EcoRadio KC is a magazine show, including live segments, prerecorded stories, and interviews. The show is being created by a collective of local community organizers and activists. The group chooses a theme for each show which is then produced and hosted by someone from the team. In addition, we draw upon other members of the community as well as area organizations for their knowledge, experience, and ideas.
EcoRadio KC explores our interdependence with the rest of the world, showing the connections between the ways we choose to live and the health of the whole community of life. As a result, we plan to cover a wide range of topics, including local & regenerative agriculture, energy conservation & efficiency, justice, eco-villages, alternative medicine, indigenous peoples, clean energy, local food systems, biofuels, the need for multicultural participation in social change, global warming & climate disruption, extinction, green building and chemistry, and consumerism. If you have any questions or comments about the show or would like to get involved with the team that produces it, please send an email to [email protected].
