RIG invites you to be part of Radio Everyone

The Radio Independents Group is inviting audio production companies from across the UK to pitch ideas for Radio Everyone.

Radio Everyone is a seven day pop-up global radio station which will raise awareness of the 2015 Global Goals for Sustainable Development.

The aim of Project Everyone, initiated by screenwriter Richard Curtis, is to get the global goals to ‘7 billion people in 7 days’ after they are announced at the United Nations on 25th September,

Every world leader will commit to the new Goals, which aim to eradicate extreme poverty, tackle inequality and reverse the threats faced from climate change over the next 15 years.

Radio Everyone, outlined by Richard Curtis at last year’s Radio Festival, aims ‘to exploit radio’s unique position as the world’s most accessible medium and harness the collective power of radio broadcasters to communicate the goals to people across the world’.

RIG members have received the brief from former Radio 1 commissioning editor Piers Bradford, who is seeking ideas to provide extra-special content that broadcasters around the world will want to syndicate, to make the goals famous.

Audio indies can send a one-page ‘expression of interest’ setting out top line thoughts on content and how they could contribute to the project.

RIG MD Will Jackson said: “RIG is pleased to be involved in this project and we know RIG members will be keen to submit ideas. We’re looking for 60-minute long form content, with an eye on stand-alone short form clips. These will be syndicated to a global network of partner radio stations.”

He added: “There is budget available, dependent on production, resource and travel costs. But please note that time is very tight and there are opportunities already available for the right partners, so people need to respond quickly.”
