World Teachers' Day 2020

The day celebrated to focus on the works of the educators is held by UNESCO in partnership with UNICEF, International Labour Organisation and Education International

The theme for World Teachers’ Day 2020 is “Teachers: Leading in Crisis, Reimagining the Future” aims to address the role the teachers have been playing during the COVID-19 pandemic. A UNESCO statement said: “The issue of teacher leadership in relation to crisis responses is not just timely, but critical in terms of the contributions teachers have made to provide remote learning, support vulnerable populations, reopen schools, and ensure that learning gaps have been mitigated. The discussions surrounding WTD [World Teachers’ Day] will also address the role of teachers in building resilience and shaping the future of education and the teaching profession.”

As the years passed Harvey Ball became concerned about the over-commercialization of his symbol, and how its original meaning and intent had become lost in the constant repetition of the marketplace. Out of that concern came his idea for World Smile Day®. He thought that we, all of us, should devote one day each year to smiles and kind acts throughout the world. The smiley face knows no politics, no geography and no religion.
