Today is International Literacy Day, a day when UNESCO reminds us that literacy is a human right and the foundation of all learning. International Literacy Day coincides with our own Literacy is Life campaign in September.

This year’s theme is ‘Literacy and Sustainable Development’.

Literacy is one of the key elements needed to promote sustainable development, as it empowers people so that they can make the right decisions in the areas of economic growth, social development and environmental integration. Literacy is a basis for lifelong learning and plays a crucial foundational role in the creation of sustainable, prosperous and peaceful societies.
