Eddie is currently leading a 'blue paper' on 'The human relationship with our ocean planet' for the High Level Panel on the Future Ocean Economy.

The panel is composed of world leaders developing solutions for maintaining Ocean “health and wealth” from the perspectives of policy, governance, finance, and technology. The panel sees these solutions as critical for achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s), and encourages collaborative, interdisciplinary work around the globe.
