#206   Power to the People: Changing the way things work with Simon Oldridge

We all know the climate and ecological tipping points are terrifyingly close. What can we do – as individuals and collectively?

This week we talk to Simon Oldridge, who is working to find politically viable ways to address the climate and ecological emergency. I know that many of you listening are not in the UK and that politics is a very siloed space but I hope that some of the ideas we explore, particularly the bigger ones of global power systems and routes to net zero and nature-based solutions, strike home far outside the boundaries of this island.

#205  Becoming Intentional Gods: Claiming the future with Indy Johar of the Dark Matter Labs

We are at a moment of decision: We either step forward into our own Great Destruction, which could theoretically see us wipe out all of humanity and most of the More than Human World…

Or we could step into what Indy Johar calls ‘The Great Peace’, claiming our birthright as the Interstitial Generation between the old paradigm of extraction, consumption and pollution—and the new one that could arise where we accept the interbecoming of all things, where we as individual humans take our place in a community of care and experience that encompasses all of the world.

How can we, as parents, grandparents and anyone who cares about the fate of future generations, live our lives in such a way that when our children ask us why we didn’t do more, we can say with honesty that we did all that we could? How do we help them to build resilience, to feel safe in a supportive community and in connection with the natural world so that as they grow, they can face the truth about the world they have inherited?

And how can we use our role as parents to create conversations that matter, not only with people with meet in our daily lives but also with those in positions of power.

#199  Making The Nettle Dress: a creative journey of attention, magic and loss with Allan Brown and Dylan Howitt

Allan Brown’s exploration into how we could feed and clothe ourselves as we head towards a world of localism and increasing self reliance led to his spending seven years of his life making a a dress from the fibres of the nettles that grew locally.

It was an extraordinary process of experimentation, discovery and ensoulment – a journey into possibility that would be hard to match in our current, frenetic world. And we know about this: the patience of it, the wonder, the loss, the grief, the resilience, the alchemy… the sheer magic, because Dylan made a film, ‘The Nettle Dress’ which also took 7 years and is also a process of emergence and ensoulment and magic and discovery.
