In this week’s show we talk about the Paignton Regeneration meeting and what it means for key projects in the area.
We then go onto talk about the volunteer opportunity of the week which is with Humanity Torbay who run a centre in Torquay and whose team of dedicated volunteers support people who find themselves homeless with practical help and advice.
We share news of a new project starting in Exeter entitled Good for Nothing which has been created to support local social and environmental projects that need help and bring together people who want to gift their talent and knowledge for nothing.
In his regular feature Things to ponder about David talks about his journey through food from growing up in Colombia through to his conscious choice to move to a vegetarian diet.
We share the news of the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation which was delivered by Pope Francis and Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, the head of the Orthodox Christian Church who appealed to those in positions of power to “hear the cry of the Earth and to attend to the needs of the marginalised”
We highlight an excellent example of helping people to make the transition to a clean energy future by talking about the launch of the first Solar Skills training programme from Iron and Earth in Canada who are supporting people who work in the fossil fuel industry to retrain into clean energy jobs
