    Investing in the Next Generation with Korvi Rakshand

    Investing in the Next Generation with Korvi Rakshand

    In this episode,  we are delighted to welcome Korvi Rakshand, a visionary who has dedicated his career to investing in the next generation in Bangladesh. Together, we discuss how he built JAAGO, how to ensure educational is accessible to those from underprivileged backgrounds, and how we can build a culture of volunteerism.

    Korvi founded JAAGO Foundation in a small room with only 17 children back in 2007 with a dream of breaking the cycle of poverty through free, quality education for the most underprivileged young people in society. Korvi has expanded JAAGO over the years to now serve 3500 vulnerable children studying in 8 branches of JAAGO schools all over Bangladesh.

    Gidon Bromberg and his co-founders established EcoPeace Middle East in 1994 with the goal of uniting Israeli, Jordanian, and Palestinian environmentalists in their mission to put environmental issues on the peace process agenda and to create a regional response to water crises, ultimately furthering sustainable development and advancing peace in the region.

    Environmental Activism and the Good Society with Alex Muñoz Wilson

    Environmental Activism and the Good Society with Alex Muñoz Wilson

    Alex Muñoz Wilson, National Geographic's Pristine Seas Director for Latin America, delves into the world of environmental activism in this episode. We discuss important ocean policy changes in Chile, COP26 in Glasgow, and how to affect change as a member of civil society.
    In a world where extraction of resources and destructive fishing practices are the norm, how can we flip the script and encourage responsible stewardship of the natural world? How can we use the tools at our disposal, legal and maybe sometimes otherwise, to advocate for the environmental issues that matter most to us?

    Fostering Genuine Diversity and Inclusion in Society with Fadzi Whande of the OHCHR

    Fostering Genuine Diversity and Inclusion in Society with Fadzi Whande of the OHCHR

    Fadzi Whande is a multi-award-winning Global Diversity and Inclusion Strategist and Social Justice Advocate.  She is currently the Senior Programme Officer (Diversity and Inclusion Adviser), Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR).

    Everybody wants to belong. As we carve out our own space in the world, as we adapt to new and exciting situations, as we seek communities to call home — we want to feel included. If we ask you to think of a time when you genuinely felt included, or of a space where you feel like you could always be your authentic self — what do you think of? In this conversation, we examine what it means to create a genuinely diverse and inclusive society.

    A Credit Card for Climate Action with Mathias Wikström of Doconomy

    A Credit Card for Climate Action with Mathias Wikström of Doconomy

    Mathias Wikström, co-founder of  Swedish impact-tech start up Doconomy, seeks to rewrite the rules of finance and ensure sustainability is at its core. In the face of climate inaction, Doconomy empowers individuals to take responsibility for their own carbon footprints and to track their own consumption in a tangible manner — through a credit card.
    Hoping to transform the financial system into a tool for climate action, Doconomy has worked with MasterCard, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, and the Finnish bank Ålandsbanken to promote smarter, more sustainable consumption. This way, they are revolutionizing the way individuals think about their impact and transforming consumer behaviour.
