      ****Montreal****, June 16, 2013. The International Board of Directors of
      the World Association of Community Radio Broadcasters (AMARC) is pleased to
      announce that the Eleventh World Assembly of Community Radio Broadcasters
      will be held from 1 to 5 December 2013 in Accra, Ghana. The Ghana
      Community radio Network (GCRN) will host the second Global conference of
      community broadcasters to be held in Africa, where community radios were
      born in the 80s and have made an important contribution to development
      objectives and good governance.****

      AMARC 11 will deepen the international solidarity needed to break the
      regulatory and other impediments that prevent Community Radio in Africa
      from thriving in Africa. It will also showcase the international
      experience, including that of the host country Ghana, that demonstrates
      irrefutably why Community Radio is the resource par excellence of the
      least voiced to enjoy their birthright to communicate and be counted as
      necessary partners for equitable and sustainable global development.****

      More than 500 community broadcasters and stakeholders from over 110
      countries and all regions of the global community radio movement will
      gather at the AMARC 11 Global Conference from 1-5 December 2014 to, among
      other issues, improve good practices in community media; explore strategies
      to facilitate the establishment of enabling legal environments for
      community media development, to define knowledge sharing and capacity
      building models for action-research and mentoring; to reinforce content
      development leading to social change; to facilitate the inclusion of women
      and; to encourage the empowerment of communities through appropriation of
      community radio for social justice and sustainable, democratic and
      participatory human development.******
