World Radio Day 2013

13 February is World Radio Day — a day to celebrate radio as  a medium; to improve international cooperation between broadcasters; and to  encourage major networks and community radio alike to promote access to  information and freedom of expression over the airwaves.

As radio continues to evolve in the digital age, it remains  the medium that reaches the widest audience worldwide. This multi-purpose medium  can help people, including youth, to engage in discussions on topics that affect  them. It can save lives during natural or human-made disasters; and it provides  journalists with a platform to report facts and tell their stories.

UNESCO encourages all countries to celebrate World Radio Day  by planning activities in partnership with regional, national and international  broadcasters, non-governmental organizations, the media and the public.

Throughout these web pages, you will find a wealth of  resources that you can use free of charge and without copyright restriction to  help plan your World Radio Day event.

Let’s celebrate!
