    Pushing Practice 1: Reciprocity in Design

    I’m your host Kelly Ann McKercher, author of Beyond Sticky Notes: Doing Co-design for Real. In this podcast we speak with Euan Black and lauren anseline about networks for social impact - what they are, how to convene networks and what to avoid. Content warning: we talk about death and end of life in this podcast. While we talk constructively, the topic may be upsetting for some.

    Randal Plunkett 'Lord Dunsany and the Rewilding of his 1700 acre estate'

    Randal Plunkett 'Lord Dunsany and the Rewilding of his 1700 acre estate'

    Welcome to Bringing Design Closer, the podcast focussed on discussing Designs role in tackling  complex societal issues. Our goal is to have conversations that inspire and to help move the dial forward for organisations to become more human-centred in their approach to solving complex business and societal problems.

    In this episode we welcome Randal Plunkett who is also Lord Dunsany of Dunsany land in Meath, an area 50 miles north west of Dublin City in Ireland. Randal’s family are deeply entrenched in my upbringing - as a great great great great great great uncle of Randals was Oliver Plunkett, who was brutally murdered by Oliver Cromwell in 1681 and who’s head is still on display in the town where I grew up, Drogheda. Randal is one of the last blood lines of Oliver Plunkett - so it’s been fantastic to connect and hear stories about his up bringing.

    I recently spotted an interview with Randal in The Guardian newspaper in the UK where he was interviewed about one of the largest Rewilding projects that I had heard of - which is part of his 1700 acre estate. 

    In the conversation we speak about what led Randal to take the leap into Rewilding, how it was perceived amongst his family and community and mostly importantly, what happened to the land as the years went by.  We speak about the darker side of life as a Lord, who is responsible for not only maintaining an estate - but protecting it for future generations both from environmental damage and decay but also from human damage of the land and hunters who come to prey on the animals who have returned to the Dunsany Estate and Reserve.

    It’s a good one - let’s jump in...

    Iria Lopez 'Designing for loneliness'

    Welcome to Bringing Design Closer, the podcast focussed on discussing Designs role in tackling  complex societal issues. Our goal is to have conversations that inspire and to help move the dial forward for organisations to become more human-centred in their approach to solving complex business and societal problems.

    My name is Gerry Scullion, and I’m a service designer, and founder of This is HCD and CEO of This is Doing - we provide live online design and innovation classes, transformational design and innovation training for teams and organisations for people within the Design and change-making space. 

    Today on the show we have the wonderful Iria Lopez, a UK based service designer. I recently stumbled upon Iria’s work on LinkedIn where she was running a workshop. What struck me was the theme - Designing for loneliness. We speak about the importance of gaining greater context of why people congregate and attend extra-curricular events such as Design meet-ups etc. and that is of human-connection. The importance of being seen, and being heard and part of something. We chat about what we can do as change-makers to be more aware of this context and include it in our facilitation sessions that many of us do quite regularly - and that is to make space for it.
