International Literacy Day
September 8, 2022
Since 1967, International Literacy Day (ILD) celebrations have taken place annually around the world on September 8 to remind the public of the importance of literacy as a matter of dignity and human rights, and to advance the literacy agenda towards a more literate and sustainable society. Despite progress made, literacy challenges persist with at least 773 million young people and adults lacking basic literacy skills today.
