About the Topic

The Center for the Blue Economy celebrates the work that Alice has done as Lead Geospatial Information System (GIS) Researcher with the Leave it in the Ground Initiative, and the incredible opportunity she had to present at COP26.   She will share her reflections with us, and tell us about her work.  As she told us prior to COP26:    “I have created a global map identifying the overlap between fossil fuel deposits and protected areas, and then tracked and classified the extraction operations in these delicate sites. I’ll be presenting my work, naming and shaming the worst offenders, and pushing for nations to honor their protected designations by halting extraction operations within them.”   Let’s hear how it all went down.
