Hello! Are you into politics, design or social action? Welcome to the Half Full podcast.
Over the next couple of months, we are going to be looking for stories of hope around the world. Why? Because we think that an awful lot of political and social decisions at the moment are driven by fear. We want to hear stories of people who have felt angry, frustrated or fearful about an issue that impacts them personally, and have turned that anger into a force for good.
If you are one of these people, then why not have a chat with us?
Or if you don't have a story, but are thinking, blimey, this sounds interesting, then fill up this survey and tell us what kinds of stories you'd like to hear. We will be in touch in early 2017 with our first series.
What can I expect from this podcast?
The questions we want to explore are simple but big!
Each episode will look at hope from a different angle: personal, sociological, political, historical, personal, sometimes maybe even scientific… It will include a mix of conversations with academics, practitioners, politicians, and everyday people about their experiences and ideas about where humans find hope and how they use it to shape a better world.
We will explore questions such as:
- What gives us hope? And what do we do with it?
- What stops us from being able to think positively about the future?
- Is there a positive future for all of us?
- How do humans turn challenges into opportunities?
