The Humanitarian sector can seem immovable, static and rigid in the way it works, while at the same time is ever moving and ever adapting in its priorities. How can a sector such as this rapidly adapt to the worsening climate crisis?
In this episode, podcast host Juliet Millican welcomes Gareth Owen, the humanitarian director of Save the Children, and the initiator of the Humanitarian Leadership Academy. Juliet and Gareth explore and discuss Gareth's new book, 'When The Music's Over', and explore his experience working as a young aid worker in Somalia in 1993.
Later in the episode, Juliet interviews a long time friend and associate of Gareth's, George Francis Iwa. George Francis is the director of CAFOMI - a leading local humanitarian organisation in Uganda.
“We need to think radically differently if we’re going to sustain our existence together, in harmony with our planet - our only home.” - Gareth Owen
