Good Things Come to Those who Hope

Join Andrew Simms and Nicky Saunter of the Rapid Transition Alliance in conversation with Jules Pretty on Hope. How can we address climate, ecological and social inequality crises with new forms of language and action; how can hope be deployed to improve lives. The joint Hope Tales project is producing new street literature in the form of chapbooks arising from live events across the UK.

Andrew Simms and Nicky Saunter are at the Rapid Transition Alliance. The Hope Tales chapbooks can be found at

The Louder Than Words Podcast

The Louder Than Words podcast is about how ideas improve lives. Professor Jules Pretty created the Louder than Words podcast for conversations on how the world can be made a better place by inquiry, research and public engagement. These are ideas that can inspire individual, collective and policy action.

This is the first podcast from the Centre for Public and Policy Engagement at the University of Essex. There are three series a year: autumn, spring and summer.

Each episode of Louder Than Words takes a key contemporary issue and gives you a chance to hear from leading researchers, policy makers, thinkers and campaigners plus those directly affected by the issue.

The podcast is produced by Marcus Pierpoint and Luke Fitch of the University of Essex’s Media Centre. Producer of series one and two was Martha Dixon, series three was produced by Alli Walker.
