In the Media

Speaking to an audience of journalists at European Parliament

I’m a passionate communicator! My work has been featured by BBC World Service, BBC Food Programme, Guardian, Monocle, Bloomberg TV, Canadian Geographic, El País, Global and Mail, Huffington Post, La Repubblica, BBC Radio 4, Berlingske, Politiken, Le Monde, ELLE, Digital Trends, National Post, Reader’s Digest, O Globo and RAI TV1.

I was interviewed by the Guardian about my work at the Nordic Food Policy Lab: “Scandinavia now leads the world in food policy, too. In 2018, Dr Afton Halloran, one of the world’s foremost experts on sustainable food systems, published a collection of innovative food policies from around the Nordic region, the Solutions Menu. It outlined the benefits of 24 innovative food policies, aggregated from successful initiatives around the Nordic region – including universal free school meals, organic food in hospitals and schemes to help farms move towards zero food waste. Halloran and her co-authors cited Noma and the New Nordic movement as their chief inspiration.”

Read my interview with the Equal Times, a trilingual news and opinion website focusing on labour, human rights, culture, development, the environment, politics and the economy from a social justice perspective.
