The Wave Forward

February 13-14, 2023

The Radio Festival

The Radio Festival is a first-of-its-kind initiative that brings together all three tiers of – public, private and community radio – along with podcasters and others invested in the audio space, to celebrate sound.

The 5th edition of the festival provides a unique opportunity for participants to have stimulating conversations, exchange innovative ideas and participate in a host of exciting activities that seek to increase civic participation and strengthen ownership of SDGs.


The much awaited 3rd Edition of the TRF-UNESCO-CEMCA SDG FELLOWSHIP is here! The Fellowship is a unique initiative that has been launched to enable and enrich the skills of community radio practitioners to align themselves with the agenda and targets laid out in the 2030 Agenda for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.

This year we propose to select 5 Fellows who will undergo a rigorous training and mentorship period of 120 days to produce an 8-part audio series featuring locally-sourced stories on the Sustainable Development Goals.

Entries are now closed. Fellows to be announced on February 13, 2023.
