Building on its commitment to inform and engage Ontarians on important issues, TVO has launched its multi-platform Why Poverty? campaign to investigate poverty both globally and locally as part of a worldwide initiative involving 70 broadcasters. TVO will explore poverty through documentaries, short films, a dedicated website, in-community events and on social media platforms.
“We’re extremely proud to partner in Why Poverty?” says Jane Jankovic, TVO’s commissioning editor. “As the only media organization in Ontario participating in this initiative, we have an important role to play in helping Ontarians understand the complex issues related to poverty. We’ve created an in-depth toolkit that analyzes the issues, explores solutions and provides a platform for discussion on poverty, both around the world and in our own backyard.”
