Annual Report


In our 2020-2021 Annual Report, we look back on a difficult year, but also a very rewarding one, which has seen the EBU has developed even closer relationships with its Members and respond more effectively to their needs. It has also provided the opportunity to reaffirm the importance of public service media to society.

As our societies continue to adapt and respond to an unprecedented crisis, public service media have been there to accompany them and listen to their needs, such as stepping in for educational purposes, supporting the cultural industries and, more than ever, defending the right to free and trustworthy news for all.

As the digital space has grown in our daily lives, the EBU is offering tools, content and international collaborations to support Members in sharing and creating high-end productions. We’re also strongly involved in sketching the future of a strong European audiovisual market, and committed to caring for future generations of young audiences.
