The Hummingbirds from Belgrade
13 February is World Radio Day — a day to celebrate radio as a medium; to improve international cooperation between broadcasters; and to encourage major networks and community radio alike to promote access to information, and free, independent and pluralistic media.
As UNESCO prepares to celebrate the fourth edition of World Radio Day, to be held on February 13, 2015. The theme for this fourth edition is “Youth and Radio”. It represents an important opportunity to evaluate the contribution of young cheap flagyl people in the radio sector with the goal of increasing their participation along three levels:
- Youth-targeted programming.
- Programmes including young people at the production level.
- Finally and most importantly, programming devised and produced by young people.
The organizers have proposed some subthemes that are designed to offer a wide array of opportunities for discussion and to lend themselves to interesting and informative programming:
- The elimination of stereotypes and prejudice in the portrayal of young people in the media.
- Improving the security of young journalists, especially freelancers and fixers in conflict and disaster zones.
- The impact of young people on community radio (education, acculturation, coverage of conflicts not being covered by the wider media, emergency and humanitarian crises, etc).
- The link between the accessibility of information through radio amongst young people and the sustainable development of communities.
