What does it mean to live - and work - in harmony with your ethics, your values and your activism? What can we do to accelerate a culture shift towards a more regenerative paradigm, and...how do we do it whilst paying the bills?!
Exploring money and the economy, passion and burnout syndrome, activism and entrepreneurialism, The Regenerative Livelihood Podcast is setting sail and hoping to spark a unique conversation around how we - as activists and seekers of change - can tip the economy in our favour.
That's what this channel is all about. Starting with the movements I know about - such as permaculture and co-operatives in Britain - I hope to explore far and wide across the globe and span many different approaches to regenerative design and practice, finding unique and intriguing ways of making a regenerative livelihood at every turn.
Join me, it'll be a laugh.
