  • Rum! Rum for your lives!

    Dec 24, 2021 by

    In the Christmas period, it is estimated that 5,768,212,788 units of alcohol are consumed by adult Britons*. Extrapolating that globally, we start to see numbers that are difficult to pronounce i.e. a lot of alcohol. Despite this increased festive consumption, public thought often fails to address questions such as “was this alcohol manufactured sustainably?” or… Read more

  • Taking refuge in the code

    Dec 17, 2021 by

    By the end of 2016, nearly 5.2 million refugees and migrants treacherously reached European shores, leaving their war-torn countries rife with prosecution and misfortune. That number, 4 years on, is still rising and there’s no indication of it stopping and that’s due to the plethera of ongoing crises that continue to inundate many developing countries.… Read more

  • If we don’t learn, we can’t change

    Sep 28, 2020 by

    For people to grow and move forward as a society, we must learn. We must be educated. If we don’t do this, it is inevitable for us to remain stagnant. Now, if we could afford to stay stagnant and keep things just the way they are, this wouldn’t be an issue. But just look around.… Read more

  • Small things make for a long term

    Feb 19, 2020 by

    A couple of months ago, I posted about the Wildlife Aid Foundation (WAF), an animal charity based in Leatherhead, UK, who at the time were closing in on a fundraising target to help build a new housing unit for the care of wild animals in the UK. Since then, I’ve been following WAF and starting… Read more

  • Poverty doesn’t discriminate, nor does its fighters.

    Jan 18, 2020 by

    Last week I posted about The Trussell Trust, calling out their undeniably powerful efforts to feed those in the UK who are not so fortunate and it got me thinking about the nature of the charity. The Trussell Trust are a Christian charity but do not discriminate those of other religions. How inspiring it is… Read more

  • Are you feeling hangry?

    Jan 7, 2020 by

    Who actually gets to be hangry? Being hangry is a fairly new phrase and quite aptly describes the feeling you get when you are both hungry and angry – hangry. If you do find yourself feeling hangry, you would typically tuck into a juicy burger, a spicy pizza or whatever tickles your fancy. This phrase,… Read more

  • Tackling African malnutrion with not just more food – but with better food.

    Dec 19, 2019 by

    Malnutrition is yet another inconceivably big problem on our planet today, affecting over 2 billion people – that’s over a quarter of the global population! In countries, like many African countries, where malnutrition is so widespread, governments have stepped in to address this issue with National Fortification Standards which, through central processing plants, add the… Read more

  • Capitalising on swinging weather extremes.

    Dec 17, 2019 by

    I was fortunate enough to be taught the difference between climate and weather at school; put simply one is long term and the other short term. What we weren’t taught, fortunately, was this difference in practice. We weren’t able to tangibly see this difference yet – we just knew it existed and so it was… Read more

  • I want change. Show me how.

    Dec 13, 2019 by

    It is often the case we do not get what we feel we deserve or that there is more that can be done. During these times, it is incredibly difficult to stop yourself falling into a spiral of demotivation and a feeling of despair. Not-for-profit social enterprise, MySociety, gives the UK’s public access to online… Read more

  • New power unlocked to support London’s homeless.

    Dec 11, 2019 by

    How many times have you walked past a homeless person in the last month? Quite a few. How many of those people you walked past have you stopped for and given something to? None. How many of those people you walked past have you spoken to? None. How many of those people you walked past… Read more

  • Are we sending untapped power to the dumpyard?

    Dec 9, 2019 by

    If you had to take a guess, how many lithium-ion batteries do you think you have used in your life? “That’s a tough one; too many.” Okay, of all those batteries you’ve used, how many of those were completely depleted when you threw them away? “Obviously all of them! Why would I throw away batteries… Read more

  • U4Society Network.

    Dec 8, 2019 by

    The idea of institutes of higher education actively working together is something we hear about often, yet exclusively, in specific fields of research, wherein there may be a need to collaborate based on required expertise or available facilities, but the U4Society Network takes a different approach. U4Society Network is a European University Network of Ghent… Read more

  • Growing Health.

    Dec 6, 2019 by

    Sustain, an alliance for better food and farming, representing around 100 national public interest organisations working at international, national, regional and local levels, has partnered with Garden Organic, a charity that has built an increasingly massive community who believe that organic growing is a key driver for a healthy and sustainable world. The output of… Read more
