As avid radio listeners might know, Ö1, perhaps Austria’s most prestigious public radio station, has started an initiative called “Reparatur der Zukunft” (“Repairing the Future”) in which they are looking for ideas, concepts and projects that “detect problems and provide solutions for them”, including the areas of democracy and participation.
According to our understanding, EYP fits that description quite well, so we created a video to be eligible for the project and have since been approached by Ö1 for an interview! We got the chance to present our concept to a radio journalist and will be featured in a four-minute radio report about our organisation that will be broadcast on Wednesday, 1 April 9:30 – we invite you to tune in!
There will also be a listening party on the day, starting at 9:15. This is the link to join the Zoom meeting: https://us04web.zoom.us/j/437073557
Participating in this initiative also gives us the chance of being viable for lots of other cool stuff, like coaching from university experts or even invitations to the European Forum Alpbach.
Here’s the project website on which you can find the video we submitted, as well as all other projects that are participating in the initiative:
The website also features the online player of the radio station, so you can also listen to the programme directly from there; content can be relistened for seven days!
