17 December 2013.

The editor of the European Marine Board's strategic report, which covers all planning for the next ten years, including what to do to enable the oceans to survive climate change, has asked if they can include my poem 'Pavlopetri'(originally published in the New Statesman) with a couple of comments of mine, to help illustrate the report. They want to get the sciences and the arts speaking together on this subject and also to make it as accessible as possible. They like the poem and think it will help.

The report goes to a staggering number of countries, places, politicians, cultural leads etc. A huge reach.

Of course I agreed to re-publicication, and feel both proud and humble to be asked!
