International Day of Education 2024

Wednesday 24 January is UNESCO’s International Day of Education. To celebrate we are sharing content from our research repository, ACU Research Bank.

UNESCO is dedicating this sixth observance of the day and theme "Learning for lasting peace," to the crucial role education and teachers play in countering hate speech, a phenomenon which has snowballed in recent years with the use of social media and damaging the fabric of our societies.
