- A brief presentation of World Radio Day, how it was created and adopted and the main themes that have been celebrated up until now
- A role of media as well as a role of UNESCO in the integration of persons with disabilities through its communication and information programs and activities.
The latest point was the main subject of the discussion. Multiple dialogues of the UNESCO staff with the audience of the radio channel contained opinions of the people about the subject, sharing ideas, etc. The audience showed a big interest in learning more about UNESCO, its mission, its programs, its activities, - with special attention to those ones, which are targeted to persons with disabilities. All contributions from the Sudanese people were rather very positive towards UNESCO.
