The Asia-Pacific Media Alliance for Social Awareness (The Media Alliance) and CSR Asia are organising a one-day seminar on “The CSR practices and policies of the Media, Advertising and Entertainment Sectors in Asia” in both Hong Kong (Tuesday 7 May 2013) and Singapore (Wednesday 8 May 2013).

The event will look at best policies and practices of media companies in giving visibility to social, humanitarian, environmental and sustainable development issues through programming content and social issue and public service advertising.

Media companies can be more than just entities that provide products and services. They have the potential to be vehicles and mediums for positive change among the audiences they reach – as a result of their own values and commitment to a more sustainable future.  At a time when corporations are increasingly held accountable and at a time when CSR is good practice for business, what are the CSR practices and polices of the Media, Advertising and Entertainment Sectors in Asia? Why is this sector relevant to us all?


The destination for the Asia Media Summit 2013 is the city of Manado, capital city of the North Sulawesi province of Indonesia. Manado is located at the Bay of Manado, and is surrounded by a mountainous area. A lively city with a friendly local population, Manado is one of the best scuba, snorkeling and diving locations in the world. Among the numerous attractions around or near the city include the fascinating Ban Hin Kiong Temple, the impressive Bunaken National Park and the beautiful Mount Lokon.

AIBD is pleased to announce the Novotel Manado Golf Resort & Convention Centre, Manado, Indonesia, as the official venue for the Asia Media Summit, 29-31 May 2013. AMS 2013 delegates will also stay at the two other official hotels for the summit, the SwissBel Hotel Maleosan and Hotel Aryaduta Manado. Please note that delegates are encouraged to book their flights and accommodation early.

A UNEP-AIBD workshop trains TV producers from the Asia-Pacific to spread awareness about ozone depletion and climate change. “Why don’t the greenhouse gases escape through the hole in the ozone layer?” asks an average TV viewer in a cartoon that first appeared in a US newspaper a few years ago. That question illustrates the confusion in the minds of many non-specialists across the world.
