“Recovery Begins with Teachers”
Live testimonies from teachers supporting recovery worldwide and a photo exhibition which shows teachers in demanding situations were among the high points of the World Teachers’ Day celebrations on 5 October in UNESCO’s headquarters in Paris.

The “Tribute to Teachers” exhibition, inaugurated by the Director-General of UNESCO, was made available online for a month via a virtual exhibition.

The day’s activities also included presentations of the latest statistics on teachers; initiatives to promote excellence in teaching; developments from the Task Force on Teachers for Education For All; teacher education activities of the UN Relief and Works Agency and how new technologies can accelerate teacher development.
