International Day of Education 2024

The International Day of Education symbolizes the recognition of education as a fundamental human right, a public asset, and a collective responsibility. In light of this, the United Nations General Assembly designated the 24th of January each year as the International Day of Education. This day is commemorated to honour the pivotal role that education plays in fostering peace and promoting development. In collaboration with the Ministry of Education, Qatar Foundation has chosen to mark this occasion annually with the theme: "Education is Everyone's Responsibility."

As we celebrate the International Day of Education with the support of the Ministry of Education and Higher Education, we invite parents to get more involved. This special occasion is a chance for parents to visit their kids' schools and take part in activities like meetings, workshops, and community events. Parents can also spend time with their children during the school day.

We are excited to invite you to join us at the Ceremonial Court in Education City, where you can participate in a variety of activities, workshops, and panel discussions that promise to be both informative and engaging.
