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.
Without quality education and lifelong learning for all, we will not succeed in addressing the challenges of our world. This requires investment, coordination and multilateralism; rethinking what and how we learn, with those who are on the frontlines and will be the actors and citizens of tomorrow: teachers and young people. - Audrey Azoulay, UNESCO Director-General
