Laureates from Ghana, Palestine and Peru win 2021 UNESCO-Japan Prize on Education for Sustainable Development – Ghana Commission for UNESCO

Congratulations to World Vision Ghana 🥳🥳🥳

World Vision was chosen for its "Unlock Literacy Project (UL)”, which promotes a holistic approach to the development of literacy focusing on critical thinking, a core competency for sustainability. The project aims to empower children at the primary level to think critically about local issues and take actions, as well as to make reading exciting through multi-lingual education. Going beyond traditional literacy approaches, the project is rewarded its action-oriented, peer-to-peer approach to learning involving whole-communities. It carries potential for further scaling up nationally through cooperation with formal education.

Congratulations Audrey Azoulay!! Director-General of UNESCO

Congratulations to Audrey Azoulay for her reelection as Director-General of UNESCO 👏

Ensuing the announcement of her new mandate, Audrey Azoulay has expressed her will for UNESCO to keep on modernising itself, to make its action on its core missions more efficient, like in the case of Mosul or Beirut, or during the COVID-19 pandemic, when hundreds of millions of children and adolescents were deprived of their right to learn and where a global coordination, led by UNESCO, ensured pedagogical continuity in 112 countries!

It's UNESCO's 75th anniversary!

🏛️ UNESCO's story started with the idea that we cannot achieve peace without education and open science.

🕊️ In its first years, UNESCO debunked racist theories. It was the first official public body to declare that there is no scientific basis or justification for racial bias.

💚 Today UNESCO keeps bringing people together from all over the world to cooperate for Education, the Sciences and Culture.

Is the Internet a safe place for children? Hit like for 'yes', angry for 'no', love for 'not sure'. Interventions on how to navigate safely online can start with very young children since they are online from an early age. Bullying prevention, however, should be tailored to specific age groups because of the differences in bullying and cyberbullying behaviors. https://on.unesco.org/3epDfkT #StopBullying
