“MEDIA RESET: SERVING THE PEOPLE, PLANET AND PEACE”

For a second year running all of us are forced to live and work in a completely new, and until recently, almost unimaginable environment. The COVID 19 pandemic, which spread to all corners of the world, is still raging and it looks like the so-called “new normal” is here to stay. We had to change not just the way we perform our activities but also the way we think about the future and prepare for the challenges to come. That is why the theme of our next General Assembly: “Media Reset: Serving the People, Planet and Peace” is very timely. The pandemic was a wake-up call for humanity. It focused global attention on the climate emergency, loss of biodiversity, food and water security and highlighted the role of media as an amplifier of positive action.

In these testing times, we would invite ABU members to get together and join forces to find a way forward. These grave challenges require innovative solutions, thinking out of the box, and above all solidarity and cooperation.

On the Agenda is how the media should serve our people, promote sustainable relations with our planet and live in harmony in our super-diverse world, with nature, and in peace. This is the call of the times for all media professionals and ABU members are ready to answer this call.

The 58th ABU General Assembly and Associated Meetings will take place as virtual sessions from 9th –  26th November as per schedule below. All sessions will begin at 1400hrs Kuala Lumpur time (GMT +8) unless specifically mentioned in the schedule. The closed sessions of the different committees are not listed in the schedule and will take place prior to the general committee meetings. The details of the closed sessions will be communicated to its relevant members separately as participation in these are by invitation only.

The prestigious ABU Prizes Awards Ceremony and ABU TV Song Festival will also run as virtual events and will be streamed live. Further information on these, the platforms and access details will be made available later.

The Plenary sessions of the General Assembly will take place from the 24th to 26th November.
