THE HIDDEN PHILANTHROPIST talks to JIM GODDARD
If you have been searching for ways to contribute to the Zero Carbon Energy movement, but just don’t know how, Jim Goddard can offer you simple action steps that can help you cut energy costs and emissions. Learn how you can ‘do your bit’ towards solving the human induced global warming climate crisis.
Andrew Purdie chats with former global director of World Vision Jim Goddard and current president of Repower Mornington Peninsula. Andrew explores Jim’s past careers and how his involvement in raising funds for children in poverty became something he has done for almost his whole life, and continues to do today. Jim’s role as global director of World Vision fueled further his passion for philanthropy, and eventually led his to beginning his own philanthropic journey of co-founding Repower Mornington Peninsula – a network of local residents working to reduce their energy-related emissions, switching from fossil fuels to clean, renewable energy. Andrew enquires how listeners can become more conscious in their energy-saving efforts, and Jim explains in-depth how listeners can make big changes in different ways to help save our planet and improve quality of life for all people.
