New York, 24 January 2019 — The United Nations observed the first International Day of Education to emphasize the action required to achieve the global education goals and targets in line with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The celebration raised awareness of the crucial role of quality and relevant education for peace and development worldwide, including its contribution to poverty eradication, environmental sustainability and building peaceful and resilient societies. The event brought together the voices of governments, the UN system, private sector, civil society, faith-based organizations, teachers, academia and youth, united in their call to make education a leading global priority.

Recently, the United Nations General Assembly had proclaimed 24 January as International Day of Education in celebration of the role of education for peace and development.

Education is a human right, a public good, and a civic responsibility.
