Remote Radio Week begins next Monday

A week devoted to helping radio stations broadcast remotely begins this Monday 1st November.

The special week will bring a program of virtual events and talks from experts from around the world to help stations that need to shift to remote delivery due to Covid and other emergencies.

Organized by UNESCO in partnership with WHO, Remote Radio Week is an online training program aimed at building the capacity of local radio stations to produce accurate and professional radio content in the event of containment measures or emergencies, including financial difficulties.

The program, which will also be available on demand, will cover the several thematic areas, with particular reference to the pandemic crisis.

The program targets radio operators, professionals and managers worldwide with a particular attention to the needs of local radio stations.

Remote Radio Week will propose distinct program in English, French, Spanish and Arabic during the day, featuring experts, examples, debates and technical tips for the audience.

The online event has the goal of supporting the mission and operations of radio stations located on five different continents.

It consists of an online program that provides information on how to:

  • Train station staff to work remotely (e.g. studio, broadcast, IP, cloud, social networks, and DIY equipment, etc.)
  • Promote credible and trustworthy radio journalism and public service efforts (reliable information, disinformation, media and information literacy, social links, etc.)
  • Manage a radio station in times of crisis (e.g. human, economic aspects, social/strategic role, etc.)

Five themes will be delivered across the week. View the full program here.
