Calling all African farm radio broadcasters! Join us for an exciting Barza Discussion on interactive radio from February 27 to March 24, 2017.

Broadcasters know it best. Radio stations don’t only provide information. When radio is effective, it has the power to give listeners a sense of community and creatively address the issues that matter most to listeners. Interactive radio stimulates a dialogue between broadcasters and farmers.

Do you use text messages to interact with your listeners during live radio shows? Do you phone farmers so you can broadcast their opinions about important agricultural topics on air? These are both interactive ways of using radio to engage farmers.

Farm Radio International is inviting all African broadcasters to participate in a four-week e-discussion, starting February 27, 2017. Whether you’re a pro at interacting with your listeners or need ideas on how to make your shows more interactive, this e-discussion is for you!

In this e-discussion, you will:

  • Discuss what interactive radio is and exchange best practices with fellow broadcasters.
  • Get practical resources and tools you can use to make your radio programs more interactive.
  • Explore how interactive radio can lead to gender equality on the airwaves.

Sign up today and join us from February 27 to March 24, 2017 for a facilitated discussion on the Barza Discussions platform. The discussions will be held in both English and French.

Please note the date change. This event will start one week later than originally planned.
