RADIO IS YOU – World Radio Day 2017

[:en]World Radio Day is now in its 6th year!

UNESCO and AMARC invites all radio stations and supporting organisations to join us for World Radio Day 2017, a chance to celebrate radio and how it helps shape our lives!

Radio is still the most dynamic, reactive and engaging medium there is, adapting to 21st century changes and offering new ways to interact and participate. Where social media and audience fragmentation can put us in media bubbles of like-minded people, radio is uniquely positioned to bring communities together and foster positive dialogue for change. By listening to its audiences and responding to their needs, radio provides the diversity of views and voices needed to address the challenges we all face.

Radio informs us and transforms us, through entertainment, information and audience participation.  Having a radio means you are never alone – you always have a friend in radio.

In Bangladesh 12 Bangladesh Betar (Radio) regional stations and 17 Community Radio stations in rural Bangladesh decided to organize colorful rally and seminar on the occasion.
