Join me at a special event on 8th Nov 2021!

Exciting news today as I’d like to invite you to a live online recording of a new episode of my ‘Humans & Hope’ podcast. It’s on Monday 8th November at 3pm GMT, and is about how we can seek social change more effectively – from standing up to discrimination through to building more successful campaigns.

Just reply to this message or email to reserve your place – and I’ll send you the Zoom link for the session.

It’s an essential session for anyone seeking a better world – whether in your job or in your everyday life. There’ll be loads of valuable insights from expert psychologists in the main session, and plenty of time for you to ask questions at the end.

In the session I’ll be talking to Dr Maja Kutlaca from Durham University and Dr Helena Radke from the University of Edinburgh about how we can seek social change more effectively – from confronting discrimination through to building more successful campaigns.

We’ll explore some of their fascinating insights, including our attitudes towards people who stand up against injustice, how to build stronger coalitions to tackle social issues and how to develop more effective campaigns.

The session should last around an hour.

So, join me, Maja and Helena – as well as many others – on Monday 8th November at 3pm, and hone your campaigning and social change skills with the help of evidence from psychology!

To take part, simply reply to this email or email me at . Please do share this invite with your charity colleagues and contacts – everyone is welcome. But hurry – places fill up fast!

New podcast episode out today (18/10/21) – “Are humans moral?”

I’m also pleased to say that a new episode of ‘Humans & Hope’ is out today – and it’s a belter!

In this episode I talk to Dr Pascal Burgmer, lecturer in Social and Organisational Psychology at the University of Kent, about morality, and whether it’s really possible for human beings to meet the moral standards we commonly set ourselves. Is it really possible for us to be the selfless, kind, moral creatures we want to be?

We ask how our moral thinking and behaviour works – and whether the moral standards we set ourselves as human beings are realistic. If they’re not – what’s the best we can hope for and how might we achieve it?

It’s a fascinating conversation – you can listen to it now in the places below or wherever you get your podcasts from.
