How can we better prepare for disasters and how can we improve our response?
Professor Jules Pretty from the University of Essex and journalist Martha Dixon speak to experts from the University of Essex and the organisations at the frontline of disaster response.
Professor Jules Pretty and journalist Martha Dixon have created the Louder than Words podcast to encourage difficult discussions, to offer a platform to people making a difference and to explain how you can take action on issues you care about.
The Louder Than Words Podcast shows how research delivers solutions to global problems, how we can improve people’s lives and how we can inspire people to take action now. Each episode of Louder Than Words will look at a key global issue or research challenge and give you a chance to hear from leading researchers, policy makers, thinkers and campaigners plus those directly affected by the issue.
The first season looked at climate change, migration, mental health, inequality and nature as therapy. The second season will look at the Warner Textile Archive, telecommunications pioneer Marconi, disasters and how we prepare for them, our planet and crop production and surveillance technology.
