2021 International Day of the Educating City
On 30 November we celebrate the International Day 2021.
This is the the sixth edition of the International Day of the Educating City, an event in which over 300 cities from 20 countries around the world have taken part so far.
The Educating City understands education as a collective heritage, the joint responsibility of all social players, including the city itself, to redress inequalities and to guarantee quality education for everyone. Because in the Educating City, diversity in all its dimensions is a source of wealth and learning and where everyone has the right to receive and to contribute.
The slogan of this edition, marked by the pandemic and the difficult situation we are facing, is: “The Educating City leaves no one behind”. Now more than ever, the Educating Cities must stand by the people who need the most support, to make this recovery inclusive. This will require strengthening municipal action in the light of the values of the Charter, namely equal opportunities, inclusion, social progress and sustainable growth.
Check out the event website to explore the activities organised by member cities. read the Manifesto by IAEC Mayors, the Institutional Greeting by the IAEC Delegated Chairman and much more! You will also find the latest news at our social networks @educatingcities.
Many thanks to the over 170 cities that participate in the event and keep working together so that nobody is left behind!
