Hilary Benn supports a trial of ColaLife

I got an email this morning which warmed my heart! It was from Hilary Benn MP who was the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs while I was on secondment to Defra until June this year. More significantly perhaps, he was the Secretary of State for International Development from 2003-2007 and so […]

Public Health Guru, Prof Don Nutbeam, on ColaLife

First it was David Berman author of Do Good Design talking about ColaLife in a Peachpit TV interview and then I was sent a link to the above video interview featuring Professor Don Nutbeam. When this was filmed (June 2009), Don was Honourary Professor at the Faculty of Medicine, University of Sydney who also talks about ColaLife […]

David Berman on ColaLife

When putting together The ColaLife Channel I came across this interview with David Berman author of Do Good Design. Kate Andrews hooked us up at the beginning of the year when David’s book was published. In the interview David talks about ColaLife. The link is that on page 40 of his book in the chapter […]

Bob Geldof on ColaLife, condoms and the Pope (take 2)

Another take on the Bob Geldof ColaLife conversation, this time from Lloyd Davis of perfect path. Lloyd is the inspiration behind The Tuttle Club and was a fellow G20 Voice Blogger. I like this take as it shows Nick filming the conversation, the hand shake and tap on the shoulder! You can see Lloyd’s original […]

Bob Geldof on ColaLife, Condoms and the Pope

Simon Berry talks to Bob Geldof about Colalife.org, condoms and the Pope from Podnosh on Vimeo. Thanks to Nick Booth’s (podnosh) journalistic instincts I was able to get in front of Bob Geldof and, rather nervously, explain the ColaLife campaign to him. He got it and had some interesting observations. It is clear we share […]

Dame Barbara Stocking on ColaLife

My letter to Annie Lennox of 30/5/08

Here’s the transcript: Dear Annie On Desert Island Discs you said: We can distribute Coca Cola all around the World but we can’t seem to get medication to save a child from something as simple as diarrhoea and I think that that is wrong. You know, you have a choice you either get involved with […]

What Annie Lennox said

By some miracle my PC and Radio Shark did record last Sunday’s (11/5/08) Desert Island Discs. Unfortunately it’s a very poor recording but this is what Annie Lennox said. Just to put it into context, after talking about her passion for AIDS camapigns in South Africa and the fact that she’s set up her own […]

Calling Annie Lennox and Coca Cola

If you’ve come here from the iPM Blog, please consider joining the campaign on Facebook:  Let’s talk to Coca Cola about saving the World’s children Thanks. An incredible coincidence has happened, involving this lovely woman – and it might even save some children’s lives. A couple of weeks ago I finally got around to blogging […]
