Corporate Social Responsibility and Human Rights: Have Ten Years of Voluntarism Worked? – Audio Whilst international corporations are taken to court for complicity in human
rights abuses and the trade in child labour and sweatshops is still a scourge throughout the world, this event asks whether the international approach to corporate social responsibility of the last ten years has worked.

The approach of the last decade has focused primarily on voluntary measures taken by companies and enterprises, and finds expression in codes of conduct and non-binding agreements like the UN Global Compact. The CSR movement originally proposed some measures which should be legally binding on corporations, together with voluntary measures, but this was rejected for a voluntarist approach.

Ten years on we can ask: has this worked?
‎Socially Responsible – What’s Really Good? This podcast follows LaShawn aka Mouse, a native Washingtonian hailing from SouthEast, as she talks about the impact of the principles and values she was raised on and how it has impacted her way of being the loving, sarcastic, witty, innovative person she is today. Her trials and tribulations and WILD adventures of when things go left will either inspire you, give food for thought, take you down memory lane, leave you gagging or even leave you saying hhhhmmmm

Lulu Luchaire; Founder of the Ondalinda Foundation In todays episode we chat with Lulu Luchaire the founder of Ondalinda Foundation, a non-profit project that assists indigenous communities throughout Mexico in preserving their cultural heritage and cultivating a new generation of interdisciplinary artists. Part of proceeds from the Ondalinda x Careyes art exhibition go directly to the Huichol (Wixarica), Purépecha, and other indigenous tribes from Mexico – greatly enabling them to invest in basic infrastructure and resources, to educate and raise awareness for their cause, and to achieve sustainability on a long-term basis.

We discuss the importance of art, community, heritage, sustainability, ritual, and connectivity to inspire humankind and reestablish systems that unite us, rather than separate us. As we are learning every day, the current “win-win” model of commerce that has shaped our world is not a sustainable business practice; by focusing only on the exchange of “buy and sell”, we neglect a third exchange – giving back – which is in fact the very element that brings us together and makes the world a more peaceful and harmonious place for us all to live.

Recidivism or reoffending, creates a ripple effect tha” id=”11pNPE6kCla” vid=”11pNPE6kCla” id-for-player=”11pNPE6kCla” link=”/listen/helen-black-ceo-of-workrestart-11pNPE6kCla/” is-authorized=”false” custom-styles=”margin: 0 24px 24px 0;”>
Helen Black; CEO of WorkRestart In episode 25 we chat with the CEO of WorkRestart, Helen Black about recidivism; what it is, how to pronounce it and most importantly why it is so important to change the current systems for people in contact with the criminal justice system.

Recidivism or reoffending, creates a ripple effect that negatively impacts individuals, their families and their communities. Almost half of the people released from prison in Australia will return to prison within two years, and sadly that percentage only gets higher as years go on.

If you are one of our many international listeners you may be shocked to learn that the UK for instance has a 75% recidivism rate within nine years of being released and the US sits at a staggering 83%, showing just how important it is to change the current systems in order to address these trends and give people a chance at a better future while also reducing the impacts of crime for the wider community.

Providing meaningful and enriching experiences for incarcerated people can help them identify their potential. Real change lies in establishing connections to social enterprises and businesses that can provide ‘next day out’ employment opportunities & harnessing the potential of ‘double impact’ by establishing enterprises that serve communities in diverse areas of need.
Andrew Walker; Co-Founder and Mechanical Engineer of AirSeed Technologies In episode 26 we have an in depth chat with Andrew Walker about his company AirSeed Technologies and it's singular and incredibly complex mission to restore the planet. AirSeed uses drone technology to distribute and plant seeds in areas suffering from deforestation, fire damage and the effects of global warming to name but a few of the issues flora face today, taking into account scientifically backed information on what needs to be re-planted rather than creating a potentially hazardous monoculture by mass planting a single species.
