Youth have their say in radioListen /
Young people have a lot to say, but in many communities they do not have a forum to talk about their challenges, to voice their concerns, or to share their stories.
According to UNESCO, over the past 10 years youth radio projects have been popping up across the world in various shapes and forms. From Bolivia to Bangladesh, New York to New Delhi, and Kinshasa to Kuala Lumpur, radio stations are seeing the benefits of getting youth on the airwaves. By putting young people in the driver’s seat, they are creating opportunities for dialogue and growing their youth audiences.
UN Radio spoke to Mirta Lourenco, Chief of Media and Society in UNESCO’s Freedom of Expression and Media Development Department and first asked her what is the relationship between media and society.
