Radio has remained the most resilient and effective mode of communication, which is, till date, used by the majority for receiving information. Even after 110 years, Radio still reaches difficult terrains to connect people. 

Radio, in its glory, remained one of the main sources of entertainment and information for ages. To celebrate this, back in 2011 a Member State of UNESCO proclaimed February 13 as World Radio Day. 

This radio day, UNESCO is celebrating the 10th anniversary and more than 110 years of radio. As per UNESCO, the celebration of this World Radio Day edition is divided into three main sub-themes — Evolution, Innovation, and Connection.

Evolution: The world changes, radio evolves. This sub-theme refers to the resilience of the radio, to its sustainability.

Innovation: The world changes, radio adapts and innovates. Radio has had to adapt to new technologies to remain the go-to medium of mobility, accessible everywhere and to everyone.

Connection: The world changes, radio connects. This sub-theme highlights radio’s services to our society—natural disasters, socio-economic crises, epidemics, etc.

World Radio Day came into existence in 2011 but was adopted as an International Day in 2012 by the United Nations General Assembly. Every year, the day is celebrated with a different theme.
