World Radio Day was proclaimed in 2011 by the Member States of UNESCO and adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 2012.

According to the UN, radio continues to be a powerful medium for celebrating humanity in all its diversity and provides a platform for democratic discourse. At the global level, radio remains the most widely consumed medium. The unique ability to reach out the widest audience means radio can shape a society's experience of diversity, stand as an arena for all voices to speak out, be represented and heard.

The statement goes on to say that radio is a low-cost medium specifically suited to reaching remote communities and vulnerable people, offering a platform to intervene in the public debate, irrespective of people's educational level.

Radio also plays a crucial role in emergency communication and disaster relief, two areas of particular concern in Croatia following the series of devastating earthquakes in 2020 and the global pandemic.

The three sub-themes for 2021 are evolution, innovation, and connection.
