Active citizenship begins with being aware of, and linked to, the world immediately around you -- your local community. It then extends to the wider context Ė your region. And finally it extends further to what is happening in other places Ė the nation and the world.

When VoicePrint began broadcasting in 1990, it was primarily a national service. Over time, VoicePrint began opening regional offices so we could provide more localized news and information.

Currently, VoicePrint is well into an ambitious initiative to increase and improve local service: the opening of 100+ Local Broadcast Centres (LBCs) by 2010. As of February 2008, we were far ahead of schedule, with more than 80 LBCs up and running (see menu at left), most of which are based at our existing regional offices.

Our listeners have told us they need more local news and information. As a former Board member has pointed out:

"Thereís nothing in our society more important than telling the story of whatís actually happening in the community. This is what a community is all about and the nature of the civilized part of our society. And so, if we donít communicate this information, we donít really have a community."
