During our show on September 19th, host Richard Mabion will speak with Rich Gutowski.  Rich is Founder of Alveare Foundation and Alveare PBC which are focused on regionally placed based community development using public benefit corporations (PBCs) as both the tool of cross sector collaboration and the means of providing sustainable long support for community development work.

August 19, 2022, our Richard Mabion received notification from Michael Regan, EPA Administrator, that Richard will be a member of the National Environmental Justice Advisory Council.  They know how to pick ‘em!

The National Environmental Justice Advisory Council provides advice and recommendations about broad, cross-cutting issues related to environmental justice from all stakeholders involved in the environmental justice dialogue.  We can trust Richard to keep the interests and well-being of those who have endured injustice at the center of his discussions and recommendations.

Alveare Foundation invests in the long-term development of relationships across sector and across urban and suburban regions under the premise the nagging social issues are not the disfunction of one community but a symptom of a silo’ ed system where many well-intentioned people are disempowered from making good decisions. Alveare acts as a field catalyst to build formal and informal relationships.

Listeners may have heard prior shows presented by Richard and Rich on the topic of public benefit corporations (PBCs) and the need to create jobs and skills in low income neighborhoods.  The idea is to raise the standard of living for everyone so that each and every one of us can be comfortable and take pride in our lives.

Today we provide an overview and an update.  We at EcoRadio KC are glad to encourage awareness and protection of our world.  Our goal is to assure our listeners are aware of how we can create a sustainable present for a sustainable future!

This will be a great radio hour!

We hope you can tune in!

George Carlin said “we (meaning people in general) are arrogant to think we (usually meaning they) are a threat to the planet. This planet put up with dinosaurs for 165 million years then waited another 65 million before putting up with people. Do any of you think people, humans, can last 165 million years?”
