INTRODUCTION

The First International Radio Encounter aims to provide an international forum for radio experts and youth to exchange ideas, for professional development and develop best practices. SIGNIS World Radio Desk has identified the need to promote Radio and its different variants, such as mobile applications, as a tool for evangelization around the world, in particular, as an essential media for the poor and marginalized.

SIGNIS ASIA RADIO DESK TRAINING 2022

We held the valuable and very useful SIGNIS Asia Radio Desk Training on 1-7 August 2016 in Indonesia and 5-9 November 2018 in the Philippines. By the results and there are so many possibilities, opportunities and challenges we can undertake as a group. A vibrant spirit indeed. As we cannot handle all tasks for implementation, we look to many of our young participants to get themselves involved and make the forthcoming Radio Desk Assembly young and dynamic. Hence, we suggest this theme: “Engaging the Youth for a Dynamic Radio Uniting Asia and the World”.

Therefore, SIGNIS ASIA and the World Radio Desks agreed to hold the First International Radio Encounter with the theme: “Engaging the Youth for a Dynamic Radio Uniting Asia and the World” which will be held on May 9-12, 2022 in Sri Lanka. SIGNIS ASIA participants will have a meeting face to face, nevertheless participants from other regions will participate in this program via zoom or YouTube (hybrid system).
