Following on from many calls fro P2P education: could an educational radio programme be developed which actually has children involved in announcing and devising stories? Could segments be recorded in various locations taking in local stories made by children on particular themes such as social issues, politics, agriculture, technology and sustainability. There could be instructional segments on stuff like Arvind Gupta's Toys from Trash:, once again announced by children. Possibly there could be downloadable podcasts of segments for those that could access them – but the main thrust would be via radio which has wide reach.

If children were part of the team that devised and delivered the show, I'm sure there would be no shortage of great material and ideas.
