Calling all African farm radio broadcasters! Join us for an exciting Barza Discussion on interactive radio from February 20 to March 17, 2017.

Broadcasters know it best. Radio stations don’t just provide information. When radio is done well, it has the power to give listeners a sense of community and creatively address the issues that matter most to listeners. Interactive radio engages in 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 20, 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 20 to March 17, 2017 for a facilitated discussion on the Barza Discussions platform. The discussions will be held in both English and French.
