4th AMARC Pan African Conference Starts

general assembly

The 4th AMARC Pan African Conference is just started and immediately appeared to be a very useful occasion to get in touch with Radio broadcasters here in Abidjan. What’s better to spend time around a table talking, and most of all, listening to people involved everyday in radio broadcasting?

Thanks to a very good wifi access, I spent the morning twittering impressions on the speeches of the Opening session.

And, as far as I can, I’ll keep on doing that because it seems to be more sustainable than blogging. After the Conference, or late at night, I’ll try resume my thoughts and learnings on this blog.

4th AMARC Pan African Conference

I’m very happy to participate to the AMARC Africa’s 4th Pan African Conference!

At the Conference, AMARC will gather its members, community radio stakeholders and relevant partner organizations to discuss the challenges of community radio in Africa. In his invitation, Marcelo Solervicens, Secretary General of AMARC, is eager to stimulate further collaboration between the major partners.

In particular, the Conference will be an excellent opportunity to follow-up on the technical consultation workshop organized jointly in Rome last year on the theme of “Independent, Rural and Community Radios” being other partners like Dimitra and Farm Radio International also invited.

My presence is intended to strengthen relationships with Radio broadcasters and the AMARC representatives in Africa and also to explore concrete possibilities to establish new partnerships in the field of rural radios. During the Conference it will be possible to learn more about habits, attitudes and needs of radio broadcasters in terms of: content needed, communication flows among members, computer literacy and use of ICTs.

The information collected and the relationships created during the event will allow a deeper knowledge of the communication needs of the AMARC members and will help the knowledge sharing process among partners.
