Médecins du monde présente ses actions contre l’exclusion en France

L'ONG Médecins du monde vient d'entamer une campagne au long cours afin de dresser un état des lieux de la précarité et de l'exclusion en France, ainsi qu'un panorama de son travail de proximité auprès des plus démunis. Imaginée par l'agence Meanings et conçue en interne, cette campagne baptisée «Médecins du monde, médecins de tout le monde» s'appuie sur des témoignages sonores, diffusés sur le site de l'ONG ainsi que sur France Info et sur le réseau France Bleu (tous les week-ends jusqu'au 23 juin, puis du 8 septembre au 20 octobre). Ces spots sont complétés, le lundi suivant leur diffusion, par des insertions dans le journal Le Monde ainsi que des bannières.

Message of the UNESCO Director-General | United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization

Message of the UNESCO Director-General | United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization | Radio Hacktive (Fr-Es-En) | Scoop.it

World Radio Day celebrates a medium that has transformed the way we communicate and that remains at the forefront of the 21st century. On 18 December, 2012, the United Nations General Assembly endorsed the 2011 resolution adopted by the UNESCO General Conference, proclaiming 13 February as World Radio Day, the day United Nations Radio was established in 1946.

The birth of radio in the 19th century ushered in the era of modern communication. The world has changed dramatically since then, but radio has hardly aged a day. It remains widely accessible, relatively cheap and very simple to use. It is still the medium that can carry any message to any place at any time – even without electricity. In situations of conflict and natural disaster, shortwave radio provides a lifeline of information that can save lives.

Radio has embraced the digital revolution to expand its power and reach. Across the world, the cost of broadcasting is decreasing and the number of radio stations is increasing. Citizen journalists and community media are using online radio stations to give voices to those who are rarely heard. More than ever, radio remains a force for social change, by sharing knowledge and providing a platform for inclusive debate.

In a world changing quickly, UNESCO is committed to harnessing the full power of radio to build bridges of understanding between peoples, to share information as widely as possible and to deepen respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms, especially freedom of expression. This is essential for good governance, open societies and sustainable development. 

This is why UNESCO works to protect the safety of radio journalists across the world and to support free, independent and pluralistic media, along with the necessary legal frameworks and democratic institutions.

UNESCO is also determined to make full use of community radio to address poverty and social exclusion at the local level and to empower marginalized rural groups, young people and women. Radio is a key platform for education and for protecting local cultures and languages. It is also a powerful way to amplify the voices of young people around the world on issues that affect their lives. We must bolster their skills and give them opportunities to engage fully with radio.

Radio has transformed our past -- it remains a powerful force for shaping a more peaceful, more sustainable and more inclusive future for all. This is UNESCO’s message for World Radio Day.

Les usages ne sont plus ce qu'ils étaient. C'est une banalité de le dire, c'est aussi une constatation ordinaire : ils changent tout le temps. Le numérique (au sens large) a engendré tout un tas de basculements/bousculements dans notre façon de vivre et de partager de l'information, de comprendre les dynamiques de territoires, et de s'approprier des outils de publication pour ne pas s'en remettre à des tiers - experts, journalistes, institutionnels de tout poil - pour essayer de saisir ce qui se trame ici ou là.

Community radio and local radio | ICT Regulation Toolkit

Community radio and local radio | ICT Regulation Toolkit | Radio Hacktive (Fr-Es-En) | Scoop.it

Local rural radio, which has Internet access, is emerging as one such successful intermediary because it is accessible, affordable and cheap to produce. Further, radio is a mass and an oral medium that promotes community interaction and social communication processes. Radio and Internet can benefit from each other in the following ways:

- Internet resources for radios to exchange information and programming, such as InterWorld Radio, providing access to a huge range of journalists’ reports on a variety of topics;

- Radios using the Internet to provide a variety of information to their listeners; a well-known example is the UNESCO-supported Kothmale Internet Project in Sri Lanka.

Finding the universal, a lesson of diversity by CBC Toronto Radio | Radiodays Europe 2013

Finding the universal, a lesson of diversity by CBC Toronto Radio | Radiodays Europe 2013 | Radio Hacktive (Fr-Es-En) | Scoop.it

Within a year, Susan Marjetti turned CBC Toronto into the leading radio programme in Canada. Today "The Metro Morning" is a business model of diversity.
 
Susan Marjetti had a vision. Toronto was and still is the most diverse city in Canada. She wanted CBC to be more relevant to more people.
 
She also had the strategy: recruit, hire, and reach out to the people in the city. Listen to them, include their ideas, and tell their stories.
 
Marjetti finally had the courage. People don't like change. During the first months, Marjetti lost large parts of CBC's core audience. But an even larger share of new listeners appeared, and within a year, the core returned.
 
Over the last decade CBC Toronto has tripled its audience share. "If you build it, they will come, we are living proof of that. Challenge yourself to new ways," Marjetti says.
 
To her, this meant to recruit and hire people of all backgrounds to expand the range of perspectives in the programming department. If you want to be diverse, this needs to reflect in your team.
 
On the other hand, "you need to find the universal to make diversity work." When Marjetti played a short soundbite of a Chinese mother desperately calling out to her kidnapped daughter in Mandarin, she only provided translation afterwards. But the audience had already understood.
 
Susan Marjetti provided an impressive example of how diversity works as a tool of success in public radio.

A Framework and Case Example for Evaluating Cost-Effectiveness of Information Services Across Technologies

This paper introduces a framework to examine the relative effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of different information and communications technologies to deliver a range of social services, using a case example of rural Bangladesh.

It focuses particularly on major sectors such as agriculture, education, disaster response and healthcare.

 

An expert elicitation (using both local and international experts) on ICT effectiveness by service domains shows localization as the key determining factor for any technological intervention. Community based radio broadcasting (CR) appears as the dominant option among the
considered ICTs.

 

...We conclude with a proposed set of policy and operating recommendations to enable effective technology-based information
services for rural Bangladeshi development.

How campaigning NGOs have joined the foreign-reporting business | Ian Burrell | Radio Hacktive (Fr-Es-En) | Scoop.it
The relationship between the news business and the charity sector has been drastically changed by internet technology. As traditional media has seen its business model undermined and been forced to close international bureaux, NGOs have realised the opportunities to become broadcasters themselves, publishing their material online and diffusing it through social media. Suddenly it is the NGOs, rather than the news media, which have the money to fly photojournalists on foreign assignments in search of images that will support an important campaign.
