Brazil Discusses Public Radio with the World

Radio broadcasters from Brazil and other countries attended a meeting of the Brazilian Association of Public Radios, organized by the Itaú Cultural organization, in São Paulo at the end of June.

Reports on experience in public radio in the United States, France, Spain and Brazil were  presented at the event. The focus was on the operation and mission of public radio, and the role of public radio in democratization and citizenship.


This First National Meeting (of Radio), was part of the Citizenship Wave movement, a network of radio broadcasters, professors, radio station managers and others in the sector, who are interested in debating the problems, technology and use of radio. The network held a seminar in 2003.
