The Louder Than Words Podcast

--- Professor Jules Pretty and Martha Dixon ---

Professor Jules Pretty and journalist Martha Dixon have 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 and was developed with CommsConsult. Louder Than Words will show 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 series will look at climate change, migration, mental health, inequality and nature as therapy.
