The sixth edition of World Radio Day will be held on 13 February 2017, with all radio stations, regulatory bodies and related organizations invited to plan special events or broadcasts to celebrate how radio shapes our lives. The theme for the 2017 edition of World Radio Day is "Radio is You!", a call for greater participation of audiences and communities in the policy and planning of radio broadcasting.
UNESCO attended the European Language Diversity Forum, which was organized as one of the affiliated events to the European Capital of Culture 2016 Agenda on 15 and 16 December 2016 in Donostia-San Sebastian, Spain. More than two hundred participants, including high level policy and decision makers, politicians, representatives of the intergovernmental organizations, experts, academia and civil society at local, national, European and multilateral levels, gathered to reflect and discuss on the factors that have an impact on the development of European minority languages, analyzing the current difficulties, existing normative frameworks, ongoing initiatives as well as identifying opportunities for further progress.
