AL is joined by co-host Phill Morris to talk to, friend of The Biscuit, Dr Phill Gittins, who is a renown peace builder from Shropshire. Dr Phill is joining us from where he is currently situated in Bloivia, South America.

This podcast is not designed to scare, worry or confuse anyone.

The purpose of this podcast is to open up a healthy discussion about how we ourselves can talk about the current terrible war in Ukraine. There are many aspects that we need to look at here:
– How can we talk to our inquisitive children about this?
– Should we shield our kids from the facts, or openly discuss the war?
– What do we mean about the power of non-violence and how  important is this?
– How can we help the community around us?
– What is the business of war?

We are all aware of how scary these times are, the awful effects this war is having on the Ukrainian population, the direct and indirect effects the war can have on us here.
We have to be able to discuss this situation, get things off your chest and maybe look for ways we can help.

Dr Phill works with who work all around the world to try and open up the world of peace-building to many, offering the tools and training necessary. A direct quote from their website reads  ‘So, if we can’t use war to resolve international conflicts, what can we do? Finding a way to transition to a global security system that is supported by international law, diplomacy, collaboration, and human rights, and defending those things with nonviolent action rather than the threat of violence, is the heart of WBW’
