      Mr. Ian Pringle has returned to Canada to work with
      the Commonwealth of Learning as Education Specialist, Media,


      After eight years living and working in Nepal and India and two in Paris,
      Mr. Ian Pringle has returned to Canada to work with the Commonwealth of
      Learning as Education Specialist, Media, starting in January 2008. He
      will manage and direct a portfolio of interventions around the
      Commonwealth in the use of mass media for health, governance and
      community development.

      Ian has worked with community and public media for the past twenty years,
      in Canada, where he was born and raised, and later in South Asia and
      internationally. Ian studied English and communications at McGill
      University in Montreal, where he also began his long association with
      community radio. He lived in Vancouver from 1991 to 1997 working with a
      variety of media, including radio, video and the emerging internet. Then,
      as now, the focus on Ian's work has been on using local media as tools
      for empowerment and community development.

      In 1998, Ian moved to Nepal to take up a post with the Centre for
      International Studies and Cooperation as an advisor to Radio Sagarmatha,
      South Asia's first independent radio broadcaster. In subsequent years, he
      gradually devoted more and more time to new community media in rural
      Nepal, in south India and other countries in the region. In 2002 Ian
      joined UNESCO's Regional Bureau for Communication and Information in New
      Delhi, managing programmes in community media and new information and
      communication technologies (ICT). In 2006, he began an assignment at
      UNESCO Headquarters in Paris to co-ordinate the organisation's community
      multimedia initiatives, with a focus on scaling-up community media
      centres in Africa.

      Ian is a skilled and experienced media specialist with broad
      international experience and strong interests in innovation, social
      change and policy environments. He has contributed to numerous
      publications relating to media, new ICT and various aspects of
      development. In 2007, Ian returned to academic study, beginning a Masters
      degree in mass communication with the University of Leicester (England).

      We also want to express our warm gratitude to the Mr. Ian Pringle for
      assisting us in Community Radio Advocacy in Bangladesh.
