Jakarta station sees democracy drive deliver prize | The Australian

AN Indonesian experiment in promoting democracy and social justice through community news radio has won the world’s most prestigious development prize.

At least part of the E150,000 ($268,000) purse will be used to install solar panels for powering studios and equipment at the network’s Jakarta station, which is known to its listeners as Green Radio due to its environmental focus.
