The global development domain currently faces huge challenges. Apart from trying to stimulate economic growth and ensuring a fair distribution of the benefits of that growth, national governments and their international partners must also tackle complex conflicts, provide humanitarian assistance, and not least address the harmful impacts of climate disruption. What then should the role of external actors be? How can good intentions be best mobilized into effective actions on the ground?Håvard Mokleiv Nygård is a Deputy Director-General of the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation, Norad, where he directs the Department of Knowledge.

So in today's solo episode, I'll dive into the P of passion, the first P and um, help you or. Hopefully plant some seeds to help you figure out your why. [00:03:26] I'll be talking about the 17 sustainable development goals and what they are, why they can help us figure out our why. , how to take those big global goals and apply them to our own personal human level. Why we're sometimes stuck on our journey to finding out our why and what to do in that case. Okay. [00:03:52] This is usually the part where I introduce my guest, but since it's just me today, I'll just introduce myself [00:04:00] again. I'm Sarah Z, as you know, the host of this podcast and founder of the Humane Marketing Revolution. I've grown up in this online marketing space, having founded my first LinkedIn consulting business in 2008. [00:04:16] Running and marketing this business for over a decade. Experiencing the rough world out there inspired me to create a global movement that encourages people to bring more empathy and kindness to business and marketing. That is my why. I call myself a hippie turn business coach because I've grown up in a small commun. [00:04:40] Here in Switzerland, which I talk about in my marketing, like we're human book. I also call myself the Mama Bear of our Humane Marketing Circle, our community of change makers and marketers who want to do marketing differently. and are part of this generation of marketers who [00:05:00] cares personality-wise, I'm a non-conformist and do business my way. [00:05:06] Even if sometimes that's, it's hard because everybody else does it differently. And so I have to keep reminding myself, but no, that way doesn't feel good. I'll do it my way. I'm a card caring, introvert and proud. So that's something I knew about myself. Uh, For, yeah, years and years. Um, what I did discover, um, fairly recently, a few years ago, is that I'm also an H S P, so highly sensitive person. [00:05:38] I'm a Capricorn, I'm a generator in the human design. I'm a type four in the Enneagram, and I'm an I N F J in the Meyers Bricks, uh, personality assessments. As I said, I'm like a mama bear. I am gentle but fierce. I do no harm, [00:06:00] but I take no shit either , so I really feel like this mama bear in front of the cave who's, you know, really protect, protecting her cubs. [00:06:10] That's how I feel like with my clients and, and the humane marketing circle. I'm extremely loyal and all my one-on-one clients have become good friends. So well, that's my self introduction for today. So with that, let's jump right in and talk about this idea of using the 17 sustainable development goals for or to help us find our Y. [00:06:37] So recently on a discovery call for the marketing like we're human program. A future participant asked me about the why. So the discovery of our why is part of the first module of that program and the P of passion. So she told me that she'd been on other programs where they just told her to, you know, figure [00:07:00] out your why. [00:07:01] and she's like, well, yeah, obviously we all kind of know now that this is part of, you know, our business and, and our marketing. But she's like, well, I felt so lost. How, how do you go about this, Sarah? Like, are you gonna help us , you know, beyond just telling us, well, now go figure it out, because it's obviously easier said than done. [00:07:25] And so that's when I mentioned that, uh, I use. Uh, among other things I used the 17 sustainable development goals to look at our why and, um, that's what I want to explain in this episode. . So let's start with the definition of the 17 sustainable development goals. So the 17 SDGs were adopted by the United Nations in 2015 as a universal call to action to end poverty, [00:08:00] protect the planet, and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. [00:08:05] So these are big goals on, you know, government. Type of goals, uh, country level type of goals. But again, I'll show you in a bit how we can use them and apply them to our human level. So let me read you the 17 sustainable Development goals. First one is no poverty. The second one is zero hunger. Third is good health and wellbeing. [00:08:30] Four is quality education, five is gender equality. Six is clean water and sanitation. seven is affordable and clean energy. Eight is decent work in economic growth. Nine is industry innovation and infrastructure. 10 is reduced inequalities. 11 is sustainable cities and communities. 12, responsible consumption and production.[00:09:00] [00:09:00] 13, climate action. 14. Life below water, 15, life on land. 16, peace, justice, and strong institutions. And 17 partnerships for the goals. So these. The 17 sustainable, uh, development goals. You can also go actually over to, uh, the global goals.org/goals website and, uh, have a look at the more information about these 17 goals. [00:09:33] And it comes with, um, kind of nice pictograms for each of the goals. So, As solo printers, coaches, healers, service professionals, these goals can obviously sound huge and overwhelming. And we might be thinking, well, how does this apply to me? What kind of difference can I make on my little one-on-one working with clients type [00:10:00] of business? [00:10:01] But the idea is not to make one of these goals. Our goal. Instead, what I ask participants of the marketing like we're human program, is to look at these goals and think about which one or two most resonate with them or with their ideal clients. What's the one thing that's most important to them, or in this case to you, dear listener, is that gender equality? [00:10:31] Is it good health and wellbeing? Is it to end poverty? , which one, of course, they're all important, but as change makers, we usually resonate more with one than others. For me, for example, it's decent work and economic growth. , so that's number eight. And the second one would be partnerships for the goals. So yeah, I noticed [00:11:00] that for myself, I want to make a difference and change the way we market so that we can use business as a lever for good. [00:11:09] Of course, I also care about zero hunger. , but it's just not in my zone of genius. I have no experience in that field. Um, I care strongly, but it's not where I can personally make an impact given the, yeah, the background and experience that I have. and my ideal clients struggle with sharing their gifts and therefore can use my help so that we all generate more economic growth together. [00:11:40] So that's why I feel strongly about the goal, decent work and economic growth. I feel like I, we, if we all had decent work that we love, the world would be a better place. business really can help to make a change for good. So something [00:12:00] that I want to promote. I also believe in a new perspective on work, which is focused on being more human and creating lives instead of just working and working and hustling and all of that. [00:12:16] and knowing more about myself. So that's has more to do with the personal power. P I'm a Capricorn, and so work in its largest sense is my topic. That's what I'm here to do in this lifetime. Um, . I just notice as much as I want to go into other topics and they do help me, you know, kind of with this work life balance, um, connecting with nature, being more artistic. [00:12:47] But what it comes down to for me is always kind of like related to the, yeah, the. , the making a living, right? [00:13:00] The, the, the money as well. The Capricorns are about work and so maybe why I am here at this moment of time, um, is also to help change this relationship to work. So I think that's why this, uh, number eight goal, decent work in economic growth, uh, speaks to me more than others. [00:13:23] So I hope you see how I had to really extrapolate from their descriptions of the un description of the goal and make it mine, because frankly, I don't really care about economic growth. Like that is so foreign language for me. But what I do care about is the way. Make a life for ourselves. The way, um, you know, justice like that, the, that, that there is enough, uh, work and that there is enough income for everybody and that work doesn't have to be such a, [00:14:00] A rough experience for us that we can care more about our work and our business and, and that business again also becomes part of the change, that as entrepreneurs, we can participate in making the world a better place. [00:14:18] So, . That's why it makes sense that my why is to bring more empathy and kindness to the business and marketing world. I hope, uh, my example kind of helps you understand how I look at these goals. They basically show us all the problems we have in our world right now. All the things that are broken and need fixing. [00:14:42] to me that's one way to find our why, find something that's bigger than ourselves that we have experienced that didn't work for us, that frustrates us, and that we want to fix. Again, I'm taking my example, is like I've been in this online [00:15:00] marketing world, business world for, you know, over a decade and it just did not work for me because I felt like. [00:15:08] You know, it's just business. Business is just business. It's not personal. That's what I always heard. And, and that just didn't no longer work for me. I'm like, no, this needs to be different. There needs to be a place for empathy and kindness in business and marketing. So that's the bigger thing. That's what, you know, keeps me going to create that change. [00:15:29] That is my why. And so it's bigger than me. Um, Because I'm not just doing it for myself, I'm really doing it kind of like, well, that's the small change I want to make. Um, and I'm not saying that's an easy process. It really isn't. It wasn't easy for myself. I, again, something I talk about in the, in the book. [00:15:55] Um, and it's not easy for the participants of my program [00:16:00] either. It, I call it the grown zone. Uh, you know, you're. Rumbling. Um, again, , the, the, the three parts of the marketing like we're human book is rumble, uh, rise and resonate. And so discovering who you are, discovering your why really is that rumbling and [00:16:22] That's why it's also the grown zone where you're just like, Oh, this is so hard. Um, and especially it's super hard for participants who come out of a corporate experience because frankly, in corporate life, nobody ever asks you what your why is. You are just basically, if the company has a why, you're like, well, this is your why now. [00:16:47] But oftentimes, companies, corporates don't have a why either. So you. You know, this is totally new. And so, yeah, it, it's not an easy process, but once you have it, [00:17:00] everything just makes sense. Everything you do is aligned with why you do it, and you keep showing up no matter how hard things are, because you kind of have this north star at your following because it comes from within as well, right? [00:17:16] It's not this, it's not this exterior thing like, I think oftentimes clients, I think that having your why is just kind of this one liner that you have to have on your website. And so they're kind of searching for something external where actually it has to come from within and it ha you have to do that in their work so that it's unshakable. [00:17:46] That's why. So, um, , they do always find their why, the participants of the, the program. It's, it's just sometimes it doesn't happen within the 10 weeks of the program. Um, and [00:18:00] you know, you sometimes you just have to plant the seeds, let it go, and then, uh, it will come when the time is ready. So, Um, I do also want to address that, uh, on occasion a person is completely stuck like I was on my journey, and, and that happens usually when the focus is too much on oneself, meaning that there's a lot of unalign that first needs to be fixed before we can go, you know, and, and fix things for others. [00:18:33] It's kind of like this, uh, analogy that we always use with the mask, um, the oxygen mask in the plane. Um, so in other words, we can't pick a why or find our why if we are still broken ourselves. We need to fix ourselves first. So we need to let go of the Y for a bit and continue walking into the labyrinth and rumble [00:19:00] with our story. [00:19:01] Um, again, that's the metaphor I use in the, in the marketing, like we're human book this metaphor of. rumbling while you walk into the labyrinth of your life. Coming to the center, standing in the middle of the labyrinth and rising in that middle, finding out how you are uniquely different, rising above, you know, the, the, the noise, and then walking back out as the new person that resonates with others. [00:19:32] that means, you know, needing to let go of old stories, limiting beliefs, gain confidence in what you're offering, um, and, and believing that that has huge value. So you really need to become whole again. Once you're whole, that's when you can go out and look for that, why that's bigger than yourself. So, um, yeah, it's really this idea.[00:20:00] [00:20:00] fixing ourselves first before trying to come up with a why that's bigger than ourselves. Um, that, that we, that feels co completely overwhelming because we are not whole yet. So, Maybe to, to wrap up again. Um, have a look at these 17 sustainable development goals, even if you are not yet on that journey to look at your why, but, um, it's just an interesting perspective to think about humanity and where we are now and all the big problems. [00:20:38] I think obviously they're formulated in this, in the, you know, terms of, in terms of goals, but really what there are is, these are the big giant problems we have as humanity right now, and that's what we're all trying to fix. Uh, they are doing that on a government level, but everybody counts right now. And so we are doing an ad on the, on [00:21:00] the human level, on the, you know, this is what I care about and this is where I'm gonna make a difference. [00:21:05] And if I'm not. An immediate or direct impact, then I'm helping my clients and they are also, uh, making an impact, right? So it's this ripple effect as well. So have a look at, uh, global goals.org/goals to find out more about each of the goals and hopefully, uh, it gives you an idea and you can pick one or two of those goals that really matter to.

Meaningful Marketplace Podcast
Guest number nine on our podcast show in late 2019, Jacoba Gundle was just getting ready to launch their new product a protein beverage. That, of course was the beginning of the COVID lockdown and a lot of commerce came to a screeching halt, including their targeted marketplace. The company had been readying packaging, fine tuning its recipes and had called its drink Restore Protein Water. Co-packers were all lined up and then…nothing. The market strategy was to sell at yoga studies, Pilates studios, exercise gyms and all in-person types of venues, which of course were vaporized. So from that point until 2021, the company rebranded, changed their marketing strategy, kept the formulation engineered at Oregon State University's Food Innovation Center (our very own Sarah Masoni is Director) and named the drink Tatu (tah too') Protein Water. There are two flavors, lemon ginger and orange mango, both loaded with 15 grams of protein but zero sugar per can. So the sudden stop of the lockdown became a blessing in disguise according to Jacoba, because it forced the company to slow down, make more thoughtful decisions and clearly this new path is working well. The company, Mindful Proteins has created its distribution through grocery store shelves and online sales. However, now that in-person venues are revitalized, the company is also selling in the yoga and exercise studios it originally targeted. Orange Theory studios and cycling studios have been particularly popular places to sell Tatu as people are paying attention to health more and more. And Mindful Proteins is right there to serve them as their mission is to create a family of high-protein, functional foods and beverages made from healthy and simple ingredients. So the vision is for many lines of healthful food products for people seeking that healthy lifestyle. Tatu is the first and appeals to the active person because of the high protein content. At 15 grams per can, each can delivers about one-third of the daily recommended amount and it's the protein, especially right after a workout, that restores muscle growth, helps prevent soreness and provides an energy lift after exercise. The word is getting out. BevNET, a Beverage Business Insight industry blog and highlighted by Fancy Foods as a new trending item. There is a mission behind the mission, as well. Mindful Proteins is sustainable at every turn, including the cans, packaging and a commitment to people, planet and profit. They track with the UN Sustainable Development Goals and you can check their progress on their website: https://mindfulproteins.com/. Also: IG @drinktatu. Tiktok is apparently live but Jacoba didn't know the handle at show time. Our hosts: Twitter - @sarahmasoni and @spicymarshall, Instagram - @masoniandmarshall.
It is our mission on this podcast - and the wider membership community from which it arose - to open doors and break down barriers, to bring forward the ideas and the actions of, and give voice to, the absolutely amazingly creative people who get that business is not usual, that the reality we have created for ourselves is misguided at best - and dangerously toxic at worst - and are doing their best to bring about change in a timescale that matters. This week, we spoke with Pooran Desai, whose scope and scale and grasp of the nature of the problem is unmatched. Pooran is a serial environmental entrepreneur and it felt like a breath of fresh air, to connect with someone who sees the bigger picture and is working to affect change at all levels. We explored topics that ranged from the building of Britain's first sustainable community at BedZED in London, to the nature of the meta-crisis and why measurement of single indices is one of the key factors in the emergency. On the way, we discusses the different natures of left and right brain thinking and how they apply to databases (and why databases are so critical to the way that business and so politics works in the world), the evolution of sustainable development goals (and why those started out well but have become yet another way of greenwashing business in its endless drive for profit), the nature of reality and how Daoist meditation can give us insights into our own delusions…and ways we could save the NHS 80% of its costs. This was a hard-hitting conversation. We didn't mince words or step around ideas. I found it exhilarating, enlightening and inspiring and hope you do to. Bio: Pooran Desai has been a neuroscientist, a property developer, and a technology entrepreneur, but all of it has been in service to a regenerative future. In 1994, he co-founded one of the world's first sustainability organisations, Bioregional which is responsible for setting-up enterprises in sustainable forestry, organic farming, recycling and real estate development.He assembled a wealth of environmental and sustainable talent to create the UK's first zero-carbon urban eco-village, BedZED, which was completed in 2002. In 2004, he was awarded an OBE for services to sustainability - in the days when the word still meant something seriously worthwhile. Pooran led Bioregional's One Planet Living® initiative for 18 years, leading teams that created sustainability strategies in 30 countries creating a set of principles that served as inspiration for the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDG's). Pooran is author of OnePlanet Communities: A Real-Life Guide for Sustainable Living, and is a trustee of the Design Council, supporting their 'Design for Planet' mission.In 2019, Pooran founded OnePlanet, to create a software suite that helps people, companies, policy makers shift to networked thinking - to let go of the constraints of consensus reality and the linear thinking that got us into this mess, and move towards systemic thinking that might get us out of it.

#plugintodevin - Your Mark on the World with Devin Thorpe
Devin: What do you see as your superpower?Tevin: What I would say is empathy. I'd probably say I feel that I'm an empathetic person.“My personal mission is literally to build a better world for us all,” says British podcast host Tevin Kittoe. “1000 Voices is an avenue that I'm using right now.”Tevin's goal is to feature 1,000 Black British changemakers on the show. Reminding me that the people he wants to highlight are not homogenous, he said:I'm trying to make it as diverse as possible. So to get people from all sorts of different backgrounds, people in all different industries, from all different growing up in different asset areas, their from class or social standing—very diverse people to come and to tell their stories of change.He wants to give them a place to “come and talk about how they're driving change in their places of work, how they're driving change in their business, how they drive and change in their communities and so forth.”While the goal is to host 1,000 Black Britons, his vision is to “build a more equitable and better UK and a better world for us all.” He says, “I'm a strong, strong believer that until every group, every marginalized group is good, nobody really is good.”Tevin highlights some of the racial disparities in Brittain—which may sound familiar to Americans. Maternal mortality, he notes, is four or five times worse for Black women in the UK. Black children are more likely to be excluded from school; police tactics feature racial disparities, and criminal sentencing for Black Britons is disproportionate for similar crimes.Tevin is proud of the guests he's featured, including Jamelia, a famous singer in the UK. He recapped the highlights of the interview:I usually try and encourage people to do is to come and just keep it real and to be as normal as they feel comfortable being. And in that interview, she was so, so open. I loved it because you get to see a different side of someone. You see her on TV singing and doing what she's doing, but you don't always necessarily get to see what she's like behind the cameras, what she's like in her own personal life.That was so good because she really, really opened up and we spoke about some challenges that she's been through in her personal life. We spoke about her music journey, some of the highlights, some of the low points. Definitely a very memorable conversation.He also featured Natalie Campbell, the founder and CEO of Belu Water, a social enterprise selling filtered, flavored and sparkling waters with a social mission built around three Sustainable Development Goals.Of Natalie, Tevin says, “She has this very, very sort of dogged sense of self-belief, this really, really strong sense of I can do whatever I put my mind to.”As we recorded this episode last month, Tevin had published 42 interviews. “One common denominator between all of them is that they're vulnerable to some degree. They open up, and they share pieces from their own story.”Tevin explains why he sees vulnerability as a superpower:Most people kind of be vulnerable to friends and family around them, let alone to the whole world put out on social media. But I've found that it's a superpower in some way, shape or form. It's so inspiring to hear someone really talk about what's going on in the deepest crevices of their heart, what's been going on in the deepest depths of their mind, the crazy dark thoughts that they've had, how they've overcome, if they've even overcome it, they're still battling against it. But through all of that, how they're driving change through their work and incredibly inspiring from a load of people, I've spoken to.As an effective podcast host, he leverages his superpower: empathy.How to Develop Empathy As a SuperpowerTevin reflected on an experience where he engaged his empathy on a genuinely personal level:I remember one time that I was with, well, my wife and I were—back there, my girlfriend—and we were out in Oxford Street. So south central London, if you listen and you know London very well. There was a woman who came up to me and asked me—what she asked me for, I can't remember. She asked me for something. I can't remember. But we struck up a little conversation. She didn't look very well. I try not to judge a book by its cover. I don't really like doing that. But you could tell she was something was off with her. She was troubled in some way, shape or form, but we struck up a conversation. Then I just came to realize that she had moved over to the UK not long ago, had been lied to. She thought she was coming to work instead she was just being lied to. She's homeless, and she's got children, which I thought was nuts. So, I remember we took her to a shop, we got some food bought, gave her a little money so she can buy some clothes for her children, and then just try to give her some numbers she could call this number. She had a phone. “Call this number, call them. They'll be able to help you.”Tevin helped a woman countless people had ignored that day. He engaged his empathy.He says, “it can be learned.”“The first step is just education and learning more about other groups of people outside of your own circle,” Tevin says. “I think it's a dangerous thing to only hang around and talk to people who look like you, who come from the same background as you, and just have the exact same shared experiences as you.”“Be curious. Find out more about everything in this big, vast world that we live in,” he says.By following Tevin's example and advice, you can make empathy a superpower that enables you to do more good in the world.

SummaryHow easily could you prove that you are, indeed, you? For most of you, it would be no sweat. In fact, you've probably done it hundreds of times. As a result, you can do things like get a bank account, rent a car, or buy an apartment.In much of the world, proof is harder to come by. Many people don't have a way to prove things like their income or identity. And yet companies that rely on these workers claim to have sustainable supply chains while leaving behind the people who make them possible.My guest, Ashish Gadnis, runs BanQu, a blockchain company working to make supply chains transparent and give access to proof for 100 million people so they can escape from poverty. About Our GuestAshish Gadnis is the co-founder of BanQu, the first ever blockchain supply chain and economic identity platform for refugees and people in extreme poverty.Growing up in poverty in Bombay, Ashish never forgot how it felt to stand in food lines to survive. He went on to build a successful career as a serial entrepreneur, serving as founder and CEO of multiple technology startups. In 2012, he sold his last tech company to a multi-billion-dollar consulting firm and soon after, BanQu was born.In addition to his role at BanQu, Ashish is also a senior strategic advisor to the United Nations on the Sustainable Development Goals 2030 agenda.(Adapted from https://sustainablebrands.com/is/ashish-gadnis)Useful LinksBanQu: https://www.banqu.co/Ashish's TEDx Talk, "Do You Know the Farmer?": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PBKOzJPazNMFollow Ashish on Twitter: https://twitter.com/agadnisFollow Ashish on LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/ashishgadnis/Solvay Uses Blockchain Software: https://www.foodingredientsfirst.com/news/solvay-utilizes-banqus-blockchain-software-to-secure-guar-supply-chain-and-promote-farmers-digital-autonomy.htmlPleasant Pictures MusicJoin the Pleasant Pictures Music Club to get unlimited access to high-quality, royalty-free music for all of your projects.

Janelle Kellman, Esq. is the Mayor of Sausalito, CA. In our conversation, we discuss Janelle's path from private practice as an environmental attorney in San Francisco to launching a successful e-commerce company and launching the Center for Sea Rise Solutions in 2021 to support the localization of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals. Janelle's passion for teamwork was ignited and nurtured by a lifetime of sports including playing two Division I sports at Yale. Janelle says, “Sports taught me hard work, collaboration and team work”. Janelle grew up in a small coal mining town in Pennsylvania. When Janelle's mom developed asthma, Janelle became passionate about the environment and about working to find the balance between how we live in the natural environment. Janelle credits her father's volunteering and involvement with community organizations as an early inspiration. The Jewish philosophy of Tikkum Olam (Repair of the world) has also guided Janelle's motivation for environmental work and public service. Listen in to hear why Janelle recommends people have a yes mindset, why removing expectations is the key to happiness and why the Japanese concept of ikigai is the recipe for success.

We are living with a global epidemic of injustice, but we've been choosing to ignore it. More than 25 years ago, Vivek Maru told his grandmother that he wanted to go to law school. “Grandma didn't pause,” he recounted. “She said to me, ‘Lawyer is liar.’” Though he went on to fulfill that desire, Vivek soon realized that his grandmother wasn’t entirely wrong. Vivek came to see that “something about law and lawyers has gone wrong.” Law is “supposed to be the language we use to translate our dreams about justice into living institutions that hold us together” – to honor the dignity of everyone, strong or weak. But as he told an audience on the TEDGlobal stage in 2017, lawyers are not only expensive and out of reach for most – worse, “our profession has shrouded law in a cloak of complexity. Law is like riot gear on a police officer. It's intimidating and impenetrable, and it's hard to tell there's something human underneath.” In 2011, Vivek founded Namati to demystify the law, facilitate global grassroots-led systems change, and to grow the movement for legal empowerment around the world. Namati and its partners have built cadres of grassroots legal advocates in eight countries. The advocates have worked with more than 65,000 people to protect community lands, enforce environmental law, and secure basic rights to health care and citizenship. Globally, Namati convenes the Legal Empowerment Network, made up of more than 3,000 groups from over 170 countries who are learning from one another and collaborating on common challenges. This community successfully advocated for the inclusion of justice in the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals, and for the creation of the Legal Empowerment Fund, with a goal of putting $100 million into grassroots justice efforts worldwide. Though he nearly dropped out of law school after his first year because the law felt disconnected from the problems of ordinary people he had encountered in rural villages the year earlier, Vivek stuck with it and moved to Sierra Leone soon after he graduated, just after the end of a brutal 11-year civil war. Several years before Namati, he co-founded an organization called Timap (which means “stand up”) to help rural Sierra Leoneans address injustice and hold government accountable. Realizing that a conventional legal aid model would have been unworkable, as there were only 100 lawyers in Sierra Leone (more than 90 of which were in the capital rather than in rural areas), he instead focused on training a frontline of community paralegals in basic law and in tools like mediation, advocacy, education, and organizing. Just like a health care system relies on nurses, midwives, and community health workers in addition to physicians, he saw that justice required community paralegals (sometimes called “barefoot lawyers”) to serve as a bridge to serve the legal needs of communities and “to turn law from an abstraction or a threat into something that every single person can understand, use and shape.” As he later recounted, “We found that paralegals are often able to squeeze justice out of a broken system: stop a school master from beating children; negotiate child support payments from a derelict father; persuade the water authority to repair a well. In exceptionally intractable cases, as when a mining company in the southern province damaged six villages’ land and abandoned the region without paying compensation, a tiny corps of lawyers can resort to litigation and higher-level advocacy to obtain a remedy.” More significantly, he realized: Paralegals are from the communities they serve. They demystify law, break it down into simple terms, and then they help people look for a solution. They don't focus on the courts alone. They look everywhere: ministry departments, local government, an ombudsman's office. Lawyers sometimes say to their clients, "I'll handle it for you. I've got you." Paralegals have a different message, not "I'm going to solve it for you," but "We're going to solve it together, and in the process, we're both going to grow." And case by case and story by story, community paralegals help paint a portrait of the system as a whole, which can serve as the basis for systemic change efforts in laws and policy. “This is a different way of approaching reform. This is not a consultant flying into Myanmar with a template he's going to cut and paste from Macedonia, and this is not an angry tweet. This is about growing reforms from the experience of ordinary people trying to make the rules and systems work,” Vivek says. It’s ultimately “about forging a deeper version of democracy in which we the people, we don't just cast ballots every few years, we take part daily in the rules and institutions that hold us together, in which everyone, even the least powerful, can know law, use law and shape law.” Vivek was named a Social Entrepreneur of the Year by the World Economic Forum, a “legal rebel” by the American Bar Association, and an Ashoka Fellow. He received the Pioneer Award from the North American South Asian Bar Association in 2008. He, Namati, and the Global Legal Empowerment Network received the Skoll Award for Social Entrepreneurship in 2016. He graduated from Harvard College, magna cum laude, and Yale Law School. His undergraduate thesis was called Mohandas, Martin, and Malcolm on Violence, Culture, and Meaning. Prior to starting Namati, he served as senior counsel in the Justice Reform Group of the World Bank. Vivek is co-author of Community Paralegals and the Pursuit of Justice (Cambridge University Press). His TED talk, “How to Put the Power of Law in People’s Hands,” has been viewed over a million times. He lives with his family in Washington, DC., and though he travels a lot, he tries to spend time in a forest or other natural place every week, wherever he is. Vivek studies capoeira, an Afro-Brazilian martial art that mixes dance with fighting techniques as a creative form of resistance, with Dale Marcelin at Universal Capoeira Angola Center. “There’s a mischievousness and soulfulness even though you’re engaging in a life-and-death struggle,” Maru says. “I like its lesson of smiling in the face of danger.” He is also deeply influenced by his Jain spiritual background and Gandhian principles. He is interested in a Jainism that balances an inward turn with an engagement in the outer world, citing a Jain monk who said “The test of true spirituality is in practice, not isolation . . . there is a need to strike the right balance between internal and external development.” Join us in conversation with this exceptional leader and warrior for justice!

On today's episode, we will be discussing the intersection of space science, climate change and policy. How can space technology and geospatial data improve our ability to tackle the daunting environmental challenges we see before us? And what does a positive and integrated Earth-Space future look like? We'll cover all of this and more.On today's show we are joined by Dr. Raha Hakimdavar.Dr. Hakimdavar is the Director of Space Sciences at Ball Aerospace, where she develops civil space business strategy and leads engagements with the government and broader space sciences community. Previously, Dr. Hakimdavar served as a hydrologist and acting national program lead in remote sensing and geospatial analysis research at the USDA Forest Service, where she developed innovative approaches to manage forest and aquatic resources in the United States and internationally. She led research on the integration of space data into the UN Sustainable Development Goals and developed a whole of government framework for a global hydrology model to assess water risk during her Presidential Management Fellowship appointment at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. Dr. Hakimdavar has consulted for UN Environment and the World Bank in the Caribbean and Latin America, notably helping to establish the first remote hydro-meteorological network for disaster risk reduction, agroforestry, and hydropower development in the South Department of Haiti.

My guest is Robin Landa, who holds the title of Distinguished Professor at Michael Graves College of Kean University in Union, New Jersey. She's also a “creativity guru” who advocates for industry inclusion and equity, and provides scholarships for meritorious students or students in need. Robin's expertise is in creative advertising, branding, graphic design, and social media. Her new book, just published in November, is called The New Art of Ideas: Unlock Your Creative Potential. This is a followup conversation to episode 58 last summer, and again she was a joy to talk to and a font of knowledge. We talk about her new ideas framework, solving the UN's 17 Sustainable Development Goals, and how to make the best-shaped pasta.
Happy new year, everyone. Hope you are having a great start to the year. Back to podcasting after the much-needed break!Today, I am speaking with Dr. Argyro Kavvada, who is the program manager at NASA's Earth Sciences Division for their Sustainable Development Goals initiative, essentially focusing on how to translate Earth observation for sustainable development.It is an area I have always been fascinated about not just for the obvious reasons, but also because it focuses on converting EO to real value, until the last-mile impact. Argyro is a renowned expert in the area of using EO for sustainable development, working with several organisations around the world and helping countries monitor their SDGs using EO. She was also the lead editor for a book published recently on this subject.In this episode, Argyro and I discuss her story, her work at NASA, the use of Earth observation for tracking the SDGs and some examples, the challenges of converting EO data into impact, whether we are exploiting the full potential of EO for policymaking and more.And now I bring you, Argyro Kavvada.---Argyro's Profile: https://appliedsciences.nasa.gov/about/our-team/argyro-kavvadaArgyro's Book: https://www.wiley.com/en-us/Earth+Observation+Applications+and+Global+Policy+Frameworks-p-9781119536710Argyro's LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/argyro-kavvada-ph-d-0470a571/Argyro's Twitter: https://twitter.com/argie_kavvada---01:13: Argie's story and work at NASA07:16: What are the Sustainable Development Goals?10:19: Examples of use in Earth observation for SDGs18:36: Challenges of converting data into impact23:10: Were the SDGs created understanding the capabilities of EO?29:31: An overview of a book on the subject that Argie co-edited: "Earth Observation Applications and Global Policy Frameworks"32:29: Are we exploiting the full potential of EO for policymaking?36:55: State of EO and how it effects sustainable development initiatives39:54: What are we not talking about enough and what can we do better?43:35: Creating an inclusive, diverse future of EO---
The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 106 Did you know the focus in education is about to change again? It is. While we've rightly been focused on fighting CRT, Queer Theory, SEL, DEI, and all manner of issues in the schools to protect our kids, a big shift has been being prepared and is likely to be about to launch. Schools in the coming year or two are very likely to lurch into direct instruction into activism to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations Agenda 2030. The documentation from entities like the WEF and UNESCO already makes this clear, but in this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, host James Lindsay goes through a document from the NEA Foundation, the charitable arm of the largest national teachers union, to show that they not only have these plans but have adopted well-developed curriculum guides to start distributing to teachers and school administrators, right down to detailed lessons on topics like hunger and starvation in kindergarten. These plans will, of course, be UN and World Economic Forum compliant, as they tell us themselves. Join James in this episode to get a preview of the next big fight in education.

A new narrative to ban gas stoves was pushed suddenly and simultaneously by several major news outlets, leftist politicians, and public figures. Almost immediately, New York Governor Kathleen Hochul announced that New York would begin forbidding gas stoves in new buildings, and other states are weighing on whether to follow as well. Yet, it appears the narrative has a deeper agenda, potentially tied to the Green New Deal and the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations. Meanwhile, airlines went down across the United States after an alleged system error. The Federal Aviation Administration has just begun releasing data on what took place, and public attention is now shifting to Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, who is facing criticism for potential bad decisions that led to the holiday travel crisis. In this live Q&A with Crossroads host Joshua Philipp, we'll discuss these stories and others and answer questions from the audience. ⭕️ Stay up-to-date with Josh with the Crossroads NEWSLETTER

In this episode of the Discomfort Practice, I talk with political scientist and economist Pilar Garrido. We chat about her experience leading a sustainable economic development policy in Costa Rica for a green and inclusive economy, as well as designing innovative financial instruments for critical public investment projects. We will also get into what adaptation for climate change is. Pilar leads with a human touch, transforming our ideas of what a leader should be. Pilar has been a key figure, using her government minister role to steer Costa Rica's ambition to be one of the five countries piloting the Sustainable Development Goals. SDG's were launched by the United Nations in 2015. Their aim is to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that by 2030: all people enjoy peace and prosperity. So, buckle yourself in for this episode and be inspired by a politician who governs with both heart and strength. She has served as Chief of Staff, Deputy Minister, Minister of Planning and Policy, Technical Secretary of the Sustainable Development Goals in Costa Rica and as Costa Rica's co-ordinator of the Economic cabinet. A woman of many talents! This is an inspiring episode, so tune in for Pilar's positive story and so much more. Enjoy!

Across the front of our website, in big bold letters, is our calling card: “Science for people who give a shit.”You may have seen it and immediately thought “That's me!” or “You sir, are a child.” Either reaction is well and great. We're not for everybody.You're here, though, so let's assume you're on board with the whole idea. However you identified with that tagline, you may have also asked yourself what it means, in practice. And that's a good question because while the mantra isn't changing, I'm more focused than ever on putting it into practice for me, and you. To Do Better Better requires trust in one another. That we care, that we'll step up when it counts, that we won't pull the ladder up after us. It requires a radical reorientation of our assumptions and expectations, to put into practice our values, to show up for one another -- together whenever we can, and when we're most alone -- to understand 1% better every day doesn't feel very different today -- if anything, it can feel like nowhere near enough -- but in three hundred and sixty-five days, much less by 2035 or 2050, at the rate of 1% a day, together, we can build something entirely new and fucking awesome. That's compound action. That's what we're about. That's science for people who give a shit.Here's What You Can Do:Mutual aid is probably the most effective way to help the folks around you.

Hi #smartcommunity friends! Welcome to the Summer Series here on the Smart Community Podcast. As you know, we're taking a little break from new content over the Australian summer holidays, and instead we are sharing the replays of a few of our all time favourite episodes. This week we're sharing my interview with Jess Coldrey, from way back in Episode 258, which was released in October 2021. In this episode of the Smart Community Podcast I have a fascinating talk with Jess Coldrey about how art can shape the future of Smart Communities. Jess is a human geographer and creative technology artist and through her work, aims to harness the under-utilised potential of infrastructure to address social and environmental needs. Jess tells us about her varied and interesting background, her studies in Visual Arts and Human Geography, her current work and latest venture heading to England to study humanitarian engineering, before telling us about her passion for futurism and how societies progress in a socially different way. Jess and I discuss how her work fits into the Smart Communities space, how she has used her creative and collaborative skills in past projects to bring in new ways of thinking and ideas, how her training has helped give a different perspective and what a Smart Community is to her. Jess then shares with us some of the projects she has been working on as well as some of her achievements before we discuss how art can trigger emotional responses allowing people to think differently and boldly about the future of communities, how art galleries and libraries could potentially be the hub of communities and the value that could bring. We finish our chat discussing the emerging trends of the post Covid world and the different requirements communities will need in future. Since we recorded this interview, Jess has been up to a lot! She was named Top 50 Women in Engineering in the UK; she did an art residency in France raising awareness of endometriosis; she obtained her MSc in England as a John Monash Scholar, focusing on drone tree planting; she exhibited a piece in the Tate Britain, which houses the UK's national collection of art; spoke on the radio about inspiring and retaining women in engineering; created a series of 3D scanned postcards to encourage environmental volunteering and recently she's been to India as a United Nations UNLEASH Global Talent to work in international teams prototyping technological solutions to the Sustainable Development Goals. She's got some exciting projects on the horizon too, including leading a drone tree planting project with AirSeed/RedCross, responding to landslides and flooding in Lismore here in Australia, and she's doing an art residency at King's College London Engineering, working with robotics and photography to help shape a creative identity for the new department, and understand 'what inspires us' as engineers to share with the world and encourage others into the profession. We will be sure to get Jess back on the show in future for a full update about what she has been up to since we recorded this episode and how our thinking has progressed since our conversation. But in the meantime, as always we hope you enjoy listening to this episode as much as we enjoyed making it!

The WAB podcast is back this week to discuss Units of Inquiry (UOI), a key feature of the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Program (PYP). A Unit of Inquiry is a transdisciplinary learning unit where students do an in-depth exploration of a concept for six to eight weeks and are challenged to question and investigate real-world issues. Organized around one of six themes that evolve in complexity each year, Units of Inquiry at WAB are linked to the Sustainable Development Goals, which act as a framework for structuring the units. Joining us in this week's podcast to help us unpack this topic is Christine Bodt, a Grade 5 teacher who has been with WAB for seven years, along with Giulia and Amalia, two of our Grade 5 students. In our conversation, Christine breaks down how Units of Inquiry are taught, why it's such a powerful teaching method, and how it avoids siloed teaching and instead facilitates authentic learning. Giulia and Amalia reflect on some of the topics they've covered this year before sharing what they're currently working on. We also cover the PYP exhibition that is coming and why it's such an exciting time for students, parents, and teachers alike.
Struggling to create the life you truly (like, truly) desire?I'm here to let you in on a big secret…it might be because you set your targets and never explore and get “real” about how you got where you currently are and what it will take to get where you desire. I've taken every personal development workshop possible and what I am aware of is when I started getting “real” about where I am and “how” I got there, then I was really truly able to create the plan and map to get to where I truly desired. In this podcast I share with you my 3 favorite (simple) questions that I ask every year (and every quarter) to start the journey of discovering where I am and how the heck I got here. Here they are the 3 questions to start this process: What is one word to describe your 2022 year? What worked for you in 2022?What did not work for you in 2022? As the year is ending, I like to look back at the good, the bad, the ugly and the beautiful… all of it comes to mind. The past is there to guide you as we continue to look forward to the future. This might not make sense now, I totally get it.As you listen to this episode I will go through the different ways that help me get through ending my year feeling optimistic.

It's the end of the year, and we're jumping headfirst into 2023. First, we introduce a soon-to-be familiar face: our new president, Alvaro Lario, who talks about his plans for IFAD. We then turn to Satu Santala, Associate Vice-President of the External Relations and Governance Department at IFAD, who talks to us about the year ahead and the agency's priorities for the upcoming funding cycle. She also tells us about the Global Donor Platform for Rural Development, a crucial network of donors focusing on one of the UN's 17 Sustainable Development Goals: zero hunger. Earlier this year we spoke to some of these donors about the platform, and now we revisit these conversations to hear about the issues that matter the most to them. We take a look at the problem of gender-based violence as the Global 16 Days Campaign against GBV concludes. We talk to a gender expert about the impact of violence against women at the community level, and the ways we can address it.

What could we accomplish if borders did not exist? Meet Anthony and Saundarya. They are high schoolers with a keen interest in giving back, and their dedication and commitment to service spans various local and global communities. Anthony lives in Arizona. Saundarya lives in India. They come from different cultures and countries, but they believe that borders are not obstacles, challenges, or hindrances to their work with Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The borders that, for some, would seem to separate the two youth are actually differences that have helped bring them closer together. Tune in to listen to their stories and the advice they have for other youth around the globe who are ready to take action in their communities. ...Anthony Dyjak is the president and founder of his high school's UNA chapter. He has competed in many speech and debate competitions and is the Treasurer for his school's Amnesty International organization.

Rania Hoteit is a multi-award-winning serial entrepreneur and global impact leader. As Founder and former CEO of ID4A Technologies, Rania built a global company that is committed to the UN Sustainable Development Goals. ID4A Technologies has been revolutionizing the manufacturing processes while creating significant environmental, economic and social impact. Under Rania's leadership, ID4A was recognized by the White House Office of Science and Technology for “Fostering The Development of Advanced Manufacturing in the US and The World”; ranked on Entrepreneur 360's list of the “Best Entrepreneurial Companies in America”; included in the Inc. 5000 List of “America's Fastest Growing Private Companies”; received the Real Leaders “100 Top Impact Companies” Award; and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's 2021 Citizens Awards for "Best Economic Opportunity and Empowerment Program.” In this episode we discuss: The importance of diversity at the highest level of an organization The missing narrative of the positive impact artificial intelligence can have on employment Why Modern Day Slavery persists in global supply chains The role of dignity and accountability in leadership Key Takeaways: An underlying theme throughout this discussion was the importance of training and upskilling. This means investing in individuals. That individual employee investment is also an investment in the future of your organization. But this investment shouldn't be limited to equipping individuals to take on new roles as technology shifts what skills are required and in demand. It also needs to be extended in ways that will enable your organization to achieve diversity across seniority levels. As the saying goes “a rising tide lifts all ships”, but what history has blatantly taught us is that systemic biases are making it so only some ships rise with the tide. To get a different outcome, a different approach is required. Your values shape your priorities, and your priorities shape your corporate culture. Take a look at your culture. What are the values and priorities that drive it? If you say “diversity and inclusion” is a core part of your organization, but you don't see diversity and inclusion reflected in the culture and across senior leadership, then it's clearly not a value or a priority. If something truly matters to your senior leaders, they'll prioritize it and figure out a way to make it happen. If it's not reflected in the culture, then it's just lip service. Have you heard the saying that you're the average of the five people you spend the most time with? This saying communicates how we absorb the norms of those around us, so we should be intentional about who we choose to spend our time with. The same could be said for organizations. Think about the partners up and down your supply chain. Assume that their norms will rub off on your workforce, because they will. Do these partners meet the standards that you believe in for your company? Are you stronger together, helping each other become more transparent and ethical businesses? Or, are you enabling practices to continue that you don't agree with? Complicity means accountability. Who we choose to partner with is a vote for what we approve of. Each of us is accountable for our choices, so make them wisely.
