    Post-elections pause and an invitation to reach out and listen.

    In this very short episode following the European elections, we offer a pause to reflect on the divisions revealed by the elections and invite you to join us for a short exercise. While the knee-jerk reaction might be to seek distance from 'the other side', could that ultimately lead to deeper polarisation? In this special episode, we introduce a brief exercise based on the work of Emma Stenström (https://www.hhs.se/en/person/?personId=3831033)that offers a way to reach out and consider 'other' opinions with a view to building bridges and fostering understanding. For more information on this exercise: https://www.hhs.se/en/research/sweden-through-the-crisis/bubble-hopping/We hope you find this exercise useful and appreciate the moment to pause amidst the frantic news coverage.

    We only need to walk down a street, open a browser or turn on the TV to understand that we are being addressed as consumers. But what if behind that narrative, there were another waiting to step into the limelight and reshape the communities and countries in which we live?Jon Alexander, author or Citizens, Why the Key to Fixing Everything Is All of Us, argues that there is. He calls it the citizen story. Tamsin Walker sat down with Jon Alexander to talk about exactly what that is, what can happen when even a small group of people decide to take matters into their own hands, and how some leaders are also daring to dabble with more participatory forms of co-existence. Jon started his professional life in an advertising agency in London, but a decade in, had come to see that treating citizens as eternal consumers was undermining their inherent power as individuals. He returned to university and co-founded the New Citizenship Project (https://www.newcitizenproject.com/), a strategy and innovation consultancy operating on the belief that given the right opportunity, people can and will shape the things that matter to them for the better. To date, NCP as it is known for short, has worked with the European Central Bank, the Guardian and many others to shift the story of the individual in society away from that of consumer to that of participatory citizen.Since publishing his book Citizens (https://www.jonalexander.net/) in 2022, he has met with and heard from people all across the world, who he says are finding one another, organising together, and stepping into whatever power they have to shape the future for the better.About the Inner Green Deal The Inner Green Dea (https://innergreendeal.com/#_blank)l is a non-profit organisation based in Cologne and Brussels with a growing community around the world.

    Learning from our rivers | with Li An Phoa | S4E4

    We talk to Li An Phoa, founder of the charity Drinkable Rivers about her work towards a world with waterways so clean that we can sip from their banks. Her mission started in 2005 when she canoed the full length of the Rupert river in Canada, drinking fresh water from it as she went. When she returned there just three years later, she was met with a different picture. The water had been polluted as a result of dams and mining. Fish were dying and local people were falling ill. Seeing the ecosystem thrown out of balance, Li An realised that being able to drink from a river was an indicator of healthy living. She now raises awareness and mobilise people to take action through river walks, citizen science and community building, like Mayors for Drinkable Rivers, a group that emerged from her 2018 walk along the River Meuse. That 1000-kilometer source-to-sea walk took her through France, Belgium and the Netherlands. Most recently, she embarked on 500 kilometre walk along the river Thames, starting at its source in the Cotswolds and ending four weeks later at the mouth of the North Sea. She has also co-authored a book ‘Drinkable Rivers: How the River Became My Teacher’Inner Green Deal host Tamsin Walker sat down with Li An to talk about how we can learn to use rivers as a marker for a healthy society, how we can reconnect with the water that keeps us alive and with each other to keep it clean.

    Should natural entities have rights? | with Mihnea Tănăsescu | S4E1

    In a world where exploitation of natural resources is commonplace, the idea of granting rights to entities such as rivers is as abstract as essential.   In this month's episode, we explore the rights of nature with Mihnea Tănăsescu, a political ecologist who has spent many years immersed in the issue.   He is a research professor at the University of Mons in Belgium. His current work focuses on the concept of political representation and the politics of ecological restoration and his most recent books are Understanding the Rights of Nature (https://www.transcript-verlag.de/978-3-8376-5431-8/understanding-the-rights-of-nature/.) and Ecocene Politics (https://www.openbookpublishers.com/books/10.11647/obp.0274). The latter was included in the 2023 Choice Review's Outstanding Academic Title list.  Inner Green Deal host Tamsin Walker spoke to Mihnea about the arguments for and against granting rights to nature, where they have already been seen as a success and whether they can foster a new relationship between humans and the natural world around us.  If you enjoyed this episode, please consider subscribing to our podcast or leaving a review.

    The path to inner and outer development | With Jan Artem Henriksson of the IDGs | S3E5

    We are excited to share the inspiring story of Jan Artem Henriksson, Executive Director of the Inner Development Goals. He talks about his Ukrainian roots, the role of inner development in his life and the immense resonance of the Inner Development Goals.    Jan is a man who wears many different hats. Besides co-founding two companies, he is a Stockholm School of Economics Executive Education faculty member and a Senior Fellow with the Flourishing Network, part of Harvard University's Human Flourishing Program.     These days he is perhaps best known as the Executive Director of the Inner Development Goals (IDGs) Initiative. Launched in 2020, the IDGs provide organisations and even countries with an open source inner development framework to support collective efforts to reach the UN's sustainable development goals, the SDGs.      In this episode of the podcast, our new host Tamsin Walker spoke to Jan about the path to his current role, what defines personal inner development and how that can make a difference to and in the world around us. About the Inner Development Goals The Inner Development Goals (IDGs) is a non-profit and open-source initiative to promote inner development to accelerate the SDGs. At the core of its work lies a simple communication tool summarising 23 important inner skills and qualities, which was derived through consultation with over 4000 scientists, practitioners and other experts. The IDGs organisation has a strong following, with over 300 hubs around the world and many partners. This includes sustainability professionals, large systemic organisations (e.g. UNDP), and even countries (e.g. Costa Rica). At the Inner Green Deal we collaborate closely and together we developed and delivered the first Global Leadership for Sustainable Development programme based on the IDG framework. More information about the Inner Development Goals can be found here: https://www.innerdevelopmentgoals.org/. Are you interested to join the IDG's summit taking place on October 11-12 of 2023?

    Learning from our rivers | with Li An Phoa | S4E4

    We talk to Li An Phoa, founder of the charity Drinkable Rivers about her work towards a world with waterways so clean that we can sip from their banks. Her mission started in 2005 when she canoed the full length of the Rupert river in Canada, drinking fresh water from it as she went. When she returned there just three years later, she was met with a different picture. The water had been polluted as a result of dams and mining. Fish were dying and local people were falling ill. Seeing the ecosystem thrown out of balance, Li An realised that being able to drink from a river was an indicator of healthy living. She now raises awareness and mobilise people to take action through river walks, citizen science and community building, like Mayors for Drinkable Rivers, a group that emerged from her 2018 walk along the River Meuse. That 1000-kilometer source-to-sea walk took her through France, Belgium and the Netherlands. Most recently, she embarked on 500 kilometre walk along the river Thames, starting at its source in the Cotswolds and ending four weeks later at the mouth of the North Sea. She has also co-authored a book ‘Drinkable Rivers: How the River Became My Teacher’Inner Green Deal host Tamsin Walker sat down with Li An to talk about how we can learn to use rivers as a marker for a healthy society, how we can reconnect with the water that keeps us alive and with each other to keep it clean.

    Should natural entities have rights? | with Mihnea Tănăsescu | S4E1

    In a world where exploitation of natural resources is commonplace, the idea of granting rights to entities such as rivers is as abstract as essential.   In this month's episode, we explore the rights of nature with Mihnea Tănăsescu, a political ecologist who has spent many years immersed in the issue.   He is a research professor at the University of Mons in Belgium. His current work focuses on the concept of political representation and the politics of ecological restoration and his most recent books are Understanding the Rights of Nature (https://www.transcript-verlag.de/978-3-8376-5431-8/understanding-the-rights-of-nature/.) and Ecocene Politics (https://www.openbookpublishers.com/books/10.11647/obp.0274). The latter was included in the 2023 Choice Review's Outstanding Academic Title list.  Inner Green Deal host Tamsin Walker spoke to Mihnea about the arguments for and against granting rights to nature, where they have already been seen as a success and whether they can foster a new relationship between humans and the natural world around us.  If you enjoyed this episode, please consider subscribing to our podcast or leaving a review.

    The path to inner and outer development | With Jan Artem Henriksson of the IDGs | S3E5

    We are excited to share the inspiring story of Jan Artem Henriksson, Executive Director of the Inner Development Goals. He talks about his Ukrainian roots, the role of inner development in his life and the immense resonance of the Inner Development Goals.    Jan is a man who wears many different hats. Besides co-founding two companies, he is a Stockholm School of Economics Executive Education faculty member and a Senior Fellow with the Flourishing Network, part of Harvard University's Human Flourishing Program.     These days he is perhaps best known as the Executive Director of the Inner Development Goals (IDGs) Initiative. Launched in 2020, the IDGs provide organisations and even countries with an open source inner development framework to support collective efforts to reach the UN's sustainable development goals, the SDGs.      In this episode of the podcast, our new host Tamsin Walker spoke to Jan about the path to his current role, what defines personal inner development and how that can make a difference to and in the world around us. About the Inner Development Goals The Inner Development Goals (IDGs) is a non-profit and open-source initiative to promote inner development to accelerate the SDGs. At the core of its work lies a simple communication tool summarising 23 important inner skills and qualities, which was derived through consultation with over 4000 scientists, practitioners and other experts. The IDGs organisation has a strong following, with over 300 hubs around the world and many partners. This includes sustainability professionals, large systemic organisations (e.g. UNDP), and even countries (e.g. Costa Rica). At the Inner Green Deal we collaborate closely and together we developed and delivered the first Global Leadership for Sustainable Development programme based on the IDG framework. More information about the Inner Development Goals can be found here: https://www.innerdevelopmentgoals.org/. Are you interested to join the IDG's summit taking place on October 11-12 of 2023?
