Literacy Day

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  Literacy is a key lever of change and a practical tool of empowerment on each of the three main pillars of sustainable development:  economic development, social development and environmental protection.

Literacy skills developed from a basic to advanced level throughout life are part of broader competencies required for critical thinking, the sense of responsibility, participatory governance, sustainable consumption and lifestyles, ecological behaviours, biodiversity protection, poverty reduction, and disaster risk reduction.
