Welcome to AV Radio: a collaborative social development information exchange framework for community leadership and global activism. Our effort is best captured by the words of Simon Sinek: “The responsibility of leadership is not to come up with all the ideas, but to create an environment in which great ideas can happen.” Social development content is important to sustainable development and we are committed to continuing to improve our programs and outreach to our listeners. Intelligent discussions are no longer taking place in silos. If you have anything to say, here is the power to say it. The world is listening. Therefore, we encourage individuals who feel passionately concerned about social development to take advantage of this opportunity to using our platform to test new ideas, debate, ask questions and participate in sharing with other likeminded people from around the world during our live broadcast. Please join our weekly discussions live by phone or Skype and listen to program archives as we connect local individuals to the global communities. The objective of our programs is to serve as a platform for awareness campaign of independent advocacy groups, presentation of relative ideas and innovations on sustainable development; for facilitating cooperation, and for ideas generation and a spot for inspiring consensus and leadership on sustainable development. Our programs include discussions and presentations on the following categories: Environmental Awareness, Health Dialogues, Cultural Diversity, Family and Social life, Women Advancement, Technology, Economy and Finance, Psychology. Our host and guests include pundits from the private, public, academia, and independent sectors around the globe. Please visit our website ( for more information.
