The Radio Manifesto

Three years of discussions and workshops by children and youth around the world have resulted in a new international document, The Radio Manifesto, launched at the 4th World Summit on Media & Children in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, April 19-23, 2004.

The Radio Manifesto began in 2001 with youth radio broadcasters at Bush Radio in Cape Town, South Africa. Since then, the World Radio Forum has helped young broadcasters in other countries in Africa and the rest of the world to develop the text of their Radio Manifesto. Youth 8 to 18 years of age contributed from townships, remote villages, and the streets of capital cities, together with the new young citizens of emerging democracies. Their Manifesto proclaims strongly to radio authorities the rights, needs, and hopes of young people everywhere.
