Climate Radio, a press agency and a temporary FM radio station
serving the worldwide community radio stations
On the occasion of COP22, the UN conference on climate change in November 2016 in Marrakech (Morocco), AMARC, World Association of Community Radio Broadcasters, launches Climate Radio.
Climate Radio is a temporary press agency to community radio stations worldwide.
Environmental discussions, climate solutions, social, economic and cultural news… Sixteen journalists from at least ten countries are on site to produce stories, journalistic papers and broadcasts in Arabic, English, French, Spanish, Amazigh (published by Creative Commons CC-BY-NC).
Climate Radio is also an temporary FM radio station on the city of Marrakech. The goal is to experience the first community broadcasting on Moroccan FM (subject to the granting of this license by the Moroccan media regulatory authorities). An online broadcasting allows radio stations and listeners to listen programs.
Climate Radio is coordinated by AMARC, in partnership with the FMAS, with the support of the Maghreb UNESCO office in the framework of the «Network of Mediterranean Youth» project (NET-MED Youth) funded by the European Union. The initiative is developed in partnership with the Civil Society COP22 coordinating committee.
Thanks to Climate Radio experience , AMARC and its members are increasing their presence and journalistic coverage expertise at international high level summits, always at the service of communities and their radios.
It is not necessary to be a member of AMARC to broadcast Climate Radio productions.
