OPINION: Mark Zuckerberg's multimillion- dollar housing project on Hawaii is attracting a lot of interest.
Conservation International says Ardern has become its sixth Arnhold Distinguished Fellow and would serve a two-year term to advocate internationally, especially on issues affecting the Pacific and Antarctica. The group said the role was considered part-time and came with a stipend.
This is the same Ardern who in her two terms as PM failed to get agriculture on board with her climate agenda.
Ardern's government joined other nations in 2020 in symbolically declaring a 'climate emergency'. Though the declaration came without any new statutory powers or money, she said at the time that it acknowledged the burden the next generation faces.
