Televisiolla on tärkeä ja vaikuttava rooli yhteiskunnassamme erityisesti tällä hetkellä, kun ihmiset viettävät yhä enemmän aikaa kotonaan.

Putting the spotlight on society
Ohessa kommentteja maailmalta:
“While circumstances kept us apart this year, TV has brought us together. TV is and always has been a social glue. As viewing rocketed, broadcasters the world over reacted to the unique circumstances nimbly and with great creativity to ensure that TV was there for us all as a source of trusted information, comforting distraction, and much-needed escapism,” asserts Lindsey Clay, President of the Global TV Group and CEO of Thinkbox.
“This pandemic demonstrates like never before the role of television to support society and democracy. Throughout these difficult months, TV is there to care. Care for the provision of editorially responsible trusted news. Care for the distribution of entertainment to bring light in times of darkness. Care for preserving variety and cultural diversity in the media landscape. All in all, TV is and will continue to be a true beacon of resistance against the Coronavirus”, proclaims Guillaume de Posch, President of the Association of Commercial Television in Europe.
“The past year, TV has continued to uphold its long tradition of addressing the critical issues in our global community. It brings our attention to social injustice, sheds a neutral light on society’s mishaps, helps relieve the strain of an unprecedented era giving us a hopeful outlook on the future. World TV Day is an opportunity for us all to pay tribute to the many professionals who make the magic happen both on screen and from behind the scene. We invite everyone to once again celebrate our medium around the world,” says Laurent Bliaut, President of egta and Deputy General Director, Marketing and R&D, TF1 Publicité
“At the time of COVID-19, Television has never been so present and important. Broadcasters have a dual responsibility to inform and to connect people by sharing positive and verified stories about building back better and greener. Thank you to the TV industry for making a difference,” says Caroline Petit, Deputy Director United Nations Regional Information Centre for Europe (UNRIC).
