International Day of Education – 24 January

When it adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in September 2015, the international community recognized that education is essential for the success of all 17 of its goals. Sustainable Development Goal 4, in particular, aims to “ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all” by 2030.

January 24 was declared the International Day of Education by a resolution that was passed by the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) on 3rd December 2018. Thereafter, on 24th January 2019 the first International Day of Education was celebrated. The message by UNGA is being spread across the globe. Their sincere efforts worldwide have shown promising results in the betterment of an educated individual that constitutes a cultured society, which is supported with optimism and opportunities.

The fifth International Day of Education will be celebrated on 24 January 2023 under the theme “to invest in people, prioritize education”. Building on the global momentum generated by the UN Transforming Education Summit in September 2022, this year’s Day will call for maintaining strong political mobilization around education and chart the way to translate commitments and global initiatives into action. Education must be prioritized to accelerate progress towards all the Sustainable Development Goals against the backdrop of a global recession, growing inequalities and the climate crisis.

International Human Solidarity Day

The United Nations Millennium Declaration, signed in September 2000, adopted 60 goals which identified solidarity as one of the core values in international relations within the 21st century, particularly when combating global poverty and the increasing inequality it brings. 

Therefore, the UN General Assembly, convinced that the promotion of the culture of solidarity and the spirit of sharing is important for combating poverty, proclaimed 20th December as International Human Solidarity Day.

Today, in the context of globalization and the challenge of growing inequalities, the LAB4GE partners are convinced that strengthening the culture of solidarity and together taking action on gender issues is essential to effectively contribute to gender equality.

The LAB4GE partners would like to mark this day and raise awareness of this important issue. We hope that we all can find a way to start paying more attention to gender equality in computer literacy.

World Computer Literacy Day – 2nd December

Digital technology has changed the world. Particularly in the last 20 years, digital advances have enhanced social and business connectivity offered tech-based solutions for financial inclusion and increased access to trade and public services. But the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) reports that more than 50% of the world’s women are offline.

This phenomenon is often referred to as the gender digital divide, which describes ways in which gender inequality in the physical world is replicated in the digital world. This translates into large gaps in women’s and girls’ digital adoption, access and meaningful use compared to men and boys.
Every year, on 2nd December World Computer Literacy Day, is celebrated.

The LAB4GE partners would like to mark this day and raise awareness of this important issue. We hope that we all can find a way to start paying more attention to gender equality in computer literacy.

16 days of Activism Against Gender Violence

Violence against women is a sad and shameful reality happening in all societies and across the globe. Although it is rooted in gender inequalities, it also exists because we, as a society and individuals, far too often let it continue unnoticed. 

The LAB4GE partners would like to emphasize that violence against women is a human rights violation, and it negatively affects women’s general well-being and prevents women from fully participating in society. It impacts their families, their community, and the country at large. So we should all work together for a world where gender-based violence is unacceptable, where perpetrators are held accountable and victims receive the support they deserve.

World Food Day, 16th October

Leave No One Behind: Better production, better nutrition, a better environment and a better life.

2022 finds us with an ongoing pandemic, conflict, a climate that won’t stop warming, rising prices and international tensions. This is affecting global food security.

We need to build a sustainable world where everyone, everywhere has regular access to enough nutritious food. No one should be left behind.

Worldwide, more than 80 percent of the extreme poor live in rural areas and many rely on agriculture and natural resources for their living. They are usually the hardest hit by natural and man-made disasters and often marginalized due to their gender, ethnic origin, or status. It is a struggle for them to gain access to training, finance, innovation and technologies.

The Lab4GE partners recognize that Gender Equality builds a Sustainable World.
