International Day of Education is to acknowledge the role of education for peace and development, and as a human right and a public good and responsibility. The 2021 theme is Recover and Revitalize Education for the COVID-19 Generation through international solidarity and collaboration to place education and lifelong learning at the centre of the recovery. The global event for this day has three foci: (1) learning heroes; (2) innovations; and (3) financing. UNESCO, the Global Partnership for Education, the Centre for Interdisciplinary Studies and partners from the Global Education Coalition are collaborating to give the Learning Planet Festival.
