About Eco Living in Action


Maureen Howard from Dunedin, New Zealand, hosts a half-hour sustainable living radio show called Eco Living in Action that is aired on Otago Access Radio 105.4FM every Thursday from 2.30pm -3pm and repeated the following Monday 8.30-9am. “Join me as I chat with a different guest each week about their sustainability activities and initiatives. From advice on building tiny houses, to setting up a rooftop garden, to wildlife friendly farming practices – my guests from Dunedin and from my travels are passionate individuals who are making a difference. Listen in, and get inspired – as Ghandi says – to Be the change you want to see in the world.”

Achievements: In 2013, Eco Living in Action was awarded the PSA Supreme Trophy with Otago Access Radio, and also was awarded Winner of the Special Interest Category. In 2015, the show was awarded Most Popular Podcast.
