World Teachers‘ Day: 5th October 2021


Der World Teachers’ Day wird seit 1994 jährlich am 5. Oktober gefeiert um alle Lehrer:innen auf der ganzen Welt zu feiern.  Der Tag erinnert an die UNESCO Resolution zum Status von Lehrenden 1966 ILO/UNESCO Recommendation concerning the Status of Teachers.

On World Teachers’ Day, we are not only celebrating every teacher. We are calling on countries to invest in them and prioritize them in global education recovery efforts so that every learner has access to a qualified and supported teacher. Let’s stand with our teachers!
