It’s go time! Radio “Umgedacht” (Rethink) – the youth driven radio program for a sustainable world powered by Generation Earth goes live!
If you missed it – last Friday from 19:00-19:30 – it happened! After months of preparation, our team of 5 Generation Earth members, nicknamed “GERTI” (the Generation Earth Radio Team), got to reap the rewards of our hard work. As the light “on air” flashed outside the studio window, we could be heard LIVE around the world streaming and throughout Vienna on Radio ORANGE 94.0!
On our first program, we gave our listeners a taste of what Generation Earth is all about. We were accompanied by 3 other Generation Earth members, Selin, Martin und Jessi, who enthusiastically told their personal stories of how they found their way to GE, what they’ve done with the group and what projects they are currently working on.
We don’t want to brag, but for our first time on air, we did a pretty good job – minus a few microphone glitches! But hey, nobody’s perfect!
As you might imagine, with 8 people crammed in a small studio, it was quite a sight and a bit packed, but no fear, starting with the next program, we’ll let half of the radio team take a break and listen to the show at home! We’ll invite a new set of guests to be interviewed as well.
In any case, we had a great time and are looking forward to the next time!
Curious to hear what happened on the first program? Find out the secret reason that drove Selin to join Generation Earth. Hear Martin’s story about how Riverwalk came to be and where the next 500+ km journey will take place, and why Jessi wants to get “wild” with young refugees. You can easily stream the program anytime (and as often as you like) and please share it with your friends (eg. Facebook)!
Radio “Umgedacht” can be heard every 2nd Friday of the month. So, what are you waiting for, click on, or tune in to, Radio Orange 94.0 (in Vienna) and be prepared to “rethink” what you think you know about youth, getting active, and sustainable lifestyles!
Our next program will be on February 10, 2017 at 19:00!
