Celebrate First-ever International Day of Education

In December 2018, the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed January 24 as the International Day of Education. This new celebration recognizes the importance of working to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education at all levels in order that all may have access to lifelong learning opportunities. Providing this access will help people everywhere acquire the knowledge and skills needed to access opportunities to participate fully in society and contribute to sustainable development.
