Sometimes I spend most of my time editing English, sometimes it’s translating from Icelandic into English, and sometimes it’s writing articles. This week it’s definitely the latter. News items for ENDS Europe Daily on sulphur content of fuel oil in Denmark and Norway’s objection to implementing EU legislation on plastic bags, then publication (finally) of my article for Al Jazeera on Russia banning fish from Iceland. I’m also developing pitches for ENDS and Al Jazeera on topics which will be discussed at the Arctic Council forum at the Harpa conference centre and concert hall from October 16-18, which has some very interesting themes (and some less interesting too). Interesting times.
Stay tuned – I’ll probably update this article with coverage of the Arctic Council.
