As we enter February, I continue to be both pleased and excited about the progress of the ‘communicate and connect for change' campaign. Just in case you missed it, the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed 24 January as International Day of Education
, in celebration of the role of education for peace and development. I would encourage all members to consider how you might plan to celebrate this day in 2020. In the meantime, you may wish to begin plans for celebrating World Teacher Day
. Held annually on 5 October since 1994, World Teachers’ Day commemorates the anniversary of the signing of the 1966 ILO/UNESCO Recommendation concerning the Status of Teachers.
