This time we are rejoicing the same amidst the ongoing global pandemic. Aptly themed “Teachers: Leading in crisis, reimagining the future”, the ‘day provides the occasion to celebrate the teaching profession worldwide, take stock of achievements, and draw attention to the voices of teachers, who are at the heart of efforts to attain the global education target of leaving no one behind’.

The discussions surrounding WTD will also address the role of teachers in building resilience and shaping the future of education and the teaching profession.
