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.
Join the pioneering organisations that are co-designing and sharing toolkits for the #LP Festival: The World Largest Lesson, the Weaving Lab, Designathon, Climate KIC, NetEduProject, CRI, Bibliothèque Nationale de France, Maison de l’Apprendre, etc.
