Children Radio team currently consisting of teachers reaches out to homes, teachers, and community members via phone calls and visits and ask them to share their experiences within the current crisis, talk about their suggestions for learning activities, their needs, and proposals for creative solutions to sustain and to overcome difficult times in solidarity.
Children are encouraged through the format of Radio/Podcast/outdoor Sessions to learn to create and to present content in their local languages and English, also including some words from other languages and developing multilingual competencies: widening opportunities to take a responsible role in their families and create learning home activities from resources they have, such as family traditions, daily life activities, play and art practices, and to share their experiences, interests, needs, visions, and dreams; learn about SDG´s as a part of daily life at individual and community base, create SDG-supportive activities and get inspired by Austrian born artist Hundertwasser a.o for their art-ecological activities.

“The child shall have the right to freedom of expression; this right shall include freedom to seek, receive and impart information and ideas of all kinds, regardless of frontiers, either orally, in writing or in print, in the form of art, or through any other media of the child's choice.”
Radio is an excellent medium for children, and we must recognize and respect their right to accessible programming. Every large city with over 250,000 inhabitants should provide children with access radio content that is both educational and entertaining."
