People to People Podcast: Exploring Scotland and Malawi's unique partnership through People to People conversations
Hosted and produced by Chimzy Dorey and Hazel Darwin-Clements.
We challenged two hugely inspiring women, Hazel and Chimzy, to work together (their own Scotland-Malawi partnership, in microcosm!) to explore the bilateral relationship through dozens of chats with other Malawians and Scots.
We encourage members, partners, and -really- EVERYONE to follow their amazing ‘People to People Podcast’, which shares voices from across both nations and digs down into what the people-to-people and nation-to-nation friendship means in 2021.
Their words are theirs: speaking independently of the SMP, exploring the themes how they want to and giving voice to whom they choose. It’s not to be missed: it’ll make you laugh, cry and learn!
Bonus Episode: People and President
What would you ask the President of Malawi? How did the youth in Malawi interact with COP26?
This special episode was recorded in Malawi and in Edinburgh, focussing on conversations about the Climate.
It contains our interview with the President Dr Lazarus Chikwera recorded at the Scotland Malawi Partnership Homecoming Reception in Edinburgh during COP26. We also spoke with organisers of the COP Hub in Lilongwe, Mtameni Kachusa and Stella Masanganu, and many youth activists and school children in Malawi.
"I know what has happened in the past, there were commitments that weren’t held up to. I just have that little hope that this time will be different. Because now we are on the verge of total destruction, maybe this time we will learn to do something important", Denwa (youth Climate Activist in Malawi).
“The negative impacts of climate change are very noticeable in Malawi... it’s so sad because agriculture is very important in Malawi”, Chimzy.
"The Malawian Young People's voice is being incorporated in whatever solutions are being suggested", President Lazarus Chakwera.
