How a fossil-fuel company became a wind giant • This podcast is another example which helped me better understand the complexity of why good things aren’t happening. CEO of Denmark’s wind giant explains why wind energy, a fundamentally good thing for the planet, is not being adopted as much as it should. Also one of the best podcasts.

SUX • Manifesto. Podcast. Playbook. It’s the Sustainable UX network. A community of more than 2000 designers worldwide.

Facts don’t change minds. Stories do • This long read article from LSE makes the ever clearer case that stories are the solution to hearts and minds..
Citizen Sleeper • I played a game written and developed by a much more talented Gareth. Citizen Sleeper has a slow-paced immersive sci-fi story you’d expect from any great novel, with a suspenseful layer of risk mechanics. The story layers a diverse cast of characters who are going through their own very human storylines. The soundtrack is a perfect work.
Sustainable Apparel & Textiles Conference • Some great industry speakers here. 25th - 26th April in Amsterdam.
