About Us: TVE Asia Pacific
The Asia Pacific -- spanning from Afghanistan to Kiribati, and from Japan to New Zealand – is the world’s largest geographical region, and home to 60% of humanity, including most of its poor. It’s a highly diverse and dynamic region where television, video, VCD and DVD media reach out to the far corners, even in the most remote areas.
There are more television viewers in the 60+ countries of the Asia Pacific than anywhere else in the world. New information and communication technologies – such as mobile phones and Internet – are slowly but steadily rolling out. As the region’s media penetration increases, it opens up huge opportunities for using these media for public education and information on sustainable development and social justice issues. TVE Asia Pacific responds to this timely need.
TVE Asia Pacific (TVEAP) was founded in 1996 by a group of communications specialists and development professionals who asked: how can these communications technologies and public media be used to enrich lives, livelihoods and human society everywhere in our region?
To overcome the barriers of language, culture and literacy, the organisation’s focus was set on moving images – in various forms such as television, video and movies. As the new media evolved, we have extended our work to also cover the Internet and World Wide Web.
Our approach in all media remains: moving images moving people!
