Clearly Sustainable is a series of podcasts which explores the use of English language words and terms used when discussing sustainability. This series is not a dictionary but a spoken journey through how terms are used and some of the common misunderstandings and misuses of such terms. The series is less academic in style and more conversational and engaging, aimed at improving your use of English and giving you clarity and insight into the topic of sustainability.
The series is an initiative of Global Action Plan International, a not-for-profit organisation working for the past 25 years as a global leader in sustainable behaviour change.
This series is produced and presented by Victor Branagan of SustainED and Clearly Sustainable, Ireland. Victor has worked in education for sustainability with international experience over the past 10 years and works as a sustainability coach with individual and business clients. He has a Master’s in Sustainability from Sweden and is a Lead Coach with Climate-KIC. As an Irishman, Victor is a natural talker, orator and poet and he aims to put these skills to good use to make the series both educational and easy to listen to.
The aim of this series is to promote international dialogue around sustainability. The objective is to help people understand how specific words and terms related to sustainability are used in the English language. We will highlight the development of the word or term within the context of sustainability and identify common misunderstandings and easily made mistakes. The goal is to publish a new episode twice per week and to make it available in as many formats as possible to suit the widest audience.
