UNESCO invites all radio stations and supporting organizations to join us for World Radio Day 2018, a chance to highlight the critical mission of radio as a medium for connecting, empowering and informing communities through the lens of sports broadcasting.
The alliance of radio and sports is a force for civic participation and development, as well as for celebrating humanity and pluralism. The traditional sports that connect us to our cultural heritage, the grassroots sports that anchor us within our communities, and the inspiring stories that challenge gender stereotypes. It is essential to identify and highlight the impact radio can have in shaping this alliance and the wider impact this has in celebrating and encouraging freedom of expression in individuals.

Radio and sports have the power to build and unite communities, encourage respect and inclusion and promote the universal values of non-violence, solidarity and tolerance.
