The world is moving and changing at an ever-increasing speed, but we’re all starting to realise the importance of slowing down. This week we meet Amy Powney who explains how the influence of her off-the-grid childhood led her to be a pioneer in slow, sustainable fashion. Plus, the cameramen who help us understand creatures and plants on different time scales to our own with the help of specialised equipment and a lot of patience. We also meet Lauren Gay who, in 2015, spontaneously booked a “part bucket list adventure trip and part mental health break”. She had no idea how this trip to the Azores would change her life for good.
