The Celebrations of International Day of Education include the role of education for peace and development.
United Nations’ (UN) International Education Day is observed on the 24th of January every year. In the current year, 2022 the fourth International Education Day is being celebrated on Monday, 24 January.
Theme of International Day of Education
“Changing Course, Transforming Education” is the Theme of International Education Day 2022 proclaimed by Unesco (United Nations).
The purpose of this theme is to strengthen and welcome the revival of education. Education in its usual and formal way has observed a huge gap in the year 2020-21. All activities especially educational activities remained under-cover and were frozen with the wave of Corona Virus which started in china and closed all educational institutions there, it encapsulated the whole world. Now a ray of hope has appeared when our generation who suffered very much during the Covid-19 period and thus labeled itself the Covid-19 generation, will start going to school college and universities.
The physical recovery from this pandemic is that we are back at our work and are sound and healthy but mental recovery is only possible when our education may also be back on track which is the most vital thing to do. Education in this regard is so important that we even require education to avoid the contamination of viruses. We need to educate ourselves about health concerns and the health of the whole community.
Hence vitality of education is always there but the theme of the 2022 international day of education also stresses to realize the fundamental right of everyone to education. This will help to build a more sustainable, inclusive and peaceful future and its importance must be redressed for the large benefits of our generation.
Theme of International Day of Education for the previous year 2021 was,
“Recover and Revitalize Education for the COVID-19 Generation.”
Education is a human right, a public good and a public responsibility. The United Nations’ aims to spread education that is included in the basic needs and privileges and in turn human responsibilities and duties.
