World Teachers' Day 2020
World Teachers’ Day 2020 will be celebrated with a week-long series of virtual events, beginning on 5 October with the Opening Ceremony and the awarding of the 6th UNESCO Hamdan Prize for the Effectiveness of Teachers. Ending with the Closing Ceremony on 12 October.
The virtual sessions provide the occasion to celebrate the teaching profession worldwide, take stock of achievements, and draw attention to the voices of teachers, who are at the heart of efforts to attain the global education target of leaving no one behind.
"Now is the time to recognize the role of teachers in helping to ensure a generation of students can reach their full potential, and the importance of education for short-term stimulus, economic growth and social cohesion, during and after COVID-19.
Now is the time to reimagine education and achieve our vision of equal access to quality learning for every child and young person."
