This event will bring together managers and staff from community media houses, broadcasting media, Government line ministries, civil society operating in media, academia and public sector. The participants will ratify a common purpose of promoting community media centers to serve the developmental needs of communities in Uganda by providing access to relevant information, education and entertainment that can impart positive social change.
