EBU World Radio Day

"Radio provides a convenient way to encounter new ideas, new music and new ways of thinking, and also provides valuable company to counter isolation and loss. World Radio Day provides a great opportunity to reflect on the power of radio."

Graham Dixon, EBU Head of Radio

Radio stations are encouraged to create broadcasts that provide a platform for dialogue and democratic debate over issues, such as migration or violence against women, helping to raise awareness among listeners and inspire understanding for new perspectives in paving the way for positive action.

Radio programming can also build tolerance and overcome differences separating communities by uniting them for common goals and causes, like ensuring children’s education or addressing local health concerns.

For this year’s edition, we are partnering with One Day One Choir and offering a package to radio stations around the world including:

  • Recordings of songs that celebrate peace.
  • Radio Voices and Stories for Peace: written material which can be used to showcase the role of radio in promoting peace.
  • A list of songs that celebrate peace, dialogue and tolerance which can be used on air.

Join us this World Radio Day 2019 to celebrate the impact of radio in pursuing a more peaceful and tolerant world.
