There are many academic and theoretical words on sustainable life style around. However much percentage of people doesn't know what it is and how useful it is for people and nature. Less percentage of people study and think on it, write about it in articles, speak in huge congress hall, make some decision to survive it etc... Majority of society either has not heard anything about it or has just heard only its name. 

This project aimed to announce what the sustainable life and its components are by using a large-spreaded radio broadcasting over Turkey.

Main part of audience is generally following meteorological weather and marine forecast for their region because of they are cultivating crops, raising livestock and fishing. To talk about renewable energy, greenhouse gasses and global warming effects audience positively in the name of awareness on world or earth problems. This method is like a subliminal message for people who's main goal is listening weather reports and some musics between reports. Lots of people write and give a call to Yeşil Radyo programmer about subject discussed last programme. These questions and comments are tangible results of Yeşil Radyo initiative.
