  3. Mindset and shifting perspective — The Happiness Algorithm with special guest Sophie Green

    “It’s impossible to admire the beauty of the natural world without also reflecting on its vulnerability.” —Sophie Green

    Today I was joined by the award-winning wildlife artist, Sophie Green. On today’s show we discussed how it’s important to find joy in the present moment; how in the current climate it’s easy to be caught up in negative thinking but how we can shift and change our perspective to recognise what we do have, rather than what we don’t.

    Sophie highlighted how it’s dangerous to deny ourselves the permission to feel certain ways; why observing and noticing our thoughts and how we’re feeling is an important skill to learn and how certain feelings can have an impact on our physical well being.

    We even discussed woodpeckers!

  6. “Beyond Paris: Facing the challenges” presented by Prof. Barry McMullin

    Professor Barry McMullin’s (Executive Dean, Faculty of Engineering and Computing, Dublin City University) “not-so-quick summary talk that [he] gave in March 2016, that reflects on the challenges of effective climate action, post the Paris Agreement (with due acknowledgement to Prof. Kevin Anderson)” (

    The Paris Agreement sets the ambitious objective of keeping global average temperatures “to well below 2°C above pre-industrial levels and to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1½°C above pre-industrial levels” yet offers few means to achieve it. Barry will outline the scale of the challenge for our societies if we are to try to achieve this objective.
