With this podcast we give our community the opportunity to get to know the Giraffe Heroes behind the foundation better by gaining deeper insight into their work. Thus you will have an opportunity of a direct encounter with these personalities sticking their necks out for the common good, fighting for the social issues that matter: justice, freedom, our environment. In our podcast, commended Giraffes are talking with us about the issues that count most for them and which drive them “To Stick their Necks Out” for our common good. We offer you a direct and often very personal "look" behind the scenes of their day to day activities. What made them start fighting for their local communities? How did they manage to cope with and overcome resistance? And yes, what concerns them and which dangers do they perceive as threatening the success of their struggle? Be inspired and have fun!


episode 35: Knock Knock... Who's There?

Changemaking: the superpower of the 21st century

In the hopes to establish a cross-border collaborative platform for kanthari graduates and friends to share ideas, challenges and solutions. In March, kanthari started the initiative “knock”, as for kanthari network of change and knowledge. „A network can only sustain if each person is contributing something“. My guest today, Meghana Raveendra took on the job to coordinate kantharis all over the globe to boost collaboration and amplify their impact. And we learn – it is all about using the connection one has – through a network. How she’s trying to manage this and what else she does, for example with her organisation “Moringa” (miracle tree), to help children and students to live with anxieties – she will explain in this very delightful talk.
