Following on nicely from my recent blog post about the Hive, a local environmental youth project which has done great things with plans for an Earthship, due to the enthusiasm and dedication of the young people involved…
A programme on Radio 4 was aired this week (on 4 and 5 May 2011) about greening teenagers, following the announcement of a study by the University of Birmingham. The experiments will look at whether teenagers leading the way, or do they consume more energy than other demographics, with computer games, TVs and other energy intensive gadgets? How can teenagers be encouraged to care about the environment – if this encouragement is needed?
It’s available to listen to on BBC iplayer and is only 30 minutes – take a look. It’ll be available for at least a week I imagine, maybe longer if you’re lucky! The programme is part of the regular ‘Costing the Earth’ series.
