New resource: Community Media: A Good Practice Handbook
14th Feb 2012
Among its activities to mark World Radio Day 2012, UNESCO has launched a new good practice handbook with case studies of community media from around the world. The publication draws on a diversity of experiences to provide inspiration and support for those engaged in community media practice and advocacy and to raise awareness and understanding of community media among policy makers and other stakeholders.
13 February has been proclaimed by UNESCO as a date to celebrate radio broadcast, improve international cooperation among radio broadcasters and encourage decision-makers to create and provide access to information through radio.
Community Media: A Good Practice Handbook is a compilation of 30 community radio and other community media examples demonstrating successful approaches to strengthening public voice.
