In this episode of Change Pioneers, host Sarah Todd welcomes Jeff Rousset, National Organizer for U.S. nonprofit Prometheus Radio Project (PRP). They will discuss how PRP helped to get the new Local Community Radio Act passed by the U.S. Congress, and what it will mean for communities that start these stations.
New low frequency stations across the U.S. will be going live over the next 1-2 years. The new stations have the potential to change the face of radio nationwide. Many such stations are also being used in other countries to ensure a "free press" local coverage of community issues and events.
We'll talk about the stories of these stations and how to get one up and running. Prometheus provides extensive information and support to U.S. groups wanting to start low frequency radio stations in their community. Private foundations are funding other similar efforts across the globe.
Call in to ask Jeff your questions!
Host Sarah Todd talks with three nonprofit sector leaders about when nonprofits should consider a merger as a strategic option for continued community service, and how to succeed at this often challenging process.
MAP for Nonprofits executive director Judy Alnes tells about the firm's extraordinary experience leading 80-plus Twin Cities nonprofits through a realignment process when services duplication, financial pressures and other needs demanded a change. MAP has developed a well tested "realignment process" used to help nonprofits succeed at merging. Ed Stracke from Camps of Courage and Friendship talks about his organization's own experience of merging with another nonprofit.
Sarah also talks with the Amherst Wilder Foundation researcher Laura Martell Kelly about Wilder Research's analysis of the processes of 41 nonprofit mergers and the merger success factors identified. Their report in conjunction with MAP, Success Factors in Nonprofit Mergers, is a great resource for nonprofits looking at strategies for continued community service in the challenging times nonprofits are facing.

Edward Bridge Danson: Steward of the New West
This is a two-for-one! Did you know that the WNPA supports parks by producing more than a half million pieces of free literature annually, including trail guides, newspapers, schedules, and brochures? Did you know that the WNPA contributed more than $55 million to national parks, generated through store sales to park visitors and the support of their members? Jim Cook will elaborate on just how this all works and why the WNPA is essential to the operations of our national parks very ability to survive. You’ll also hear from Eric Penner Haury, the nephew of Ted Danson and grandson of Edward Bridge Danson (aka Ned). Eric’s book details Ned’s interesting, colorful life from a boy born to Cincinnati high society to a young, ambitious University of Arizona anthropology student. Ned eventually became an expert administrator with deep personal connections to northern Arizona tribal members, ranchers and scientists. He was a connector, a game changer and his grandson Eric will give us his perspective on a man he admired greatly and his lasting impact on the Southwest. Lots to fit into one show. Hope I am up for the challenge. Please join me to find out! This show sponsored by The Fairfax Companies.
One Earth Designs CEO Scot Frank tells host Sarah Todd the story of his decision to develop a solar powered cooker to help save a potential billion lives in China, India and Southeast Asia. Rural villagers in these areas have no access to electricity and many are dying of pollution from the solid fuels they must use. One Earth's SolSource solar cooker weighs about 20kg and can boil a quart of water in 10 minutes. Costs for rural villagers the company targets will be largely supplemented by government and other organizations.
While it started as a nonprofit, One Earth leaders Scot Frank and Catlin Powers quickly realized that to reach the huge areas they were targeting, a for-profit model was needed to sustain outreach. If it meets it goal of $45 million in sales within just a few years, One Earth Designs could save almost a billion lives with its products. Since its founding,
One Earth Designs’ work has been recognized by the Dutch Postcode Lottery Green Challenge, St. Andrews Prize for the Environment, MIT $100k Competition, Clinton Global Initiative, Legatum Center for Development and Entrepreneurship, US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and Yunus Innovation Challenge.
Scot also discusses his evolution as a leader of social change enterprises. His designs have won many prestigious awards for innovation since he graduated from MIT as an electrical engineer. He holds three patents, has founded three companies, and worked in IBM’s India Research Laboratory, led MIT Development Lab’s China program, administered the MIT Global Village Project, and advised on renewable energy projects for the Clinton Global Initiative and Richard Branson’s Carbon War Room. He has been listed by Forbes as a 30 under 30 entrepreneur.
