Building Trust in an Era of Uncertainty
1886
This episode examines trust, which is, "the dark matter" of society, invisible yet essential to accomplishing great progress e.g. the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). From good health & well-being to reducing inequality, the SDGs require massive cooperation between all people and governments.  But how is this possible in an era of uncertainty and mistrust? Our hosts, Claudia and Edie, explore how mistrust has stalled progress on health and other goals and share methods for rebuilding trust.

Davos GoalsCast 2018
1341
Jimmy Wales and Richard Edelman talk to Edie Lush and Claudia Romo Edelman about the globalism vs nationalism debate at Davos and how it shapes prospects for achieving the Global Goals. Leaders from countries as different as India, Canada and France said the global economic system isn't working. Fix the roof while the sun is shining, said Christine LaGarde of the IMF. President Trump presented a kinder, gentler face at Davos; but he was clear in his view that nations should put their own interests first.

Journey Across Antarctica: the Swans and Climate Change
1694
Thirty years ago, Robert Swan walked across this icy desert to the South Pole. He tried again, departing November 2017, this time with his twenty-three-year-old son, Barney. Their goal was to highlight the importance of sustainable energy and the imperative to curb climate change. They traveled with only renewable energy sources. Rob, now 61, was obviously older than the first time. He trained hard to make up for his own change, though what he could not prepare for was a change in the Antarctic.
