I know that I already gave you some pretty sweet book quotes to pretty up your computers and tablets this week, but since today is International Literacy Day I wanted to give you four more! A sad but all-too-true fact is that literacy is an amazing gift that not everyone is given. Since 1966, UNESCO has been bravely bringing literacy to the world. Literacy is a key component to Sustainable Development Goal 4, aiming to “ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all”.
Not only is this the 50th anniversary of International Literacy Day, but it's also the first year in the 203o Agenda for Sustainable Development. Their vision of literacy will focus lifelong learning opportunities with special focus on youth and adults throughout the world. Want to know how you can get involved? Check out the UN's "The Lazy Person's Guide to Saving the World".
