Using audiovisual methods to increase awareness of environmental issues in rural areas

Expanding use of audiovisual methods, especially with mobile units in rural areas
This strategy features in the framework of Agenda 21 as formulated at UNCED (Rio de Janeiro, 1992), now coordinated by the United Nations Commission on Sustainable Development and implemented through national and local authorities.

Agenda 21 recommends that national and local educational authorities and relevant UN agencies should expand, as appropriate, the use of audio-visual methods, especially mobile units in rural areas, by producing television and radio programmes for developing countries, involving local participation, employing interactive multimedia methods and integrating advanced methods with folk media.

Countries, in cooperation with the scientific community, should establish ways of employing modern communication technology for effective public outreach on the environment.
