UNESCO convenes Experts Consultation on Good Practices in Community Media

Community media researchers, practitioners, network leaders and representatives from associations / organizations worldwide are participating in the "Experts Consultative Meeting on Good Practices in Community Media" being held from 9-11 February 2009 at the UNESCO Headquarters in Paris.

UNESCO is the lead UN agency in promoting freedom of expression and universal access to information and knowledge.

UNESCO recognizes that community-based media ensure media pluralism, diversity of content, and the representation of a society’s different groups and interests. Community media encourage open dialogue and transparency of administration at local level and offer voice to the voiceless. They are established on the concepts of public access, sharing experiences and information.

The consultation is being organized in line with UNESCO's goals to focus on identifying good community media practices throughout the world, especially in the domain of legislation, funding mechanisms / entrepreneurship options, technology choices, management and ownerships, programming, codes of practice, sustainable models, access, participation and other issues.

The good practices identified and elaborated as a result of the consultation will be shared through a framework. The meeting will also draw up a list of resource people/authors who are working in this field.
