THIS YEAR’S TOPICS WILL INCLUDE:
Ted Howard is a social entrepreneur and author. He is the founder and Executive Director of The Democracy Collaborative at the University of Maryland and serves as the Minter Senior Fellow for Social Justice with the Cleveland Foundation. For more than 30 years, Howard has worked for non-profit organizations including UN agencies and The Hunger Project. Howard is the architect of the green jobs and wealth building strategy launched in Cleveland, OH known as the Evergreen Cooperatives. Characterized in many press accounts as "The Cleveland Model," Evergreen is an effort to create green jobs in low-income neighborhoods using the purchasing power of the City's anchor institutions (hospitals, universities, etc.) to create local worker cooperative businesses. The program has received international attention from media outlets including The Economist, Al Jazeera, BusinessWeek, and Time. In 2010, Utne Reader magazine named Howard as one of the “25 Visionaries Who Are Changing Your World” for his foundation of the Democracy Collaborative.
