On February 6-9, 2019, the Faculty of Journalism of the Al-Farabi Kazakh National University organizes the VI International Winter School of Journalism and Communication "Radio – Tolerance, Dialogue and Peace" dedicated to World Radio Day.

Since 2014, the Faculty of Journalism of the Al-Farabi Kazakh National University, with the support of the UNESCO Cluster Office of Almaty, has been holding the International Winter School of Journalism and Communication, which has become media dialogue platform between students and practicing journalists.

This year the theme of the World Radio Day announced by UNESCO is Dialogue, Tolerance and Peace with subthemes:

  • Promoting Dialogue and Participation - Broadcasts that provide a platform for dialogue and democratic debate over issues, such as migration or violence against women, can help to raise awareness among listeners and inspire understanding for new perspectives in paving the way for positive action.
  • Uniting Under Common Concerns - Radio programming can also build tolerance and surpass the differences separating groups by uniting them under common goals and causes, like ensuring education for one’s children or addressing local health concerns.

The participation of lecturers, journalists, scientists, teachers and students of France, New Zealand, Afghanistan, Russia, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Karakalpakstan and Kazakhstan is expected to take part in the Winter School.
