The MakingCommunity Podcast

Welcome to MakingCommunity! 

Our Mission is to surface, showcase and celebrate the power of communities from across the globe.

We wish to inspire our fellow humans and give them the motivation, methods, and courage to make and nurture new communities. We believe in the importance of togetherness and being connected. The power and impact of communities can not be underestimated. It’s through communities that we can support our wellbeing and bring about positive health outcomes.

We are embarking on an exploratory journey of learning and discovery as we share insights on how to building and nurture communities.

Here you can find the recordings of the podcast episodes here, complete with the show notes and information on where and how to subscribe.

As we set this up there will be more features here here is the link to the spotify show site.
