Education and the Planet: Six (or More) Features that Make Our Children’s Schools Greener, Healthier, and More Inspiring24.01.20
A human right and a public responsibility, education has its moment in the international spotlight every year on January 24, officially the International Day of Education. For the 2020 celebration, UNESCO chose the role of education in preserving the planet as one of the main themes. Specifically, the event is meant to highlight the ways in which education can help students learn how to reverse unsustainable practices and live in closer harmony with the natural world. And, as Director General Audrey Azoulay emphasised in her official message on the occasion, everyone has a role to play.
