Lot of videos this week – headphones on
Ukraine first, natch:
Development Impact of War in Ukraine: Initial projections @UNDP: ‘30% of population likely to require life-saving humanitarian assistance. In its current scale and direction, 18m people projected to become affected and more than 7m internally displaced.’ undp.org/publications/d…
Arnold Schwarzenegger shows how comms is done, but will anyone in Russia be able to see the video?
Collateral damage: with all eyes (and chequebooks) on Ukraine, a pledging event for the crisis in Yemen raised less than a third of what is needed.
Zelenskiy the comedian (and his audience) in happier times. Something v poignant about this – both the naff comedy, and the hilarity of the audience. Where are they now? (don’t be put off – the ‘Stop It’ warning refers to stopping the bombing, not the video)
Nice FT portrait of Dhananjayan Sriskandarajah, my boss at Oxfam GB: He took the job when a former Oxfam board member told him: “Real leaders run into the fire, not away from it.’
Two webinars (first one tomorrow) to discuss ‘The pracademic as change agent’ = somebody who acts as a bridge between academia and practice. Who are they? What do they do? Impact? Barriers?
And a beautiful letter from John Steinbeck to Marilyn Monroe
