Im delighted as co-founder of Access to Inspiration podcast, which published its 100th podcast episode recently to announce we are partnering with the Royal Scottish Geographical Society (RSGS) to record a series focused on climate solutions and encouraging people to be more actively climate conscious. The series will feature a range of guests who will share their insights on ways to create a more sustainable future by using creativity, campaigning, and collaborating with business, including JoJo Mehta, Co-Founder of Stop Ecocide, Roisin Hyde, whose TED Talk on Geopolymers has had over 30,000 views and Bertrand Piccard who successfully flew around the world in a solar-powered airplane.
Both RSGS and Access to Inspiration share values of being inspiring and informative as well as championing a global perspective.
Mike Robinson, Chief Executive of RSGS commented “We are pleased to be working in partnership with the Access to Inspiration podcast. At RSGS, we are no strangers to promoting inspiration – hosting around 100 talks across Scotland every year for our Inspiring People talks programme, where we bring stories of science, journeys and adventure. We believe that it is not only important to inform people about key issues, we must do so in a way that inspires them to believe that things can be different, especially on critical long-term issues like climate change. We can’t wait to get started, and have already organised a line-up of great speakers and leaders in the field of sustainability.”
The Royal Scottish Geographical Society (RSGS) founded in 1884 has a rich history of inspiring people to discover more about the world around them. RSGS is a small, dynamic, educational charity, working across Scotland and beyond to promote greater geographical understanding of people, places and the planet. Despite its size it is increasingly viewed as one of the most dynamic geographical societies in the world today. Striving to inform people about the key issues that affect them, inspire them that things can be different, and convene cross-sectoral groups to influence positive change.
Access to Inspiration podcast launched in 2019 with a social mission to encourage listeners to reflect on the world differently. It is ranked in the top 10% of most popular podcasts globally, according to Listen Notes, and was the first podcast in the industry to publish an Impact Report in 2021 showing how much the podcast had impacted listeners, guests, and those who work on the show. Podnews described it as a good report card for a podcast and could be emulated by others.
