We’re excited to announce the launch of season 2 of our award winning podcast, Igniting change. Just as a recap, last season was all about the intention action gap that many of us find ourselves in. Where we want to be more sustainable, but don’t take action on it. This season we go further into sustainable living and the climate crisis, but also branch out to talk to some incredible guests on their efforts for equality and humanitarian aid.
For this series, we will be looking at more inspiring ways in which people and tech are out there doing good in the world.
The hosts of our podcast are Richard Strachan, Managing Director at 3 Sided Cube along with co-hosts Gabby Crouch, Head of Commercial at 3 Sided Cube and Puff Story Co-Founder of 3 Sided Cube USA.
After an incredible response to our first award winning season, we are back to talk all things tech for good!
Rich Strachan, 3 Sided Cube, CEO
Igniting Change is our award winning podcast to talk to those who are driving behavioural change and striving to make a real difference in the world. In season 2, we will also be expanding our focus to discuss humanitarian issues and the roles that we can play to empower and assist on a global scale.
Our aim is to get the right people in the right room to create solutions to the world’s biggest problems. We do this through collaborative events, with past speakers from WWF, Innocent and Beauty Kitchen as well as research reports and of course, here on our podcast.
We started Igniting Change as we believe technology can create a better future. Working with organisations including the American Red Cross, Forest Watcher, the World Resources Institute, and LUSH, we are embarking on a mission to create apps that enable and nudge people, businesses and NGOs to improve their efforts and make better choices.
