Changemakers Without Borders

Example is not the main thing in influencing others. It is the only thing.

Albert Schweitzer, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, humanitarian doctor, philosopher and author

Changemakers Without Borders is hosted by May Cooper on Radio Waterloo, CKMS, as well as on Peach City Radio, CFUZ in Penticton, BC. You can also find Changemakers on her home site, where you can even leave a voice message!

What is Changemakers?

Changemakers Without Borders is a spoken-word episodic interview and biographical podcast that explores changemakers in our history who’ve made a positive change in our world, and through these stories, hopefully inspire us to be changemakers in our own lives.

I also interview current community changemakers who are investing their time to better their surroundings, and who take true action to make a positive difference.

My Approach

I take a more personal slant in my show to demonstrate that every leader in our history was, in fact, human. Despite each and every one of us having a difficult challenge to overcome, we can seek encouragement from these personal stories, and allow them to propel us forward.

The knowledge of leader’s triumphs can aid us in our present and future so that we can seek to become more responsible and innovative stewards of our future, and only allow the positive aspects of history’s leaders to shine through.

Changemakers Without Borders airs on CKMS Wednesdays from 8:00am to 8:30am
