    Rathana Chea - ChangeMaker Chat - Diversity and Climate

    Rathana Chea - ChangeMaker Chat - Diversity and Climate

    There is a lot of talk about the need for diversity, but what does diversity actually mean? 
    In this conversation Rathana Chea shares how he has learnt how to value the power of difference and connection across his time in making social change, sharing insights from social movements while he was in school, to community organising, to working with Greenpeace International and now working to create the Multicultural Leadership Initiative as part of the Australian climate movement.
    This conversation cuts through the platitudes that often dominate “diversity talk”, responding to the language of awkward politeness with a practice of kindness and clarity about how to create space where people of colour can lead and thrive because they are driving movements that speak to their own needs and interests.
    For more on the Multicultural Leadership Initiative see HERE.
    You can follow Rathana on LinkedIn HERE.

    Tina Rothery - ChangeMaker Chat - Nanas against Fracking

    Tina Rothery - ChangeMaker Chat - Nanas against Fracking

    The UK’s Nana’s against Fracking are a grassroots movement that spread across regional UK communities to stop gas fracking. The movement was led by a legion of women who had never, or only at a distance, been involved in making change, but felt compelled to act when they found out about the catastrophic effects of fracking on the environment and community Tina and the Nanas were a magnificent example of people seeking and achieving ordinary hope - showing the kind of community power that lies in all of us.
    This episode is a ChangeMakers #UKSpecial.
    Nanas against Fracking take some inspiration from their sisters the Knitting Nanna’s in Australia! ChangeMakers produced an episode on gas extraction in the Northern Rivers that features these Nanas back in our first season, and you can find it on ACAST or on our website.
    You can find the UK Nanas on X/Twitter here @UK_Nanas and Tina Rothery @tinalouiseUK.

    Samuel Chu - ChangeMaker Chat - Anti-Authoritarianism

    Samuel Chu - ChangeMaker Chat - Anti-Authoritarianism

    How on earth can any of us challenge might of authoritarian government? Samuel Chu has been contesting government over-reach and human rights abuses in China, Russia, Belarus and more - and as a US citizen and community organiser has a refreshing take on how we can all contribute to a movement against authoritarianism.
    In this episode he explores how community organising has helped him think strategically about building democratic alliances across countries, and building democratic capacity everywhere.
    Samuel has previously been on ChangeMakers to talk about the Hong Kong Security Act in May 2020
    There is more information about Samuel on his website - https://www.samuelmchu.com/.

    Love and Power - ChangeMaker Chat - Ending Violence against Women

    Love and Power - ChangeMaker Chat - Ending Violence against Women

    While we know that too many women live with the ever-present threat of violence our societies seem to struggle with what to do about it. While we have refuges services, and at times the issue is raised in national debate, we seem unable to address the problem at its core.
    In the UK, Love and Power is a new organisation that is seeking to end vioelcne aganst women by putting women who have expeirenced domestic violence at the centre of the debate. Love and Power combines the insight and knowledge that comes from lived experience with the strategies of community organising to bring a new approach to an old problem.
    In this ChangeMaker Chat we talk with Charlotte Fischer and Martha Jephcott the founders of Love and Power. Marthe grew up in a violent household and brings her own experience of the limits of service provision to the movement, she combines this with Charlotte's experience as a community organiser to create a new kind of women's movement that seeks to show the public dimensions of women's expeirences as a way to find political solutions to the probelm of violence.
    You can find out more about love and power here - https://www.loveandpower.co.uk. You can follow them on socials - @loveandpowerorg for both X and instagram.

    Andrew Denton - ChangeMaker Chats - Laugh till you die

    Andrew Denton - ChangeMaker Chats - Laugh till you die

    If you are in Australia you probably know of Andrew Denton the comedian, but did you know he is also a highly successful changemaker? 
    In this chat Andrew shares his journey of a life that began in comedy, then ventured into long form interviews with the popular television show “Enough Rope”, then a decade ago took him to a decision to try and change the laws on Voluntary Assisted Dying.
    Andrew shares what it was like to come to social change as a novice - and to learn the many steps of how to make powerful change with others. And despite the constant theme of death - the chat is also pretty funny.
