Le présent manuel a été conçu pour fournir aux stations de radio locales africaines des connaissances, des outils et des compétences qui leur permettent de faire participer des jeunes à la production d’émissions. Son objectif est de renforcer les compétences des jeunes en matière de reportage et de production radiophoniques, avec leur participation active. Il fournit également des astuces pour développer des espaces créatifs où les enfants et les adolescents peuvent travailler de façon inventive.
UNESCO’s radio toolkit – Linking Generations through Radio – is an open access document, which is inspired by children and youth who make up one-third of the world’s population. The majority may listen to radio but the likelihood they are invited to regularly produce interviews and programmes, express their information needs or their opinions about productions made for them is very low.
The 62-page radio toolkit provides inclusive examples to allow free exchange of ideas between girls and boys and increase awareness of radio producers and managers about ethical and legal requirements particularly when working with minors. It may serve as a routine training or programming handbook in radio stations, a reference and resource for young people, and an advocacy tool to inform policy makers as well as the general public.
This paper draws on the experience of a participatory video (PV) project conducted in the Rift Valley of Kenya after the 2007–2008 post-election crisis when the country underwent a period of intense ethnic violence. After the ﬁghting reached an end, members of different communities who were now enemies had to return to live together as neighbours. In this case study, the author presents the impact that a collection of PVs created from the work of International Non-Governmental OrganisationMercy Corps for programme evaluation purposes, became a tool for peacebuilding and conﬂict transformation for the youths in the Rift Valley.
