International Day of Education - 24 January

Yesterday we celebrated International Day of Education

International Day of Education is an annual international observance day held on January 24 and is dedicated to education. On December 3, 2018, the United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution proclaiming January 24 as International Day of Education, in celebration of the role of education for bringing global peace and sustainable development.

Education is key to sustainable development, when it adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in September 2015, the international community recognised that education is essential for the success of all 17 of its goals. Sustainable Development Goal 4, in particular, aims to “ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all” by 2030.

Education transforms lives. Nelson Mandela rightly stated “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”

Think Education. Think JET.
