What can I learn from the series?

Jake, the podcast series host says, ‘We’re searching for the planet’s best community projects and ideas, and sharing what we find. We've found inspiring stories and practical insights to help you serve your community, wherever in the world you live.’

Covering a variety of topics from community and mental health to youth-led eco-entrepreneurship, the series contains something for everyone.

‘That was beautiful. I’d like to hear more insights like this - I’ve had moments when I did not know the next step.’
