Welcome to Day Three of the Parallel Lives programme.
In celebration of the 100th episode of the Decentered Media Podcast I’m delighted to support my friend & colleague Rob Watson for a day of online discussion and best-practice sharing as part of the UNESCO World Radio Day
This year World Radio Day is divided into three main sub-themes:
- EVOLUTION: The world changes, radio evolves – This sub-theme refers to the resilience of the radio, to its sustainability.
- INNOVATION: The world changes, radio adapts and innovate – Radio has had to adapt to new technologies to remain the go-to medium of mobility, accessible everywhere and to everyone.
- CONNECTION: The world changes, radio connects – This sub-theme highlights radio’s services to our society—natural disasters, socio-economic crises, epidemics, etc.

Fascinating conversations taking place today from a real mix of people involved in community radio. Such a vibrant medium that makes a real difference to peoples lives but doesn’t get the recognition it deserves.
