  • All work occurs in a place, and the debate about where and what that place should be remains contentious. Workers are making more conscious choices about where to place themselves - be it in a home office or bedroom, at the local cafe or coworking space, in transit on the train or in a hotel, or in a traditional office in the city. This is for good reason: where we do our work matters, because sometimes without us even knowing it, places are anchoring our careers and shaping our sense of selves, argued HBR.

  • Pacha is a term from the Quechua language - the most spoken Indigenous language family in the Americas. Pacha is a polysemantic word that, in a sense, contains multitudes. Pacha is time and space and a moment in time and space. It is important to highlight that the relationship between those two elements makes it hard, if not impossible, to disentangle them. Another way to understand pacha is as the ‘totality of the world’ or ‘that which makes the world’.

  • Tim Marshall produced a surprise bestseller in 2015: Prisoners of Geography argued maps could explain the biggest problems in international relations. To understand Russian aggression in Ukraine, for example, you needed to grapple with the shape of the north European plain, which has directed centuries of Russian military history. The follow-up, The Power of Geography throws things forward to the regions that will shape tomorrow’s global politics, including Iran, the Sahel and space. His experience close to many frontlines means he knows first-hand how physical topography conditions the literal contours of battle. With a rare ability to boil down complexity with wit, he maps a baffling world for us all.
  • In The Old Ways, Robert Macfarlane travelled ancient paths and following the tracks, holloways, drove-roads and sea paths that form part of a vast ancient network of routes criss-crossing the British Isles and beyond, Macfarlane discovered lost worlds - a landscape of the feet and the mind, of pilgrimage and ritual, of stories and ghosts; above all of the places and journeys which inspire and inhabit our imaginations.
