Summary of the project
The project is based on a radio programme made up of 15 episodes with the main objective of raising awareness and sharing expert knowledge related to environmental problems, whilst encouraging habits and behaviours, both individual and collective, which can achieve improvements within the natural environment and biodiversity of Menorca.
The main themes throughout the show are categorised into: fresh water, waste management, responsible consumption and biodiversity.
The programme was developed within the framework of the independent radio project that the association ‘Ràdio Far’ broadcast on its own platform, as well as on its social networks. Ràdio Far is currently working on a new podcast season launching in autumn-winter 2021.
Episodes consist of conversations between interviewees and a presenter on one of the specific themes. The project was carried out by recording podcasts of 12 interviews and 3 sound creations.
To raise awareness of the environmental issues faced on the island and to encourage a change in individual and collective habits and behaviour.
- To educate listeners about the main environmental problems in Menorca within the main themes: fresh water, waste management, responsible consumption and biodiversity.
- To give tools, guidelines and general advice to the population on the possible measures that can be taken both individually and collectively.
- To mitigate the negative effects of certain actions and to promote appropriate and environmentally friendly behaviour.
- To promote local entities, organisations, interest groups and NGOs working to improve Menorca’s natural environment.
