International Education Day 2022: Know its purpose and importance
International Education Day 2022: it is said, is the answer to all problems. Whether it’s poverty, unrest, or a lack of progress. If education is the path to solving all of these issues, then it is education. Today, January 24, is also a very special day for the entire world. International Education Day is observed on this day.
The decision was made in 2018.
In 2018, the United Nations General Assembly declared the 24th of January to be International Day of Education every year. This decision was quickly adopted by more than 50 countries. Since then, this date has been observed as International Education Day all over the world.
What exactly is the goal?
The main goal of marking this day as International Education Day is to raise awareness about the value of education around the world. Peace and development are the most important aspects of human life, and education is the only means of achieving them. The goal of commemorating this day is to ensure that everyone, including children, has access to free and basic education as soon as possible. On this day, celebrations are held all over the world. Learning, Innovation, and Financing are the three main themes.
Changing Directions – Changing Education
“Changing Courses – Transforming Education” is the theme for International Education Day in 2022. The reason for this is that, in light of the impact on the education sector over the last two years, it is necessary to refocus on ways to make education more easily accessible to all. The theme of this year’s event was “Recover and Revitalize Education for the Kovid-19 Generation,” which was carried out last year.
The significance of World Education Day
The goal of bringing education to every home in the world appears to be a long way off. Millions of children continue to be denied access to a good education. Although the internet has aided in this area to some extent, there are still many places where it is not available. Various statistics show that millions of children around the world still do not attend school. Despite the fact that millions of children attend school, there is a severe lack of quality education. At the same time, a large number of children’s education is cut in half. To address all of these issues, the main goal of International Education Day is to find a solution to the problem.
