In the frame of the AMARC Global Campaign Fund, the World Association of Community Radio Broadcasters (AMARC) wishes to highlight how the poorest and most marginalized populations in various regions of the world are touched by climate change, global warming and pollution. This international radio series will focus the political, economical and societal aspects of climate change and will also address disaster prevention and management. From mid-October to December, AMARC will feature the selected productions on its website and will promote them amongst partner's channels, networks and on social media in order to improve public education, encourage knowledge sharing and dissemination of scientific information on climate and engage discussion among communities.
Structured around various themes such as climate change, rural development, gender equality, cultural and linguistic minorities, Indigenous peoples and other social, economic and political issues, these radio campaigns will aim to highlight the importance of the work of community radio as the voice of communities. In addition, they will relay on a global scale, the quality and diversity of the network’s voices.
From September 14 to 15, representatives of the World Association of Community Radio Broadcasters (AMARC) are in Paris at the invitation of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) to participate in the international seminar "Community Media Sustainability: Strengthening Policies and Funding".
