SIGNIS Asia members as one Asian Catholic Radio Group

2nd April 2019

“Greenpeace on Earth Campaign for Christmas” is the advocacy campaign born at the Asian Radio Workshop held last November 5–10, 2018 at the Communication Foundation for Asia (CFA). More than twenty delegates from across Asia gathered to learn how to do more effective radio broadcasting. One of the notable speakers in the said event is our very own Fr. Filoteo Pelingon, MSC, CFA President. He talked about Development Communication and the role of CFA as a Development Communication Foundation. But we accomplished more than that. “We were able to put together an Asian radio group, who are pillars in Catholic and community radio in their countries”, said Ms. Josephine Mabanta – Fenomeno, CFA Vice-President for Operations, who took charge of the event. The members of this Asian Catholic radio group promised to enthusiastically share their knowledge with one another and build partnerships. Host of the event, we were not only able to showcase what we are capable of doing as a Foundation but also gave them the venue for meeting of minds.

This environmental advocacy, “Greenpeace on Earth Campaign for Christmas” interests CFA because we believe that peace is fostered not only by social justice but also by environmental justice. All participating radio personalities are now involved in this campaign. This advocacy is only the beginning the many endeavors we aim to achieve together one Asian Catholic Radio Group.
