International Day of Education in
Days to go:
International Day of Education is dedicated to highlighting the crucial role that education plays in promoting peace and development across the globe. This observance is a rallying call to intensify action towards achieving inclusive and equitable quality education for all, with particular emphasis on reaching the most marginalized including persons with disabilities, indigenous people, refugees, and children in vulnerable situations. Education performs a pivotal role in fostering tolerant societies, driving sustainable economic growth, eradicating poverty, and enhancing overall wellbeing.
The United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) proclaimed this day on December 3, 2018, in an effort to highlight the integral role of education in human welfare and societal transformation. For India, a country with nearly a fifth of the world's youth, this day bears significant importance. The provision of comprehensive quality education in India is instrumental for empowering individuals, strengthening capacities, driving economic prosperity, and promoting social inclusivity. Furthermore, it aids in the attainment of the Sustainable Development Goals, particularly the fourth one, which directly focuses on ensuring inclusive and equitable quality education and promoting lifelong learning opportunities for all.
The International Day of Education in India is observed in various forms, ranging from awareness campaigns to amplifying calls for investments in education. Government bodies, educational institutions, and civil society organizations collaborate to conduct seminars, rallies, and several events to emphasize the importance of education in achieving social and economic development. This observance occurs annually on January 24th.
