Community media – of which community radio is one sector – enable people to voice commonconcerns, to unite around common causes, to challenge decision-makers on their own turf, tocreate communities that better respond to the needs of their members. As such, technological convergence posits a future in which community media (radio, television, digital platforms) become the nexus of grassroots democracy, of a genuine forum for good citizenship and good governance.
