Summary
A day to raise greater awareness among the public and the media on the importance of radio.

World Radio Day was proclaimed at the 36th session of UNESCO’s General Conference in 2011 to take place on each 13 February. It was then unanimously endorsed by the United Nations General Assembly in 2012 as a UN Day. The 13 February was specifically chosen for World Radio Day as United Nations Radio was established on this date in 1946.

The Day aims to raise greater awareness among the public and the media on the importance of radio, to encourage decision-makers to establish and provide access to information through radio, and to enhance networking and international cooperation among broadcasters.
