****Montreal****, June 16, 2013. The International Board of Directors of
the World Association of Community Radio Broadcasters (AMARC) is pleased to
announce that the Eleventh World Assembly of Community Radio Broadcasters
will be held from 1 to 5 December 2013 in Accra, Ghana. The Ghana
Community radio Network (GCRN) will host the second Global conference of
community broadcasters to be held in Africa, where community radios were
born in the 80s and have made an important contribution to development
objectives and good governance.****

AMARC 11 will deepen the international solidarity needed to break the
regulatory and other impediments that prevent Community Radio in Africa
from thriving in Africa. It will also showcase the international
experience, including that of the host country Ghana, that demonstrates
irrefutably why Community Radio is the resource par excellence of the
least voiced to enjoy their birthright to communicate and be counted as
necessary partners for equitable and sustainable global development.****

More than 500 community broadcasters and stakeholders from over 110
countries and all regions of the global community radio movement will
gather at the AMARC 11 Global Conference from 1-5 December 2014 to, among
other issues, improve good practices in community media; explore strategies
to facilitate the establishment of enabling legal environments for
community media development, to define knowledge sharing and capacity
building models for action-research and mentoring; to reinforce content
development leading to social change; to facilitate the inclusion of women
and; to encourage the empowerment of communities through appropriation of
community radio for social justice and sustainable, democratic and
participatory human development.******



Through networking, service to members and project implementation, the
World Association of Community Radio Broadcasters AMARC, brings together a
network of more than 4,000 community radios, Federations, production
centers and community media stakeholders in more than 125 countries. The
main global impact of AMARC since its creation in 1983 has been to
accompany and support the establishment of a world wide community radio
sector that has democratized the media sector. AMARC advocates for the
right to communicate at the international, national, local and neighborhood
levels and defends and promotes the principles and interests of the
community radio movement through solidarity, networking and Cooperation.
