Marrakech, September 22nd, 2016 (AMRAC). AMARC launches Radio Cop22, a temporary and multilingual press agency. This project wants to offer news coverage dedicated to the editorial needs of worldwide associative, community, campus and free radio stations, on the occasion of COP22, the UN conference on climate change, taking place from 7 to 18 November in Marrakech (Morocco).

Environmental discussions, climate solutions, social, economic and cultural news... Sixteen journalists from at least ten countries will be on site to produce stories, articles and broadcasts in Arabic, English, French, Spanish, Amazigh (published by Creative Commons CC-BY-NC).

AMARC is asking for your participation! The Marrakech’s reports and programmes will be available to you in the www.climateradio.net site, but they also want to offer any programme produced to highlight the impact of Climate Change before, during or after the UN Conference, as they want to offer evidence of the communities and the community radio stations’ efforts in highlighting and supporting climate and environmental struggles worldwide.

Send your contributions through WeTransfer at this address and download Climate Radio reports on www.climateradio.net

It is expected that Radio Cop22 will also become a temporary FM radio station for the city of Marrakech. The goal is to experience the first community broadcasting on Moroccan FM (subject to the granting of this license by the Moroccan media regulatory authorities).

Thanks to Climate Radio experience, AMARC and its members are increasing their presence and journalistic coverage expertise at international high level summits, always at the service of communities and their radios.

Climate Radio is coordinated by AMARC, in partnership with the FMAS, with the support of the Maghreb UNESCO office in the framework of the «Network of Mediterranean Youth» project (NET-MED Youth) funded by the European Union. The initiative is developed in partnership with the Civil Society COP22 coordinating committee.
