59: Eivind Hoff-Elimari – Politics and Policy for the Good Life

“What if we don’t manage to stop a collapse of biodiversity? Then a windmill electric car will be of no value to, I guess, hurricanes against mass migration and so on. But if we’re doing what we know is a flourishing democracy, with equality and trust amongst people, that’ll mean everything”

On this week’s episode Julian talks to Eivind Hoff-Elimari, local politician for the municipality of Nesodden in Norway. Eivind ‘s take on what politics is for is simple – it is for creating a good life. Not in the sense that we culturally understand a good life, but one that is good for everyone, people, places, plants, pets alike.

58: Survival of the Kindest: Kristoffer Robin Haug – Big problems, easy to solve – Green Politics in Norway

“It’s hard in Norway, and this may be because we get so much of our national money from oil and gas. There’s an expression; never expect a man to understand something when his salary depends on him not understanding”

Norwegian Green Party politician Kristoffer Robin takes Julian through where Green Politics is at this moment in time, and where he thinks it is pointing. Having grown from scientists who have seen and fully understood the situation we are in as a species, and as a planet, Green parties have often leaned towards alarmism. However in this conversation Kristoffer talks passionately about how green politics is also the politics of compassion, and one which is planning for a better future for humans, rather than for the stock market.
