In 2022, the celebrations of World Teachers’ Day will focus on the theme “The transformation of education begins with teachers”.
The official celebration event will be opened by Ms Stefania Giannini, UNESCO’s Assistant Director-General for Education, followed by statements from the representatives of the Co-Convening Partners: the International Labour Organization (ILO), UNICEF, and Education International (EI).
World Teachers’ Day 2022 at UNESCO Headquarters will include the awarding ceremony of the UNESCO-Hamdan Prize for Teacher Development and a series of other in-person and online events.
