What is World Television Day ?
In December 1996, the UN General Assembly proclaimed November 21st as World Television Day, to celebrate the day of the first World Television Forum.
The concept of a television anniversary came to be as a recognition of “television’s constantly growing impact over decision-making, by directing attention worldwide to conflicts and threats to peace and security,” and of “its potential role in strengthening focus on other major issues, including economic and social.”
