Episode 5: Coping with COVID - How do we spread hope? With Thomas Coombes (Part 2)
"When you need hope most is when things are the most dark."   Our instinct as communicators is to tell the story of the things that make us angry - government failure, human rights abuses, etcetera. But we also need to show the things that are going right, and how these came to be. In dark times such as the COVID-19 pandemic, we need to show people, above all, that change is possible. Listen to part two of this discussion between the Owls (Oya, Joza, and Mika) and Thomas Coombes, a human rights strategist and the founder of the organization Hope-Based Communications.

Introducing... Give A Hoot!
We are WiseOwl, a group of communicators for social change.  In the course of our work, people have approached us having had a negative experience with communication. Eh kasi naman, kalat ang fake news, kaliwa't kanan nagsisiraan, ang bilis magshift ng trends, kakagawa mo pa lang, laos na pala! What more if you're an advocate or communicating a cause? Saan ka lulugar? Paano ka makikipagsabayan?   And we've seen it in our own practice. Communication is powerful... if only we took the time to talk about it. That's why we're doing this podcast. Here at Give a Hoot, we will sit down and talk to strategists, advocates, academics, creatives, and others who can talk about how we can use communication in creating positive change.  Let's have more of these conversations that make us really think about issues that make an impact.  Give a hoot with us!
