3 In 2011, Brazil experienced strong growth in economic and social fields. We became the sixth economy of the world while the middle class rose to more than 50% of the Brazilian population. We celebrate these indicators with an affirmation to continue to care for and surpass the expectations of the public, who, through their trust, have made our productions into audience leaders for so many years. With an ever more connected and digital television viewer, we have adopted new technologies and communication platforms, enhancing our relationship with our audience and preserving our standard of quality. Celebrating our 46 years, we recognize the importance of this partnership and, with eyes on the Brazilians who are tied to us, we launched the slogan: A gente se liga em você (Connected to you). Strengthening the social role of television has always been one of our priorities. This principle is reflected in our mission and in all of our programming. It can be seen daily in the plots of telenovelas, in our productions, in journalistic coverage, and even in commercial breaks, where we freely make our screen available so that millions of Brazilians can become aware of and be mobilized around relevant social issues. In 2011, we carried out social projects which have contributed to advances in strategic issues for the country, including education, the rights of children and youth, and the promotion of citizenship. It was also in this way that Saturday mornings saw the launch of the Globo Cidadania (Globo Citizenship) program, fortifying efforts to encourage knowledge and value diversity. All these initiatives are the result of a broad television experience and a social responsibility agenda that have marked the history of TV Globo and which we invite you to get to know. On the map at the beginning of this report, you ll find a collection of social actions which demonstrate that the commitment to the transformation of the society in which we live is present in all we do, beyond what you see on the screen. Octávio Florisbal General Director TV Globo

24 Globo Cidadania A program connected to you Serginho Groisman and other hosts of the programs of Globo Cidadania: Helena Lara Resende, Alexandre Henderson, Max Fercondini, Lizandra Trindade, Paulo Mário Martins, Julia Bandeira and Mariane Salerno. Globo knows the transformative power of television and it s role as a tool for education, as well as a vehicle for transmission of values and discussion of ideas. This concept, always in the programming, was reinforced last year with the creation of Globo Cidadania (Globo Citizenship).

26 Globo Cidadania Knowledge at the right time Science, ecology, education and social mobilization have air time assured on Saturday mornings in the program Globo Cidadania. The special journalistic programs are a new addition to TV Globo s programming, launched in September last year on TV and the internet.

Globo Ecologia sought to explain why preserving the planet is so important and how simple measures contribute to this goal. In 2011, chosen by the UN as the International Year of Forests, the program did a special series on the theme, showing how forests influenced and continue to influence our economy, our politics and culture, and, of course, our climate. The controversial Brazilian Forest Code, under discussions in the National Congress, had a program all to itself. GLOBO CIDADANIA 2011 SOCIAL INITIATIVES REPORT REDE GLOBO 27
