    19. Sowing the SEEDs of Change (with Lisa Bass)

    Today Jack is joined by Lisa Bass, the Director of Programmes and Operations for SEED Madagascar. The duo discuss the wonderful mystery which is Madagascar; the impacts of climate change; and the diverse portfolio of work that SEED undertakes, including their work with School Building & Bat Conservation. Perhaps most importantly however, Lisa shines a light on the impact of COVID-19 on the charity, and the ongoing food crisis. While the charity has had huge successes in combatting these issues, the fight continues and they need our support. Please listen, share what you learn, and consider donating to their emergency fund which is providing vital supplies to those in need.
