Thailand On Air and Solar Generation, the youth group of Greenpeace today launched Green DJ project which aims to provide aspiring youth the skills of radio broadcasting of environmental information.

The Green DJ (also known as disk jockey, DJ or deejay) program was launched in June to recruit young and aspiring DJ in the beginning of June and has resulted in the selection of five students from different university. The selected young DJs will attend a two-day workshop on 18 and 19 July and will broadcast their first environmental program on 24 July 2009 on Thailand On Air, a youth radio - online station.

"Thai youth have the necessary talents but what they need is learning space to take action and get more experience. This project is aimed to provide them the skills of communication and environmental information by creating their own environmental radio program. It also help generate environmental awareness among youth audience and also provide media space for sharing their idea towards environmental issues," said Khuanchart Dasa, Director of Thailand On Air.

The radio workshop contains basic knowledge of radio production, pronunciation, script writing for radio, live program production and environmental background especially in Climate Change and Energy efficiency issue.       

"As the world reels under the worst impacts of climate change, the need to educate youth and ordinary citizens on the importance personal and collective action to conserve and protect our environment is of utmost urgency. Radio, especially online radio is what the young people of Thailand are tuning into and we hope that our young green dj's will play an important role in encouraging people to help stop global warming," said Pornsiri Cheevapattananuwong, Solar Generation coordinator of Greenpeace Southeast Asia.

The Environmental program is a magazine on air which airs every Friday from 24 July 2009 until 25 December 2009, at 2.00 pm - 3.00 pm. To listen to environment program click on to www.thailandonair.com or 104.25 MHz
