International Literacy Day 2020

8th September 2020

Event Overview

Since 1967, International Literacy Day (ILD) celebrations have taken place annually around the world to remind the public of the importance of literacy as a matter of dignity and human rights, and to advance the literacy agenda towards a more literate and sustainable society. Despite progress made, literacy challenges persist, and at the same time the demands for skills required for work, evolve rapidly.

Celebrations take place around the world. In schools, every day is Literacy day but why not do something a little different and try one of our ready planned and fully resources lesson plans; The Last Wild is wonderfully thought provoking.  And if that doesn't tickle your fancy, here's a link to 47 other Sustainable Learning teaching resources linked with reading.
