Shownotes

All of us are living in a global climate crisis. Our planet is warming fast. Luckily, there is a solution: If nature is brought back by applying cost-effective nature-based solutions, we can mitigate global warming by 37%! This will benefit nature, biodiversity, and people everywhere, and help cool down our planet. Justdiggit is on a mission to regreen Africa and cool down the planet. Together with millions of farmers, and together with you.

Joining Max on the broadcast is Stuart Taylor. After a 35-year career in the UK media sector, Stuart now devotes his time to tackling the climate crisis as UK Country Director for Dutch environmental foundation Justdiggit.

He is a former UK CEO of Kinetic Worldwide, the world’s leading out-of-home media planning and buying agency and part of WPP. Prior to this, and until its sale to Global Radio, Stuart was CEO of Guardian Media Group Radio (GMG Radio) and sat on the board of parent group, GMG Plc. He has been Non-Exec Director for several organisations including micro-mobility start-up Buzzbikes.

He sat on the boards of Digital Radio UK, RadioPlayer, and Radio Centre. Stuart joined GMG Radio after a long career at Guardian News and Media, where he was Commercial Director.
