L’Association mondiale pour la communication chrétienne

L’Association mondiale pour la communication chrétienne (WACC) est une organisation non gouvernementale qui s’appuie sur les droits à la communication afin de promouvoir la justice sociale. Aujourd’hui, dans les limites de ce qui est possible, nous offrons des conseils et du soutien aux personnes de toutes religions, ethnies et cultures dans le monde entier.

Nous croyons que tous et toutes ont le droit de communiquer et d’être en communication, de la même manière qu’ils et elles ont le droit à la nourriture, l’abri et la sécurité. Par moyen des alliances stratégiques, nous visons à être un catalyseur du changement pour l’intérêt commun, en partageant des informations, des connaissances et des expériences dans le domaine de la communication.  

La WACC compte des membres dans 118 pays. En travaillant avec eux, aux niveaux local, national et régional, elle répond aux besoins de communication, renforçe les capacités, se fait le champion des droits à la communication et relève les défis en cours tels que la nécessité pour les reportages sensibles au genre, la consolidation de la paix, et la communication participative pour le développement.  

En tant qu’association œcuménique mondiale composée de membres individuels, institutionnels et confessionnels, nous nous concentrons sur la promotion d’une meilleure compréhension et participation basée sur le droit de chacun et chacune de communiquer ouvertement et démocratiquement les décisions et les événements qui affectent leur vie.  

Travailler en solidarité avec de nombreux partenaires nous permet d’avancer ensemble vers la réalisation de nos objectifs. Partout où la WACC est présente, nous visons à apporter une contribution positive aux personnes et aux communautés.

Structure

WACC has corporate and personal members in 120 countries.  Members are organised in eight Regional Associations consisting of: WACC Africa, WACC Asia, WACC Caribbean, WACC Europe, WACC Latin America, WACC Middle East, WACC North America and WACC Pacific.

The Association has determined that there will be two autonomous companies and charities assigned to address the needs of the Association.  Each of these charitable companies has its own independent Board.  Members of  the two Boards are elected by the Regional Associations.   Each Board elects Officers, a member-at-large from the country in which the Board is legally registered, and a General Secretary. For stewardship of finances and efficiency of administration the two Boards have agreed to share common Officers, including the General Secretary, and a common Executive Committee.

Each WACC Board meets once a year to determine priorities and commitments for the following year’s programme of activities. The Officers and Executive Committees also meet frequently throughout the year.  Increasingly meetings are held online or by other electronic means.  The Regional Associations, or their Executive Committees, also meet annually to discuss their communication needs and activities.

WACC is genuinely ecumenical in its membership and communication activities. It encourages co-operation between Protestant, Anglican, Orthodox and Roman Catholic communicators and challenges denominations to seek the broadest possible base for their communication activities. WACC also promotes co-operation between people of other faiths and ideologies.

The history of WACC dates back to 1950 but the organisation was more formally established with a Board of Trustees in 1968 when the old WACC (once World Association for Christian Broadcasting) was merged with the North American committee, RAVEMCCO. The WACC (UK) organization was established as a business and charity in England and Wales in 1986 and continues to maintain an office in London, UK.  WACC Canada was registered as a not for profit business in Canada in 2006 and became a Canadian charitable organization in 2008 with its office based in Toronto, Canada.

Membership is open to individuals, churches, church-related agencies and media producers, educational institutions, secular communication organisations and anyone else sympathetic to WACC’s mission and to the Christian Principles of Communication.
