International Education Day 2022
Today, the world celebrates the fourth International Education Day under the theme:
“Changing Course, Transforming Education.”
Education is a human right.
“This year’s International Education Day will be a platform to showcase the most important transformations that have to be nurtured to realize everyone’s fundamental right to education and build a more sustainable, inclusive and peaceful futures. It will generate debate around how to strengthen education as a public endeavour and common good, how to steer the digital transformation, support teachers, safeguard the planet and unlock the potential in every person to contribute to collective well-being and our shared home.”
– UNESCO statement.
As detailed in UNESCO’s global Futures of Education report, transforming the future requires an urgent rebalancing of our relationships with each other, with nature and with the technology that permeates our lives, bearing breakthrough opportunities while raising serious concerns for equity, inclusion and democratic participation.
