2017 World Radio Day: The Radio is you

13 February 2017

The 2017 edition of the World Radio Day was organised around the slogan “Radio is you”. As a member of the organizing committee of the WRD, last 13 February COPEAM invited its associated radios to set up a number of actions aimed at promoting the peculiarities of radio and its impact on the audiences’ daily life. On that occasion, a special number of Kantara was produced and aired by the partners.

The concerned broadcasters also planned ad-hoc programmes in line with the annual topic and produced short reportages focused on their own newsrooms, in order to show to the public the internal functioning of their trusted and community medium.


The international WRD committee will gather on June 16, at the UNESCO’s headquarters in Paris, to make an assessment of the activities organised for the 2017 edition and to share proposals and suggestions concerning next celebration in 2018.
