The series are composed of a variety of new media formats including educational audio- and video-podcasts, text, and pictures, They are broadcasted online (on websites and in social media) as well as through local Roma radio programs in a number of European countries.

The programs are produced in Romani and English, as well as in the main language of the local region that each program is made in or about.
