AMARC - Asia Pacific Community Radio Training Forum 2011:

17 to 19 November 2011, Bangkok, Thailand

The 1st AMARC Asia Pacific Community Radio Training Forum for "Enhancing Impact of Community Broadcasting" will be held in Bangkok, Thailand from 17 to 19 November 2011.

The capacity building mega event will provide opportunity to community radio broadcasters of Asia Pacific to network with and learn from international trainers and experts about setting up community radio stations, promoting community participation, program production, production technology, and advocacy strategies for improving conditions for the development of community broadcasting.

The Training Forum will resemble a people's university where the participants can take different subjects. Outcomes of the Training Forum will have concrete productions that the participants will take home, and broadcast in their radio stations, such as radio jingles, dramas, features, interviews etc.

Announcing the Training Forum, President of AMARC Asia Pacific Ashish Sen has said that the Forum is a direct response to the capacity building needs of AMARC members in the Asia Pacific region as outlined in the AMARC Asia Pacific Regional Conference in Bangalore, India and the AMARC10 Global Conference in La Plata, Argentina. It directly addresses the key objectives of the development priorities and activity plans of community broadcasters and their partners in the region.

The AMARC Asia Pacific Community Radio Training Forum will promote gender sensitivity, strengthen community broadcasting for poverty reduction, and enhance the capacity of community broadcasters to address climate change and disaster preparedness. Sharing of ideas and learning of skills will be based on specific thematic streams so that broadcasters can directly apply their learning to address the concerns of the communities in the Asia Pacific region such as food security, right to information, good governance, empowering women, improving literacy, generating employment opportunities, improving local governance, and promoting the rights of the marginalised.

In addition to explaining concepts and principles, the Training Forum will include practical subjects such as research techniques, script writing, interviewing, editing, and using digital recording and computer based editing.

The 1st AMARC Asia Pacific Community Radio Training Forum for Enhancing Impact of Community Broadcasting will be participated by community radio leaders who will be given the opportunity to enhance their skills and be able to go back to their community and pass on the knowledge and skills acquired to their colleagues. Approximately 150 participants including members, associates, partners, donors, scholars and representatives of the civil society will participat
