Universal Access to Information Day is celebrated by UNESCO each year on September 28th. We acknowledge this day, as we believe that youth have the right to know the facts, services, and stories that build more peaceful and open societies.

The International Day for Universal Access to Information aims to raise awareness of how media and universal access to information are important aspects of ensuring sustainable development. Access to information brings people together, encourages us to ask questions, and allows us to make informed decisions about our futures. Radio remains one of the most powerful media tools to get vital information to the public. We appreciate the 727 youth reporters across 79 radio station projects in Tanzania, Zambia, South Africa, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Ivory Coast who share information, generate dialogue, and inspire action in and beyond their communities!
