World Television Day

The first World Television Forum was held in 1996. Following the forum a resolution was passed in the United Nations General Assembly in the month of December in 1996 by force of which 21st November was henceforth effectively organized as the World Television Day.

The World Television Day is not that much a celebration of the tool but rather the philosophy which it represents. The television represents a symbol for communication and globalization in the contemporary world. It represents how global communication has been a major element in shaping central international issues and being a principle determinant of world economy and inter-national dialogues.

The television as a major tool for geo-televisual communication also provides a great platform for the addressing of social, cultural and economic issues of national and trans-national concerns. Television as an instrument provides entertainment as also a platform for debating, presenting and discussing issues which concern and involve world citizenry as a whole.
