The idea of Radioteca started in June 2004, at the II “Foro Social de las Americas” (Social Forum of the Americas). Some of the topics addressed in this event are: human rights, peace, poverty, hunger, corruption, democracy, indigenous people rights, social initiative 1. In this forum, a group of radio producers met at CIESPAL -Centro International de Estudios Superiores de Comunicacion para America Latina (International Center for Higher Communication Studies for Latin America). One of the projects proposed during this event was a digital platform where people could share audios. In 2005, UNESCO held a reunion in Guadalajara to talk about successful communication experiences in Latin America and Caribbean. Was until 2006, that Radioteca was launched, being UNESCO a great contributor to the project. File:Radioteca.jpg
