What’s your role in the Ideas That Matter team?
I am one of the co-directors (!)
If you were to speak on Ideas That Matter, what would your talk be about?
There are so many issues I would have to choose from! In the end it would probably come down to either
i) A marine/ocean related issue that will have to do with the beauty but also the destruction of our seas
ii) Changing the world: grass roots movement vs high-level negotiations
What place in your home country would you recommend people to visit?
I am originally from Ayia Napa (lovin’ it lovin’it if you are aware of the song). Just outside Ayia Napa in the Cape Greko Natura site lies my favourite place in the whole world – the amazing sea caves that the locals call Palathkia (Palaces)
What is your favourite TED talk and why?
There are so many amazing talks that I find it really hard to choose one! But this recent one from TEDxNicosia shows the amazing bicommunal initiatives in Cyprus, a subjct close to my heart. I would love that everyone watches it!
