World Radio Day 2024

Join JFI Radio and other members around the world celebrating World Radio Day 2024!

What is World radio day?

World Radio Day is a UNESCO International Day celebrated on 13 February every year since it was adopted in 2011.

World Radio Day is an opportunity to celebrate radio as a medium. It is a chance to promote international cooperation between radio broadcasters, to encourage major networks and local radio stations to foster access to information and freedom of expression.

World Radio Day has a number of objectives, namely: to raise awareness among the general public and the media about the value of public service audio; to encourage decision makers to promote free, independent, pluralistic radio and to strengthen networking and international cooperation between broadcasters.

What's happening this year?

The theme this year for World Radio Day is 

Radio: A century informing, entertaining and educating.

Three services that radio provides are informing, entertaining, and educating. Radio is a great educator covering all from basic education to a wide range of academic disciplines, reaching people in many diverse geographical areas.

JFI Radio focuses on educating managers, leaders and HR professionals about training, learning, development, organisational learning, and quality improvement leading to business excellence.
