Broadcast Campaign for International Women’s Day: Women Empowerment, Struggle against Climate Change and Democratization of SocietiesPublished by Anonymous on Tue, 03/13/2012 - 12:05
Montreal, March 13, 2012. The Women’s International Network of the World Association of Community Radio Broadcasters (AMARC-WIN) organized the 8th annual International Women’s Day Broadcast Campaign. The theme of this year was “Women Empowerment and the Struggle against Climate Change and for the Democratization of Societies”. All the programs from this year and past years are available for download on our web site, please visit: http://www2.amarc.org/?q=node/370. We encourage you to rebroadcast the programs to your communities!
AMARC-WIN believes that women can be active agents of change when they can express themselves. They should take on leadership roles in leading their countries and communities towards long-term sustainable development, fight against climate change and democratization of their societies. In the road to Rio+20, AMARC-WIN would like to build on its local capacity and expertise to generate more support for Women’s active participation in sustainable development processes, against climate change and democratization of societies. Through the international broadcast campaign, we hope to stimulate discussions about women’s role in ameliorating their livelihoods, in shaping long-term sustainable community development and to confront the crisis created by climate change. We hope that this multilingual broadcast campaign contributed to the discussion on these issues and in identifying practical as well as long-term solutions.

Community radio producers from Asia-Pacific, Middle East, Africa, Europe, North America and Latin America and the Caribbean participated in this broadcast campaign. Radio stations from around the globe are invited to download the audio files from the AMARC-WIN 8 March website and broadcast them in their radio stations.
The eighth Annual Women’s International Day broadcast campaign featured programming in English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Nepali, and Guarani, among other languages.
