International Day of Education
24th of January 2022

Learning to take care of oneself, others and the planet

Launched in 2020 by CRI and UNESCO and co-organised globally with hundreds of leading organisations from the worlds of art, science, education, social entrepreneurship, etc., the annual #LearningPlanet Festival aims to synchronise the world around the celebration of the International Day of Education.

Delivering a message of hope and inclusiveness, the Festival invites everyone, everywhere to celebrate the past, present and future of learning. How? By co-creating:

  • Hundreds of hybrid events: talks, roundtables, workshops, artistic activities, games and challenges, documentaries, etc.
  • Tailor-made programmes such as the Open Pantheon and the GPS of Dreams.

Participants are thus given the opportunity to experience new meaningfun ways of learning, to meet like-minded people, to engage with on-the-ground innovators in their communities and eventually contribute to impactful projects.

(Re)discover the previous editions of the #LP Festival!

The #LearningPlanet Festival was launched in January 2020 at the UNESCO headquarters in Paris, while a series of events took place simultaneously across France and several other countries. This took on another dimension in January 2021 (24th-30th); in the context of the covid-19 crisis, 250 online sessions were co-organised with participants from 100+ countries, addressing topical issues around learning for sustainable development, redesigning schools with children, creating learning ecosystems, etc. We thoroughly enjoyed this collective experience and invite you here to discover highlights of these past editions.
