Hi all. You might enjoy this new episode of the How To Build Community podcast and radio show:

Since 2018, DANIEL SARA TURAY has been running a huge volunteer project in his region of Sierra Leone.

He's been telling me how, and why.…

Building Community In A Crisis: The Science of Kindness, Connection and Control

Hi all.

Yesterday I spoke with a Clinical Psychologist who specialises in helping groups of people to thrive under stressful conditions.

Lots of good insights e.g. I had no idea that being kind can boost our immune system. And kindness is contagious!

Hope For The Hills: Running a Hospital in North East India

I recently interviewed a man called Dr Sedevi Angami for the 'How To Build Community' podcast and radio show. He runs a hospital in Dimapur, and he was telling me about his life and work, and how a hospital can be a centre for the transformation of a community, going well beyond medicine.

I find Sedevi to be a very refreshing, encouraging and inspiring company. It feels rare (in my part of the world)  to meet someone who's seen & done so much, and yet remains seemingly…

Alastair McIntosh on Climate Change, Community & 'Spiritual Activism'

Hi all,

I once read that "only a demanding common task builds community". It's hard to think of a task more demanding - or more common - than climate change. One of my favourite writers and thinkers is a Scottish man called Alastair McIntosh, and he has written at length about both of these things: climate change and community. 

I was very excited recently to speak with him for Arukah Network's How To Build Community podcast. I got to ask him about these…

I recently spoke with the award-winning New York-based storyteller Laura Simms for Arukah Network's 'How To Build Community' podcast. You might enjoy it:…

India, Gender & The Naive Enquirer
