Oisin Lunny on Inside Ideas
Music can inspire climate action
Oisin Lunny is my guest today on Inside Ideas.
An award-winning podcast host and journalist, he is a senior contributor to Forbes, music editor at PHOENIX Magazine, and makes regular contributions to The Guardian, and CX Magazine. His background is a mix of tech and music; and his first band Marxman had a UK top 30 hit and supported Depeche Mode and U2 in the 90s, while his solo music has been featured in films like Human Traffic.
He is the host of the Siemens Advanta podcast and the Audio Talks podcast by HARMAN. Oisin keeps his lifelong passion for music alive by hosting a bi-weekly radio show called Geek Pie Radio.
Oisin has also hosted, moderated, and given keynote presentations at over 200 conferences in every corner of the world, including TEDx, MWC, and six times at SXSW, where he is now a member of the advisory board.
Lunny is also a member of the advisory board of the Moab Foundation which is a nonprofit organization working to create a more sustainable planet through the application of connected intelligence to meet the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
The foundation aims to meet those goals in three ways:
- Spread awareness of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through local communities, businesses, and social media channels.
- 2) Combine technology thought leaders with those who have expertise in the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to define compelling use cases and achievable execution plans where connected intelligence can have a positive impact.
- 3) Equip non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and non-profits with the Moab Connected Intelligence Platform to deliver the situational awareness and insights needed to address SDG use cases.
I am delighted to welcome him on the show to hear about his career and about his passion for using music as a catalyst for environmental change.
