'They get a sense of self-worth – that’s vital': the charities teaching skills that change lives
Tue, 16 Mar 2021 16:28:27 GMT

By helping people to develop the skills they need to find work, build resilience and ultimately manage their lives better, charities can also bring benefits to the wider community

It took years for Paige Parker to find help. Life had been difficult growing up in the tiny Cotswold town of Winchcombe, says the 22-year-old: her father left when she was young, and her mother endured several abusive relationships, which took their toll on both of them. Parker struggled at school, fell in with the wrong crowd and found herself heavily dependent on drugs and alcohol.

“I was totally lost and unmotivated. My life wasn’t heading in a good direction,” she says. Seeking help wasn’t easy either. “I always found it very difficult to trust people and open up. But Young Gloucestershire was different. I felt welcome. I didn’t feel judged.”

Coal financing costs surge as investors opt for renewable energy

Study finds returns must repay four times the payoff from clean energy investment to justify escalating risk

Coal financing costs have surged over the last decade as investors demand returns four times as high as the payoff required from renewable energy projects to justify the risk of investing in fossil fuels, as the world moves towards cleaner energy sources.

A University of Oxford study found that over the same period the cost of investing in renewable energy sources, such as windfarms and solar arrays, has tumbled as the clean energy technologies prove they can be cost-effective and lucrative investments.

The race for rare earth minerals: can Australia fuel the electric vehicle revolution?
Fri, 16 Apr 2021 20:00:15 GMT

China dominates supply of the elusive metals, which are vital to modern technology, but finding new sources is becoming a global priority

There are an estimated 1.4bn cars on the world’s roads today. Around 78m new cars are sold every year. To head off the worst effects of climate change, every single one will need to go electric eventually.

Whether it rolls off a production line in Fremont, California, or comes together in a vast megafactory in Qinghai, China, a colossal amount of human effort must go into building the components and obtaining their base minerals. In each car, for instance, there is roughly a kilogram of magnet providing the motion needed to fire engines and electrify windows. Roughly 30% of this material is made up of rare earth material known as neodymium and praseodymium (NdPr).
