’m surfing, immersed in the latest NatGeo issue, cooking a new recipe

An idea that powers me: I am worried about the disconnect between modern societies and our natural ecosystems. I believe a paradigm shift is on its way. I am convinced that triple win solutions that benefit nature, people and economies are the way forward. I am also convinced they are possible through multi-actor partnerships that leverage financial, technological, policy and governance innovations.
