There has never been a more important time for our youth to turn information into action. The way we respond to reports about issues like global warming and the food crisis will determine the fate of the world we live in – and how much longer we will even have that privileged. Students in Jakarta are taking the lead in changing the world – one song at a time – with the help of a Radio Ed activity called “Radio Idol.”
Over 150 students and teachers gathered at Green Radio in East Jakarta last week to hear students from SMA3 perform Radio Idol songs that they wrote themselves after listing to news stories from Asia Calling.
