International Literacy Day

8 September was International Literacy Day. Despite advancements in the global literacy agenda, much remains to be done as 750 million adults still lack basic reading and writing skills. UIL is committed to advancing the literacy agenda, on Literacy Day and on every other day: Read about the freshly launched ‘Hamburg Education Talks’, the first of which took place on 6 September on the theme ‘Illiteracy in Hamburg – Does it really exist?’. Learn about the UNESCO – Microsoft Project ‘Advancing Mobile Literacy Learning’ and explore interesting case studies on literacy in relation to the reintegration of prisoners, poverty reduction, civic participation and improved well-being in UIL’s Effective Literacy and Numeracy Practices Database and other projects.
