In Hawkwood’s first podcast series, Stories That Matter, changemakers, thinkers, and innovators discuss the stories that have influenced them, their visions for the future and the actions they are taking to change the world. Each fortnightly episode will feature a different individual, from visiting speakers to local activists, showcasing the Centre for Future Thinking and the values at its core.

“Hawkwood is interacting with the world out there and making a difference to people’s lives.”

Do Something for Nothing: Five years ago, Joshua Coombs began offering haircuts to men and women who were sleeping rough on the streets of London. He has since travelled the world continuing to do this, whilst sharing his experiences on social media amplifying the lives of people who are all too often invisible.
