The Louder Than Words Podcast

--- University of Essex ---

The Louder Than Words podcast is about ideas that improve lives. Professor Jules Pretty has created the Louder than Words podcast to encourage difficult discussions, to offer a platform to people making a difference and to explain how you can take action on issues you care about. This is the first podcast from the Centre for Public and Policy Engagement at the University of Essex. Louder Than Words shows how research delivers solutions to global problems, how we can improve people’s lives and how we can inspire people to take action now. Each episode of Louder Than Words will look at a key global issue and give you a chance to hear from leading researchers, policy makers, thinkers and campaigners plus those directly affected by the issue. The first and second series were produced by CommsConsult and presented by Martha Dixon. Series Three is being produced by Ali Walker at the University of Essex's Media Centre.
