The United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) is inviting all radio stations throughout the globe to participate in the 11th World Radio Day (WRD) on February 13, 2022.
By several worldwide assessments, radio is still one of the most trusted and accessible forms of media in the world. With this, the theme for World Radio Day 2022 is “Radio and Trust.” Three sub-themes are covered in this year’s WRD celebration:
- Trust in radio journalism;
- Trust and accessibility; and
- Trust and viability of radio stations
These activities are in line with radio’s goals to create independent and high-quality journalistic outputs, to serve the information needs of all listeners, and to guarantee competitiveness and sustainability.
