In the lead-up to UNESCO World Radio Day on February 13, Archbishop Desmond Tutu speaks about the value of giving young people radio as a medium to share their thoughts and experiences.
UNESCO is committed to the development of free, independent and pluralistic media. Media should reflect social diversity, including children and youth. It is estimated that a third of the world’s population is under 18 years’ old.
The Children’s Radio Foundation teaches young broadcasters to interview, research, and ask good questions. Through learning the skills of radio, they also grow their communication skills, critical thinking skills, gain confidence, and broaden their horizons.
