On International Day of Education

 Jan 24, 2021

"Recover and Revitalize Education for the COVID-19 Generation"

Taking place every year on 24 January, International Day of Education highlights the ongoing need for quality education around the world. Under the framework of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 4, titled “Quality Education,” International Day of Education sheds light on each partner nation’s commitment to “ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.”

This past year has had an impact on the quality of global education at every level, with shutdowns from COVID-19 closing schools and requiring alternative solutions for maintaining a successful education system. As more schools, colleges, and universities shift to varied learning strategies, whether online or in-person, the global pandemic has permanently affected education for years to come.

With this in mind, the United Nations’ theme for International Day of Education 2021 is titled “recover and revitalize education for the COVID-19 generation.” With numerous projects and innovations planned to step up collaboration and international solidarity, the goal of this year’s theme is to place education and lifelong learning at the center of recovery and transformation across the globe.

We at the Embassy of the State of Libya in Washington, D.C. stand in support of the spirit of International Day of Education and wish all students and teachers in Libya and around the world success in their educational pursuits.
