Social concerns

Bill Lies, Executive Director of the Center for Social Concerns at the University of Notre Dame, visited us recently and Lorraine McIlrath took the opportunity of interviewing him in our recording studio. You can watch it here (Windows Media file. The sound is a little distorted at the beginning, but settles down).

Moira Swinbank of Timebank (UK) also spoke to Lorraine Tansey about her organisation and its support of volunteering.

Two further interviews include Sr Stanislaus Kennedy speaking about the Young Social Innovators Programme with Christina McDonald Legg and Dr. Dean McGovern of Montana Campus Compact chatted with Lorraine McIlrath.

We already mentioned Ahmed Bawa's interview (earlier post, below).

All of these will soon be on our new CKI (Community Knowledge Initiative) website along with many more audio and video resources on the general themes of civic engagement, volunteering and service learning. I'll let you know when the launch date is as soon as I hear!
