In a time when schools, universities and youth are so deeply affected by the pandemic, the #LearningPlanet Festival invites everyone, everywhere to share and celebrate their most significant learnings to take care of “oneself, others and the planet”. Participants will enjoy stimulating learning experiences, meet like-minded people and launch meaningful projects for their communities.
Organised in partnership with UNESCO and leading organisations across the world, the #LearningPlanet Festival 2021 will explore how to inspire and empower learners of all ages to contribute to shaping better futures.
The #LearningPlanet Festival is a grassroots celebration of new ways of learning, teaching, researching and mobilizing collective intelligence to solve the world’s most pressing issues together.
On January 25th, 2021, UNESCO will also celebrate the International Day of Education by organising an online conference on the theme: “Recover and Revitalize Education for the Covid-19 generation.” The UNESCO conference will feature the award ceremony of the “Conversation with The Little Prince” writing contest. Registration for the #LearningPlanet Festival will also give you access to UNESCO’s online conference programme.
You can discover the #LearningPlanet Festival live or on-demand on the Festival Platform. Viewing the event on the platform will allow you to engage during the live sessions and connect with speakers and attendees from around the world!

The world celebrates the International Day of Education on 24 January, a day proclaimed by the UN General Assembly to honour education and its centrality to human well-being and sustainable development.
UNESCO, in partnership with CRI, hosted a conference at its headquarters on January 24, 2020 where 400 participants explored together the many ways learning can empower people, protect the planet, build shared prosperity and foster peace.
For the first edition of the #LEARNINGPLANET Festival, events were held in Frand and globally, notably in Belgium, Democratic Republic of Congo, India, Quebec and Singapore.
Moreover, the UNESCO global network of Learning Cities – many of which have long been organising learning festivals throughout the year – also chose to synchronise the organisation of a series of celebrations on January 24, notably in Cameroon and Egypt, Germany, Hungary, Netherlands, Poland and UK as well as in the Philippines.
