TFOT: Episode 4 - Hans Zomer - "I dream in English"
In this 4th episode of The Family of Things,Helen Shaw's guest is Hans Zomer, Director of Dóchas, a development network, and lead organisation on the European Year of Development in Ireland. Hans talks about being shaped by his Dutch presbyterian roots, his family's experience of World War 2 and his childhood growing up in Cameroon.
2015 is an action year for world development with two landmark UN events aiming to secure a new set of development goals and a global agreement on the environment and climate change. For Hans it is a challenge to all of us to ask and answer how can we make a positive difference in 2015?
