The television has come a long way in a short time, becoming a central technology to the dissemination of information that has now reached a global scale. World Television Day on November 21 recognizes the way the medium has shaped our lives, changed how we live, and how our economies and cultures have developed. With increasing globalization, television has the capacity to help bridge gaps between cultures, along with the power to wash away and disappear long standing ways of life in alarmingly short order. With the growth and rapid rise of the internet, where does the television stand in our lives? Will the most pervasive and powerful medium of the past century even survive into the earliest years of the next? Join the discussion!

Children are representative of our future, as well as an embodiment of innocence and hope. But children are also an extremely vulnerable group, and often do not have the capacity or opportunity to stand up for their own rights. Universal Children's Day recognizes the joy that children bring into our world, and into the lives of those around them. It is also a day reserved for recognizing the responsibility we all have to protect children from harm, and provide the nurture they need to grow up in a healthy and happy environment. It is their right.
Close to 600 million people in Africa are living without stable or affordable sources of energy, and still rely on some of the most basic technologies for subsistence living. On November 21 we take notice of the great development needs facing Africa, and the opportunities they are increasingly seeing to implement infrastructure initiatives that would benefit day to day life, and foster sustainable economic growth. With this emerging boon in development and industrialization, the continent faces new questions over the use and allocation of resources, and what the cultural and environmental challenges will be in the face of such rapid change. What danger comes with the economic benefits of resource exploration in possibly bringing about a new type of economic colonialism Africa has only just emerged from. Connect with our fellow African TIG members and share your thoughts about the opportunities and problems facing the region...
