World Radio Day Marathon 2022

On 13 February, a radiomarathon will take place from 10 a.m. to 10 commemorate World Radio Day on Rodon FM 95.
The associations Praxis Greece, from Serres, United Society of the Balkans, from Thessaloniki, and Unesco club of Serres, will collaborate together to carry out this event. In this activity volunteers from different parts of Europe work together to raise awareness on the importance of the radio in society.

During the day, each of them will present one-hour programmes in which they will talk about different topics e.g. Active youth participation, Video surveillance, youth unemployment in Europe and corruption are some of the topics to be discussed this Sunday. Of course, they will also do a program together to inform and converse about World Radio Day between 3 and 5 o’clock. “I’m excited for tomorrow, it is going to be a unique experience with people from different countries and backgrounds to raise awareness of the importance of the radio”, said Cece, one of the young volunteers.

According to a study carried out in 2021 in the European Union, radio is the medium in which citizens have the most confidence, with 58%. Other media, such as the written press and television, had a trust rate of 51%.
This year, UNESCO has focused the celebration of World Radio Day on the importance of maintaining that trust in radio journalism. “Radio is a powerful medium for celebrating humanity in all its diversity and constitutes a platform for democratic discourse”, declares Unesco.
