The 11th International Assembly of the World Association of Community Radio Broadcasters (AMARC) held in Accra, Ghana, from August 10-14, 2015, was attended by 260 participants from 50 countries worldwide. The international organization has profoundly renewed its Board of administrators and elected to the presidency Emmanuel Boutterin, who wished to "make AMARC into a great organization of the 21st century, stronger, meaningful and able to carry the voices of youth, women, indigenous peoples and indigenous cultures through community radio stations worldwide."
More than 260 participants from nearly 50 different countries, from all continents, met in Accra, Ghana on the occasion of the 11th International Conference of the World Association of Community Radio Broadcasters (AMARC) since this morning and until August 14 at the invitation of the Ghana Community Radio Network (GCRN).
Since the General Assembly held in La Plata, Argentina, in 2010, the World Association of Community Radio Broadcasters (AMARC) is working to support minority languages and cultures as an essential aspect of the identity of community radio stations and the communities they represent. Once again this year, we invite you to take the opportunity of this important Day to demonstrate your commitment by sharing with AMARC your audio productions on the theme selected by the UN or on issues affecting indigenous peoples.
