UNESCO’s radio toolkit – Linking Generations through Radio – is inspired by the children and youth who make up one-third of the world’s population. The majority may listen to radio, but they are not often invited to produce interviews and programs, express their needs for information, or their opinions about children’s and youth programming.
Children and young people are an important segment of radio audiences. This 62-page radio toolkit provides examples which help broadcasters promote free exchange of ideas between girls and boys. It also highlights ethical and legal requirements which radio producers and managers must be aware of when working with minors.
The toolkit can serve as a regular training or programming handbook for radio stations, a reference and resource for young people, and an advocacy tool to inform policymakers and the general public.
