Cri de Cœur means “a cry from the heart; a heartfelt or sincere appeal." It’s a phrase that demonstrates the meaning of advocacy, which harnesses individual power to create shared awareness and collective action. This podcast focuses on how advocacy on climate can - and must - manifest within our own sphere of influence. In this series, Cambray Crozier interviews leaders - from chefs, to bankers, to polar explorers - who share their insights, experiences and reflections about their approach to advocacy: how they wield influence, build coalitions, communicate and share knowledge, and work to facilitate civic engagement. We take a close look at some of the personal skills needed to be effective in the role of a “change agent” so each of us can bring about actual positive change for sustainability. New episodes are released monthly!

    Paul Stout, @TalkingCities on TikTok

    To kick off season two, Cambray Crozier & Paul Stout talk about TikTok, and all the ways that creating spaces that prioritise people (not cars) can deliver meaningful solutions both to mitigate and adapt to climate change and improve daily life! They dive deep on urbanism, urban design and urban planning. Paul also gives a bit of insight into how advocates can harness the power of TikTok in their own outreach.

    On TikTok, @TalkingCities has more than 150,000 followers and 3 million–plus likes. Paul calls his work "an introduction to urban design, city planning, and architecture," an avenue for teens and adults who don't know urban planning exists to become aware of it and get inspired to explore further.

    Paul's Favorite Leaders
    Jane Jacobs, American-Canadian journalist, author, theorist, and activist who influenced urban studies, sociology, and economics. Her book The Death and Life of Great American Cities (1961) argued that "urban renewal" and "slum clearance" does not respect the needs of city-dwellers.Jacobs organized grassroots efforts to protect neighborhoods from urban renewal and slum clearance – in particular plans by Robert Moses to overhaul her own Greenwich Village neighborhood. She was instrumental in the eventual cancellation of the Lower Manhattan Expressway, which would have passed directly through an area of Manhattan that later became known as SoHo, as well as part of Little Italy and Chinatown.Anne Hidalgo, Mayor of Paris since 2014The 15-Minute City Project argues that everyone living in a city should have access to daily needs within a 15 minute walk or bike.  This idea was popularized by Paris mayor Anne Hidalgo and inspired by French-Colombian scientist Carlos Moreno.15-minute cities are built from a series of 5-minute neighborhoods, also known as complete communities or walkable neighborhoods. The concept has been described as a "return to a local way of life."
