UNESCO Policy Series: Community Media Sustainability

The recently launched UNESCO Community Media Sustainability Policy Series has been created to assist media regulators and government institutions to provide a regulatory environment that recognises the value of community media and supports its long-term sustainability.

Community media is an issue which has been on EPRA’s agenda on several occasions. A noteworthy document of the network is the comparative report on Local and Community Media released following a Working Group held in 2013. Most recently, Michael Nicolai, President of AMARC Europe, spoke at the EPRA meeting in Edinburgh in May 2017 and Judith Purkarthofer, President of CMFE, will participate in a workshop at the EPRA meeting in Vienna in October 2017.
