Simon Denyer is most famously a member of a Pulitzer Prize-winning team of journalists. The team from The Washington Post took a global approach to the problem of climate change, with Denyer looking at the impact on the Japanese fishing industry.
Alongside his pioneering journalism work, Denyer is a member of the WildAid group dedicated to protecting endangered species around the world. Over the last two years, the journalist has become engaged in a series of articles detailing the legacy of the 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics.
Alongside his work detailing the importance of the Tokyo Olympics on the world during a pandemic, Denyer has looked at the overall cost for the Japanese taxpayer. In articles published by The Washington Post, Simon Denyer explained the Japanese taxpayer has left to foot a bill of $15 billion for the Games.
However, the Japanese taxpayer has been left with no legacy to hold onto because the public was unable to attend the Games in person. Simon Denyer believes the work done to bring the Summer Olympics to Tokyo has left a complex legacy that may take years to unravel.
Denyer has worked for The Washington Post and Reuters, with his work bringing a greater understanding of the political landscape of Southeast Asia.
Educated at Cambridge University, Denyer has become one of the most respected voices on global politics in the news sector. Simon Denyer believes in fighting for the causes he believes in, including trying to halt the illegal trade in the endangered pangolin. The pangolin is found across Africa and Asia, with the endangered species giving birth to one baby every 18 months. Simon Denyer’s: Twitter.
