Please SAVE THE DATE for the IFGE’s Lunchtime Event on Wednesday, 24th January 2024 from 12.30pm to 2pm – online. Together we will commemorate the International Day of Education looking at

Global Education for Lasting Peace”.

It is the sixth International Day of Education and will be celebrated under the theme “learning for lasting peace”. With a surge of violence, an alarming rise of discrimination, racism and xenophobia as well as climate change negatively impacting education, the UNESCO calls for an active commitment to peace. Education is a catalyst for learners to be empowered as agents of peace in their communities, providing them with the necessary knowledge, values, attitudes, skills and behaviours.

Looking closely at the nexus of education, peace and topics, such as attacks on education and climate change, the IFGE invites to explore a way forward in 2024.

More information, also on how to register, will follow soon. Meanwhile, please save the date and share widely: Wednesday, 24th January, 12.30pm to 2pm – online.
