Project 17 is an ambitious new radio and podcast series co-produced by the BBC World Service and The Open University which will take listeners to 17 different countries around the world, to meet seventeen 17 year-olds and find out how, and if, their lives are really changing.

Starting January 20th, Lanre speaks to teachers, other teenagers, the former UN Special Rapporteur on extreme poverty and an influential member of Britain’s ruling Conservative Party, to find out why poverty still affects so many people in one of the world’s richest countries.
