This episode of the edie podcast takes listeners on a whirlwind tour of Eddington, a new 150-hectare, sustainable community developed by the University of Cambridge, as well as a trip to the cinema to talk brand purpose and climate activism with Patagonia's general manager Ryan Gellert.

The edie podcast reaches episode 40 and to mark the occasion we travel up to Cambridge to discuss the £1bn Eddington development, which includes the largest rainwater harvesting system in the UK, a district heating network and an innovative, underground strategy to dealing with waste, with the North West Cambridge Development’s project manager and former AECOM director Heather Topel.

Later, we travel to London for the launch of Patagonia’s latest documentary film, 'Blue Heart’, depicting the fight to protect the Balkan’s last wild rivers from the adverse impacts of hydropower projects, featuring a one-to-one interview with the firm’s general manager for Europe Ryan Gellert.
