Listen to the entire show
Welcome to the Radio Workshop Podcast!
Today’s podcast has been created in partnership with Unicef’s “Unite for Climate” campaign. On it, we’ll hear young people in Zambia and around the world talking about climate change — what it is to them, how it affects their lives, and what they’re doing about it. We’ll also hear their advice to the world’s leaders coming together at the end of November for the COP16 meeting in Mexico.

Welcome to the show!
Radio Workshop host Mbali Vilakazi welcomes listeners to the show.
The Radio Workshop broadcasts every Saturday at 12 noon on SAFM. Visit SAFM’s website for information about how to find their frequency in your area.
First we’ll hear recommendations from youth climate ambassadors to the world’s leaders at last year’s COP15. But what is COP, you may ask? We talk about this and other ABC’s of climate change.
We’d love to hear from you—send us an email at email@example.com!

Spreading the message

18 year-old Tambudzai Mutale interviews a local priest in Mongu about what the church is doing to help fight climate change.
Message to the World’s Leaders
15 year-old Luyando Katenda isn’t pleased with the results of COP15, and implores the world’s leaders to make responsible choices at COP16.
Children’s Climate Forum: committed
You may have already listened to the first half of the audio declaration by the youth at last year’s Children’s Climate Forum, requesting action from their leaders. Let’s hear what commitments they themselves are willing to make to fight climate change.
That’s it for this week, join us next week for more from the Radio Workshop. We hope you’ve enjoyed the show!
