    The Climate Emergency with Jonathon Porritt

    The Climate Emergency with Jonathon Porritt

    With just 10 yrs left to change things, will you step up and save the World?
    Old Fox Young Fox talks to writer, environmental activist and former Director of Friends of the Earth Jonathon Porritt about the climate emergency and why against all the odds, there is still hope.
    We trace Jonathon's journey from the activist frontline, to a career in politics, then to founding Forum for the Future, where he saw progress in educating and partnering with the business community on the need to act regarding the climate.
    And we discuss his decision to now step back from Forum for the Future and to focus on doing what he can as Chancellor at Keele University and by a more direct role in supporting the next generation of climate activist.
    We cover a lot of ground and ask a lot of the tough questions facing our global community including what is the role of civil disobedience in activism? Should we feel guilty at not having done enough or is that energy better used in making small changes to help fight climate change?

    Subscribe now: The magical world of subscription services

    Want a new Mercedes but can’t afford to buy one? Why buy a CD when £10 a month gives you ‘000? Setting up a new online business but will limited funds? Have it all, Subscribe Now!!
    This episode of Old Fox Young Fox looks at the subscription economy. Joined by Toby Beresford of Veneficus, we explore how a move from owning to renting is transforming the landscape for both consumers and suppliers globally.
    Netflix, Spotify, Apple iCloud, Office 365 and Amazon Web Services are all examples of subscriptions and whether we realise it or not, we are consuming more products and services via subscription every day. In fact, 2020 saw huge growth in subscription services globally due in part to Covid-19 and our insatiable desire to try before we buy, get it now and always have the latest and greatest.
    What is surprising is how far the subscription model of pay as you go has reached with school uniforms, and even jet engines moving to this model.
    But how do subscriptions actually work? What are the benefits to businesses to moving to a subscription-based model and are they better or worse for us the consumer?

    An insider's guide to Covid-19 with Dr. Sam Shah

    An insider's guide to Covid-19 with Dr. Sam Shah

    This episode of Old Fox Young Fox features Dr. Sam Shah, a Global Digital Health Advisor and former Director of NHSX. We summarise what we know about Covid-19 so far and take a long, hard look at good, the bad and the ugly of the state of healthcare in the UK and globally.
    As we enter into a second northern hemisphere winter living with Covid-19 and all the concerns that brings, what have we learned about the virus and how to prevent it? Is our public healthcare service up to the task and are our Government helping or hindering the delivery of healthcare to those who need it most?
    Dr. Shah is outspoken, incredibly knowledgable and is passionate about the need for equal access to healthcare as a basic human right. He raises serious questions about the state of our Government and the former Management Consultants now lining the upper echelons of many public service departments.
    This is an episode not to be missed and one that echoes the experiences of many countries during this pandemic and during this current experiment in Populism in many nations.

    Transition Towns: Local experiment or global solution with Rob Hopkins

    Transition Towns: Local experiment or global solution with Rob Hopkins

    Rob Hopkins, author of From What is to What if and founder of The Transition Town Network explains to Old Fox Young Fox how communities around the world are coming together to make a difference.
    We discuss his book From What is to What if and the premise that drives it and how he found himself moving from teaching Permaculture to founding a global movement now spanning over 1,200 towns.
    This is inspiring stuff and speaks deeply firstly to the dire global situation we find ourselves in and importantly acts as a call to arms for us all to feel empowered to do something about it.
    Because together, we can just get more done.
