I was fortunate enough to attend the annual staff “away-day” for members of The Conversation team based in the UK on Friday. It’s a decade since the project launched in the country and it was exciting to see many of those I worked with on that expansion into the northern hemisphere planning for what The Conversation will look like in its second decade.

Equally encouraging were the energy and ideas brought by editors who have joined The Conversation in the UK more recently. Teams in other parts of the world will also be gathering soon to consider what sort of the content can be of value to you, our readers, as we go forward.

The London meeting came at the end of a week in which we heard about a huge shift in the control of another international media organisation; one that was founded, and dominated for decades by Rupert Murdoch. For detailed coverage of the changes at Fox Corporation and News Corp, click here. Meanwhile, your thoughts on what we do are central to how we forge the future, and we very much encourage you to engage with your editorial team. That’s how The Conversation works, as an open collaboration between academic authors, editors and readers.

Our grocery stores are increasingly filled with ultra-processed foods, which have little to no nutritional value and a huge environmental impact. (Nathalia Rosa)

Ultra-processed foods are not only bad for our bodies, their production damages our environments

Laila Benkrima, Simon Fraser University

Ultra-processed foods are bad for our health and our planet and must be central to any efforts to reduce our carbon emissions, and waistlines.

Why is Rupert Murdoch stepping aside now and what does it mean for the company?

Andrew Dodd, The University of Melbourne

This is a decision that was always going to come in one of two forms: either Rupert dropping off the perch or him leaving on this own terms. He has opted for the latter.

Old Testament Trinity by Rublev (1420s). Reaktion Books

Andrey Rublev has been called the ‘greatest Russian artist who ever lived’ – but one of his most famous works is at risk under Putin

Robin Milner-Gulland, University of Sussex

Rublev, active around 1400 in and near Moscow, was a monk and painter of icons, frescoes and (possibly) manuscripts in the tradition of the Orthodox Church
