Sounds Like A Plan / 'Connection' – with Charlotte Church

Listen on

Episode notes

Charlotte Church has a deep history with both activism and music – and right now she's putting her energy into two grassroots projects that bring together the strands of education, environment, wellbeing, sustainability and the future of our planet. 

She joins co-hosts Fay Milton and Greg Cochrane to discuss Rhydoldog – an area of outstanding natural beauty in mid-Wales – where, along with the community, she's building a healing retreat centre. She also explains how The Awen Project, the democratic school she co-founded, approaches topics like climate education. She also reveals her plan to become a gong bath practitioner! 

It's all rooted in a deep passion for the natural environment and the urge to create a better future for the next generations. 

Fay and Greg also reflect on the outcomes of COP26, and leave you with some recommendations. 

Sounds Like A Plan series 2 is supported by Festival Republic. They put on festivals including the legendary Leeds Festival, being at Bramham Park, Leeds on August 26-28th 2022. Weekend tickets are available now:
