International Literacy Day

Sept. 4, 2020

The 8th September was proclaimed International Literacy Day by UNESCO, in 1966, to remind the community worldwide of the importance of literacy for individuals, communities and societies. International Literacy Day 2020 theme is ‘Literacy teaching and learning in the COVID-19 crisis and beyond’, highlighting the lifelong literacy perspective of youth and adults. The recent Covid-19 crisis has shown that there has been a negative impact on the youth and adults who have little or no low literacy skills.
