Amidst the online social reporting at SHINE09 I found Max Graef of Radioactive demonstrating the miniaturised radio station he will soon be taking to work with the Kenya Wildlife Service. There in the Tsavo National Park he will be broadcasting to the Masai about how to prevent killing of elephants, stop destructive fires, and other conservation issues.
At SHINE09 Max was interviewing social entrepreneurs about their projects … although this time without broadcasting. He explained that when the 40ft anteana is up the station has a range of about 15-20 miles, and is ideal for areas with low literacy and no electricity.
I last met Max at the graduation day for the School for Social Entrepreneurs, as you see here, with a fine hat acquired on a previous trip.
