This year’s World Radio Day is divided into three main sub-themes:

  • Evolution. The world changes, radio evolves. 
    This sub-theme refers to the resilience of the radio, to its sustainability ;
  • Innovation. The world changes, radio adapts and innovate. 
    Radio has had to adapt to new technologies to remain the go-to medium of mobility, accessible everywhere and to everyone;
  • Connection. The world changes, radio connects.
    This sub-theme highlights radio’s services to our society—natural disasters, socio-economic crises, epidemics, etc.

Hosted by UNESCO, World Radio Day was first celebrated in 2012, following its declaration by the UNESCO General Conference. It was subsequently adopted as an International Day by the United Nations General Assembly. Previous themes have included gender equality, youth participation, radio in humanitarian and disaster situations, and radio is you. In past years, World Radio Day has seen wide success, with more than 500 events taking place around the globe.
