Audio message from Ms Irina Bokova, Director-General of UNESCO to be recorded in English/Russian/French and Spanish on the occasion of World Radio Day
13 February 2012
The world is changing profoundly — but the marvel of radio remains as striking as ever. Radio is the mass medium that reaches the widest audience, especially the most marginalised parts of our societies. UNESCO works every day to support radio as a tool for peace — as a space for sharing, for dialogue and for debate. Free, independent and pluralistic radio is essential for healthy societies, it is vital for advancing human rights and fundamental freedoms. Today, it is not enough to communicate — we must connect people and societies more deeply. Radio is one of the most powerful ways to build bridges of respect and understanding. On this first World Radio Day, let us celebrate this power and make the most of it!
