Eminent writer, broadcaster and commentator on sustainable development Sir Jonathon Porrit is on the podcast today and I think it’s pretty apt that he’s being interviewed by one of new researchers here at the Doctor’s Kitchen, Sakina Okoko, who is part of the generation that will have to adopt mindful climate change behaviours.
Sir Jonathon was formerly Director of Friends of the Earth, co-chair of the Green Party of which he is still a member; a Trustee of WWF-UK and his book ‘Hope in Hell’, was published in June 2020.
Jonathon and Sakina talk about a wide collection of topics including:
Sakina has only been working at Doctor’s Kitchen for less than a year as a research assistant straight out of university, and we’ve already got her experience in developing consumer digital technology products, writing well researched and digestible articles and now interviewing some incredible people on the podcast!
I’m super impressed with her development and if you wanted to give some positive and constructive feedback, I’m sure Sakina would very much welcome that and I’ve attached a google form that you can find on the podcast show notes on your podcast player here.
