Parallel Lives

World Radio Day 2021

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.
