Kura ya maoni iliyoendeshwa katika nchi 21 ikihusisha watoto na watu wazima zaidi ya 21,000 imeonesha kuwa watoto wanaamini dunia inakuwa bora zaidi huku watu wazima wakiwa na shaka na shuku. Taarifa zaidi na Anold Kayanda Matokeo ya utafiti huo ulioratibiwa na shirika la Umoja wa Mataifa la kuhudumia watoto, UNICEF, yametolewa leo kuelekea siku  ya mtoto duniani tarehe 20 mwezi huu wa Novemba ambapo watoto na vijana wanaamini kuwa maisha yao ya utoto yamekuwa bora kuliko ya wazazi wao sambamba na huduma za afya na elimu. Watoto na vijana pia wanajiona wao kuwa raia wa dunia na wanakumbatia ushirikiano wa kimataifa zaidi katika kukabili changamoto ikiwemo janga la Corona au COVID-19 na wana imani kubwa na wanasayansi katika kutatua changamoto za dunia. Ingawa hivyo watoto na vijana licha ya matumaini yao, hawajabweteka na kila uchao wanahaha kusaka majawabu ya changamoto zinazokumba dunia hivi sasa ikiwemo madhara ya tabianchi, msongo wa mawazo na uwepo wa taarifa zisizoaminika katika mitandao ya jamii. Akizungumzia matokeo ya utafiti huo, Mkurugenzi Mtendaji wa UNICEF Henrietta Fore amesema”kuna sababu lukuki za kuwepo kwa shaka na shuku katika dunia ya leo. Mabadiliko ya tabianchi, umaskini, ukosefu wa usawa,  ongezeko la kutoaminiana na uzawa. Lakini kuna sababu pia za matumaini watoto na vijana wanakataa kuitazama dunia kupitia lensi ya macho ya watu wazima.” Bi. Fore amesema watoto na vijana wamesalia na matumaini na wana mtazamo wa kidunia na wako tayari kufanya dunia kuwa pahala bora. Vijana wa leo wana hofu ya siku za usoni lakini wanajiona kuwa sehemu ya majawabu. Kura ya maoni ilipatiwa jina la Mradi wa kubadilika kwa utoto, na ni ya kwanza kufanyika ikihusisha vizazi tofauti ikiwa ni kati ya umri wa miaka 15 hadi 24 na kuanzia miaka 40 na kuendelea. Wahusika walitoka maeneo ya Afrika, Ulaya, Asia, Amerika Kaskazini na ya Kati na wenye vipato tofauti tofauti.  Nchi zilizoshiriki ni Argentina, Bangladesh, Brazil, Cameroon, Ethiopia, Ufaransa, Ujerumani, Japan, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Lebanon, Mali, Morocco, Nigeria, Peru, Hispania, Uingereza, Ukraine, Marekani na Zimbabwe.

Wakati Mkutano wa 26 wa nchi wanachama wa mkataba wa mabadiliko ya Tabianchi COP26 ukiwa umemalizika mwishoni mwa wiki huko Scotland huku Afrika ikisema haijafanikiwa ilivyotaraji, huko nchini Cameroon mabadiliko ya tabianchi yameleta uhasama baina ya wafugaji, wakulima na wavuvi, sababu kubwa ya ugonvi huo ni mbinu walizobuni za kukabiliana na mabadiliko ya tabianchi. Leah Mushi na taarifa zaidi.  Nats…  “Mvua ni chache sana. Sijui sababu ya mabadiliko ya tabianchi lakini inabidi tubadilike na kuwahifadhi samaki wakati wa kiangazi. Mavuno tunayapata kwenye kilimo hayatoshi.” Ndivyo anavyosema  Assiam Yere, mkimbizi wa ndani eneo la Musgum nchini Cameroon. Katika kutafuta suluhu ya kukabiliana na mabadiliko ya tabianchi wakulima na wavuvi wa Musgum wakaona ni vyema kuchimba mashimo makubwa kwa ajili ya kuhifadhi maji ya mvua ili yawasaidie kipindi cha ukame.   Lakini wafugaji waarabu wa Choa hawataki kuyaona wala kuyasikia sababu kwao ni mitego ya kifo kwa ng'ombe wao kwani huteleza kwenye miteremko mikali, huvunja miguu na wakati mwingine kuzama kabisa katika mashimo hayo.   Robert Mati ni mkulima wa kijiji cha Missiska anasimulia mapigano yaliyotokea mwezi Agosti mwaka huu kati ya wafugaji na wavuvi yalisababisha vifo vya watu 45 na majeruhi 74 . Vijiji 19 viliteketezwa kwa moto na zaidi ya watu 23,000 walilazimika kuyakimbia makazi yao. “Waarabu wa Choa walikuja kufukia mashimo tuliyochimba. Kwa kweli, walitaka tuyajaze mchanga mashimo siku hiyo hiyo. Ikiwa hatukufanya hivyo walisema wangetuua”   Naye mwanakijiji wa kijiji cha  Demza Issa Mahmat, anasema "Kwa sasa, kila mtu anaogopa, usiku ukiwa kitandani, hakuna kulala, wengine wanalala nje."   Hofu hii ndio imesababisha maelfu kuyakimbia makazi yao, kuvuka mto Logone hadi nchini Chad. Na ndani ya miezi miwili, takriban watu 8,800 wamesajiliwa kuwa wakimbizi na shirika la Umoja wa Mataifa la kuhdumia wakimbizi - UNHCR. Juhudi za UNHCR zimewezesha zaidi wakimbizi wa ndani 12,000 kurejea makwao ingawa wengi wao wanasema hawalali fofofo. Kwa mujibu wa UNHCR mabadiliko ya tabianchi yamekuwa chanzo kikuu cha watu kuyahama makazi yao na sababu kuu inayowazuia watu kurudi. Wakimbizi wengi wanasema watakabiliwa na njaa ikiwa watarudi nyumbani.

That prefigurative. And it's a powerful way of change. But when you translate that into leadership, it's 'proleptic.' Because you have that vision of that perfect society that you want to create. And that vision drives your leadership, it drives the way you are, what you're being on every level...on the personal level, on the inner relational level, on the social level. Once you have that vision so clear, glimpses of it keep coming to you."Resource Mentioned in This EpisodeBook: Governing the Commons by Elinor OstromSample Eco Village: EcoVillage at IthacaAssociation: International Society for the Study of the CommonsCity of the Future: TelosaAbout The International Leadership Association (ILA)The ILA was created in 1999 to bring together professionals with a keen interest in the study, practice, and teaching of leadership. Connect with Scott AllenWebsite

Ladybugs (Ladybirds or Coccinellidae) are a widespread family of small beetles. Regardless of their name, they are not bugs nor birds. We're not sure where their name comes from but it might come from "Beetle of Our Lady" in reference to the Virgin Mary. Many cultures consider them good luck, this is probably because they sometimes eat unwanted pests which helps preserve crops.In The Good The Bad the NewsThis week it's complicated. Jennifer talks about the cocaine hippos from Colombia and how they have become the first animals recognized as “legal persons” in the U.S. (If you want to learn more about them listen to our episode all about Hippopotamus found at the link below). Then she talks Penis worms that lived in the depths of ancient seas more than 500 million years ago. Amber didn't look into bad news because bad news is sad, but for her good news refugees in Cameroon have turned a desert camp into a thriving forest.Ladybugs are often brightly colored with small black spots on their wing covers, with black legs, heads and antennae.  However, they are not all red and some are not colorful at all. There are 6,000 ladybug species worldwide and almost 500 species in North America.Unfortunately, due to invasive species of ladybugs, such as the Harlequin ladybird (Asian lady beetle, Asian Ladybug) and the Seven-spotted ladybug, native North American ladybug species, such as the nine-spotted ladybug, are becoming displace and even extinct in some areas. Listen now to learn about the good luck bug, one of nature's natural pests, and  also, one of nature's natural pest controls.Link to the episode about Hippos: https://betterthanhuman.buzzsprout.com/603916/4990118-i-want-a-hippopotamus-wait-never-mind-hippopotamus-are-terrifyingly-deadlyFollow us on Twitter @betterthanhuma1on Facebook @betterthanhumanpodcaston Instagram @betterthanhumanpodcasthttps://www.tiktok.com/@betterthanhumanpodcastor Email us at betterthanhumanpodcast@gmail.comWe look forward to hearing from you, and we look forward to you joining our cult of weirdness!#betterthanhuman #cultofweirdnes

The destruction of the natural world is the ‘other' global environmental crisis, but it is entwined with climate change. Global warming is the number-one cause of that destruction, and the loss of forests and other ‘carbon sinks' is increasing the pace of climate change. At COP26, world leaders agreed to  halt and reverse deforestation and land degradation by the end of the decade, pledging  $19 billion in public and private funds. Among the countries to sign up were  Brazil, Indonesia and Democratic Republic of Congo, which collectively account for 85% of the world's forests. In this episode we speak to Tabi Joda, a forester in Cameroon who is helping plant the Great Green Wall - reforesting a strip right across the southern edge of the Sahara desert.

Today on the show we have a few things to chat about. So, there's been some updates from chapters, and we have an event happening this coming week in Ireland, and will be hearing from Sarah, our brilliant chapter Lead shortly. We will also include the event in Australia on November 17 again with Ines and Luke Craven which is a brilliant event - and replay the message from the last episode First up. Slack Channel We had a few teething issues around self-on boarding  to the Slack channel over the last week and that has been resolved now (hopefully)! As we move away from Meetup on Jan 1, we want to create more community level conversation within our Slack. A few people asked why we are leaving Meetup. Well there are a few reasons - I will cover off.   In my option, Meetup is a bad system for Community leaders to host with. The system itself is really clunky, poorly designed, and they never want you to leave. In fact once my credit card didn't go through, around the time I was leaving Australia. Without knowing this, they offered one of the communities to the first person on the list. Who could have taken the community that I had been paying for and I would have lost it. Meetup didn't care about this as this was their process. So you can't really LEAVE or close the community They do nothing to encourage community interaction. All it is is a database with people. We want to do more in this space, and Meetup is not the right place for us to do this. We have a Pro Level Mailchimp account, and Slack channel and figure we can do this better - with a little more work. So hope people will move over and follow us off Meetup. It might not be perfect, but it gets us closer than working with Meetup Back in the day, when I was a musician and working for Myspace - I saw businesses pour millions and millions of dollars into their Myspace communities. I saw bands and musicians delete their websites and replay the narrative that you don't need a website anymore, myspace does it all and better. This was probably true at the time for some. But what happened when a big corporate like News bought the website, and ran it into the ground? All that effort of building communities just floated away. I don't want that for the This is HCD Community system. We would rather own and have better control how we work, and use platforms that are agnostic. So going back to Slack - in the show notes now, you can join up. Join one of the channels in your timezone, like UK, Ireland, Sydney, Berlin, Melbourne, Cameroon etc. If you know of other people in your area who might be interested, invite them along too. We want to create a two level community - at a Global Level and at a Community level.  Melbourne event happening soon too - and will have more in the next episode   UK event In other news, we are edging closer to our first event in This is HCD UK.

Professor Deborah Lawrence is a pioneer in tropical forest ecology, but also in integrating a broad variety of academics and real world experiences to better understand environmental problems and solutions. In this episode we talk from the theme of "de-fragmentation" as a fundamental solution for people today, socially and environmentally. We divide the interview into three sections. In part 1 Dr. Lawrence shares an overview of her scientific work distinguishing tropical forests as having greater influence over global climate and weather than other ecosystems. In part 2 she talks about her “awakening” to animals and rainforests and the Indigenous people in them, during college, which led to roughly six years of research in remote Borneo. That experience had a tragic end, but 15 years later had a beautiful resolution. She shares about that journey and its value today. And in the third segment, Dr. Lawrence talks about her vision for an optimal future for everyone. About Deborah LawrenceDeborah Lawrence, Ph.D., is Director of the Environmental Thought & Practice program and a Professor of Environmental Sciences at the University of Virginia, Charlottesville. Her extensive research focuses on nutrient cycling, Indigenous peoples, the links between tropical deforestation and climate change, and  the impacts of forest conversion on our climate around the globe. She is an adviser to the US Forest Service and US AID. She has spent more than twenty-five years doing field-based research in Indonesia, Costa Rica, Mexico, and Cameroon. She and her students work with partners in hydrology, atmospheric science, economics, anthropology, ethics, engineering, law, and more to understand the drivers and consequences of the issues around ecosystem destruction. She has earned numerous awards, including a Guggenheim Fellowship, a fellowship from the National Academy of Sciences, and a Fulbright Scholarship. She earned her undergrad at Harvard University, her Ph.D. at Duke, and was a post-doctoral fellow at Harvard. Learn more about Dr. Lawrence's work here and here. Notes -- This episode explores its topics under the theme of De-Fragmentation. Section 1: Tropical Forest “Teleconnections”. We begin by discussing Dr. Lawrence's breakthrough 2014 study on Tropical Forest teleconnections: AKA, tropical forests' influence on global moisture cycles. Tropical rainforests are better at stabilizing global climate than any other land-based ecosystem. Dr. Lawrence shares:  Definition of tropical forest teleconnections Her biggest takeaways from that study, today  How trees' leaves serve the whole planet. “Leaves are tiny pumps.” (Chris) Whether or not tropical re-forestation can reduce heat and drought around the world The power of thoughtful reforestation and deforestation Two recommendations for how to protect tropical rainforests.  Section 2: Lessons learned in Borneo. Dr. Lawrence tells us how she ended up living and working in a remote village in Borneo for roughly six years until “getting kicked out.” She shares general as well as very profound, personal lessons learned from that time. Check "Quotes" below for some takeaways.  Section 3: Envisioning an Optimal Future. Professor Lawrence expands on her earlier statements from this interview: that we need to work to be connected to each other and the planet, know all we can about how to protect the rainforests, change our economy, recognize the environment as our life-support system, feel the miraculousness of photosynthesis, conserve more, and help more because we care more. See Quotes for takeaways.  Quotes“Tree cover stabilizes climate.""There are certain scale effects of deforestation. Scale matters. If you can think through the local climate and the local atmospheric dynamics you can figure out how to manage rainfall through deforestation.""The atmosphere is all connected. Forests move a lot of moisture through their leaves... That sets up a bunch of dynamics in the atmosphere that come out of the Tropics and ultimately have ripple effects across the globe... We need to protect large, large patches of forest.""Know all you can about the products you consume. Address climate through the political system. We need to act.""Work together. Try to be connected.""The first thing that struck me from almost the get go, is that people are the same everywhere. They wanted to eat, a decent house, schooling for their kids, care for their family when they were sick, and enough money to throw a great wedding for their kids. That was it! I'm pretty sure that's what I want, as a parent, I mean, it's pretty much the same thing. So, stunning to me. I mean, maybe not stunning — of course, we're all the same. Maybe you just don't get that if you don't actually go somewhere else and discover they just want the same things.”“Water keepers are everywhere. The water is a big thing everywhere.”“Working together is how you do it when things are hard. You pull together for planting, for healing, for parties… We can work together and we can find a path.” “When making big decisions, it's important to be thoughtful and move a bit slowly, especially when those decisions have to do with the land. . . You cannot walk back decisions to deforest the planet. The better thing to do is just to not do it in the first place. . . Our planet depends on leaving these forests alone. . . It is simple, hard and utterly important.”“And I thought, “Oh my goodness, it wasn't all me…” I had spent 15 years blaming myself, and I knew in fact I was to blame, I had plenty of blame, but to know that I was forgiven, and that these people were sorry, and that it wasn't all lost… Aside from my kids — the other best thing that's ever happened to me was to get this back, to feel like it wasn't lost; I wasn't lost to them and they weren't lost to me.”“I hope we ALL have a chance in less than 15 years to go back to whoever we hurt or whoever we failed and to get some clarity or some forgiveness. I think a really important message is that you shouldn't give up on people, and that people make mistakes, big ones. We're all human. These sound like cliches, but it's the truth. We do make mistakes. It's important to try hard to stay connected. Try hard to stay connected and if you get disconnected try even harder to get reconnected. When I think about my deepest failure, it was a failure to listen and a failure to maybe ask for more… I think the best thing you can do is actually discuss your feelings, and for me now, the message now, is that this extends to the way i feel about our planet and our future… and the fact that we have to work together, and if we don't we stand to lose a lot. We stand to lose not only our connection to the planet, which sustains us, but our connection to each other… So I think trying to be connected is the way we get through this.”“We should be skeptical of our own stories because we don't actually know it all.”“This fragmented world that we live in is something we have got to come to grips with... Our country was built on slavery... Our country was inhabited before we got here, and we took that land... The other acknowledgment that we need is that we are living in this lifeboat called, “the planet Earth,” and it is our life-support system, it's the only one we have, and we depend on it utterly... I hope it becomes another one of those acknowledgements, that the Earth is sustaining us, and we need to remember that everyday.”"My vision for the future is that we are fundamentally not so divided from each other.""I want us to be a people who are together with each other and together with the planet.""My ideal future: we nailed it and we addressed climate change and when climate catastrophes hit we help because we want to help each other out...

Anna Mbengam was born and raised in Cameroon. She was introduced to the Scrum Master role after she graduated college while pondering what she wanted to do. She did her own research and joined the Agile community of practice where she networked and got her first Scrum Master position. She wrote the 30-60-90-day strategic guide for getting up to speed seamlessly was inspired by her process of coaching new and transitioning Scrum Masters in the industry. She has always wanted to share with others the information she wished she had received while breaking into the field. She believed in the power of sharing. Her desire to help others stems from the idea that ‘it takes a village to raise a child.' This resonated with her because she was raised by a community, and part of giving back is to support others in their journey.

To give you an overview of chapters that we now have in place we have Cameroon with Yannick, Sydney with Inez Garcia, Berlin with Myrto Papagiannakou , Ireland with Sarah Heffernan, UK with Laura Folorni and Melbourne with Megan McDonald.  If you're interested in leading a chapter in your area, drop us a line to gerry@thisishcd.com and we will connect you to our wonderful and incredible Global Chapter Lead - Rebekah Murphy who is based in Sydney, Australia. Now - let's kick off there's been lots going on this week in the This is HCD and This is Doing worlds. First up, we have some amazing news, and that is KA McKercher - one of our newest podcast hosts will be training with This is Doing and is working away with Ann, our incredible learning designer based in Denver to create a Co-Design course in early 2022. That isn't that long away… For members inside the Slack community - we have released new Chapter specific areas for you to join and connect with communities and practitioners in your area. Our goal is to connect, and we realise there are many ways to do this - and we want to test out how this works. We'd love to cultivate more connections to help a live ecosystem of sharing and knowledge exchange. Up until this point, we had applications for the Slack channel, and we are going to trial an open door policy to the Slack community - where anyone can join who is interested in learning about HCD and joining our incredible community. There are about 1600 people in there at the moment, and given it's not as active as we'd like - we are really starting to focus on this a lot more, given that we are moving away from Meetup globally on Jan 1 2022.  Which brings us to the next bit of news - Sydney's Chapter Lead, Inez Garcia has been in touch to tell us about an event they are hosting with Luke Cravens, a really smart person that I follow actually - and looks to have been doing some incredible work with the ATO in Australia (that's the Australian Tax Office for non-Aussie listeners) let's listen to Inez's overview.   See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

He is known by several names, but Gordon Hurd is the one this man-turned-meme adopted when he fled Cameroon for the UK more than two decades ago. Gordon eventually found the app Fiverr and started making videos for anonymous benefactors on the internet. That's how Gordon adopted another name, Big Man Tyrone, and became a viral video meme who gives scripted testimonials and has been named the leader of a fictional alt-right country called Kekistan. But there's a lingering question: Is Big Man Tyrone in on the joke? What happens when an African immigrant in the UK becomes the leader of a group of Trump supporters? We explore the complexities of the Big Man Tyrone meme and our own expectations of the responsibilities of Gordon Hurd.

The COVID-19 pandemic has taken it’s toll on every family, from frustration with being stuck at home, to job loss, to loneliness and social deprivation. But for many families, those three factors have been the perfect combination to provide an environment ripe for trauma. For children, we see that trauma has an impact on the development of the brain that effects learning, relationships, and emotional regulation. This seminar will give you a greater understanding of the developmental impact of trauma and tools to help children and adults grow in resilience rather than destruction through hard circumstances.

Hold Your Fire!

For almost five years, Cameroon's western provinces have been wracked by a deadly separatist insurgency. In 2016, Anglophone protesters took to the streets angry at the increasing use of French in courtrooms and schools. The government's crackdown fuelled support for separatism and the emergence of several separatist militias calling for a new state: Ambazonia. Separatists attacked security forces and for years also enforced a school boycott, depriving hundreds of thousands of children of their education. For the most part, Paul Biya's government has refused to talk directly to separatist leaders and has waged a brutal military campaign. Violence has killed thousands of people and displaced some 700,000 more. For now, no end is in sight. In the latest episode of Hold Your Fire!, Richard Atwood and Naz Modirzadeh talk with Arrey Elvis Ntui, Crisis Group's Senior Analyst for Cameroon, about the war, its toll and prospects for a settlement. They discuss the origins of Anglophone grievances and the motives of separatists and Biya's government in Yaoundé. They also talk about the role women play in both the insurgency and peacemaking efforts. They ask what a peaceful settlement would look like, and the role Cameroon's foreign partners could play in getting the parties to the table.For more information, explore Crisis Group's analysis on our Cameroon page.

As Martin prepares to pitch his business expansion plan, hear Matt's tips on how to grab attention, harness emotions, and create a lasting connection with your audience. Then listen in on Martin's actual pitch...and Matt's feedback. Almost every entrepreneur eventually needs to make a pitch to capture attention...and dollars. Martin Stimela is no exception. As CEO of Brastorne Enterprises, he's looking to raise capital to scale his growing technology company to 19 more countries, starting with Cameroon, Ethiopia, Guinea, and Mali. His vision: to connect the unconnected by enabling Internet access without the need for expensive data plans or smartphones. Matt Abrahams shares some tips and then listens in on Martin's pitch. Matt Abrahams is a Stanford lecturer and host of the podcast "Think Fast, Talk Smart," and he has plenty of strategic communications advice and techniques for both Martin and fellow entrepreneurs. Before you even write the first word of your pitch, Matt suggests you need to think first about who your audience is and what they need from you.“A fundamental mistake people make is they start by saying, here are the things I want to say. Rather, you need to focus on What do I want them to know? How do I want them to feel? And what do I want them to do?”Here are a few pitch-worthy pieces of advice:Create a good hook to capture people's attention“You know, 99% of people start with: Hi, my name is_______. Today, I'm going to talk about______. If you do something different, you automatically stand out as different.”Introduce a character“Think about leveraging testimonials, examples of how people are benefiting from your particular set of offerings. If we become familiar with a particular person and their situation, it makes it much more real for us than simply talking in generality.”Be conversational“Avoid reading word for word from a script or slides. Instead, focus on the structure of your message and the key ideas you want to get across.”Practice by teachingLike most things in business and life, practice makes perfect. And Matt encourages practicing by teaching.“Something that I find very useful for entrepreneurs to do is when they're working on pitches, I invite them to actually think about how would they teach somebody else to pitch their business. So bringing on a co-founder or a colleague, how would you teach them to pitch the business by putting themselves in the role of teacher, it helps them see things that we don't typically see.”Listen to Matt's advice and Martin's pitch to learn new strategies and techniques to improve your own pitch.Think Fast Talk Smart podcastNo Freaking Speaking Stanford SeedStanford Graduate School of BusinessSee Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

They discuss being a “professional human” and the importance of living your life fully.  Andy currently stars as the female lead, “Nora,” in Amazon Prime's critically acclaimed series, “Upload,” and has written and directed her first short film, ALICE.  She released her first album, UnFresh, in 2009 and two years later, joined Prince's New Power Generation as a singer/guitarist and worked with Prince on her album, Superconductor. Andy launched her Foundations of Focus Workshop last year coaching people to radically change their lives and realize their dreams.Link to Foundations of Focus Workshophttps://www.andyallo.com/workshopInsta @andyalloinfo@alloevolution.com
