Let's celebrate the pleasure of learning

This Friday, 24th January, is the International Day of Education proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly to celebrate the role of education for peace and development.

This year's theme is announced by UNESCO as follows: "International Day of Education 2020 will position education and the learning it enables as humanity’s greatest renewable resource and reaffirm the role of education as a fundamental right and a public good. It will celebrate the many ways learning can empower people, preserve the planet, build shared prosperity and foster peace."

Several initiatives around the world are mobilizing to organize activities to celebrate the joy of learning on January 24th. If you are in Paris, we invite you to participate in the 1st Learning Planet Festival - organized by the Centre de Recherches Interdisciplinaires (CRI), UNESCO and a network of partners.

Celebrating the pleasure of learning

International  Day of Education is an opportunity to celebrate the joy of learning, to thank all those who helped us yo raise, to take a minute to remind ourselves of our studies, our experiences, our exchanges and the way we love to learn.

Do you have something you dream of teaching someone else? Do it tomorrow!

Do you have something you dream of learning for yourself? Learn it tomorrow!

Do you have someone you want to thank for what he or she has taught you? Tell him tomorrow!

Science and Technology Week

In the Democratic Republic of Congo, with the Science and Technology Week, it is the pleasure of learning, teaching and sharing Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics that we promote and celebrate every year since 2014.

Every year when I walk through the Science Village booths, I am moved and amazed by the joy on the faces of the children and adults who learn there while having fun and who are sometimes surprised to know so little.

Improving the quality of teaching and learning in our schools (www.peqpesu.com) and offering moments of learning through games and discovery as during Science and Technology Week effectively empower people to take action to preserve the planet, build shared prosperity and promote peace.

We look forward to seeing you in Kinshasa from 17th to 22nd April 2020 to continue this celebration- www.semainedelasciencerdc.org.

Learning is fun, join us ! 😉
