2022-23

Annual Report

Explore this year's digital extras.

What's a digital extra?

We're incredibly proud of our annual report — but more than the document itself, we are incredibly proud of the work that it is reporting on. After all, in 2022-2023 we reached: 

24.1 million listeners,
4.8 million of whom improved their practices thanks to
778 broadcasters who were trained in interactive radio programs in 
38 countries.

But we couldn't possibly consolidate all of our work into a 28-page report. So we put together a selection of digital extras to add to the report — all of which we've linked to on this page. They hopefully provide a bigger window into what we do and the people we work with and more explanations about the different things that we do. We'll refer to the page numbers throughout so that, as you're flipping through, you can find out which page connects to which part. 

Happy exploring!
