UNESCO has just opened its call for applications for the prestigious UNESCO International Literacy Prizes. All champions in the field of literacy learning are encouraged to apply and nominating entities to be ready to engage and nominate their favourite candidates from around the world. Like every year, UNESCO will reward six individuals or organizations for their outstanding projects that promote literacy learning and for this year’s edition are requested to reflect around the theme ‘Transforming literacy learning spaces’.
The theme aims to present the different existing learning spaces (work, school, family, learning centers) and highlight the relation and various interconnections among them.
Since 1967, the UNESCO International Literacy Prizes have rewarded excellence and innovation in the field of literacy. Over 506 projects and programmes around the world have already received recognition and support for their excellent work.
- Deadline for candidates to submit applications to nominating entities: 6 June 2022 (midnight, Paris time).
