Event Description

What is International Literacy Day?

International Literacy Day is celebrated on 8 September to raise awareness of the importance of youth and adult literacy across the world.

In 2015 the global adult illiteracy rate is projected to reach 13.9%, with over781 million adults across the world unable to read or write. That translates toone in five people, with more than half of that figure comprised of women.

EPALE loves literacy

With the help of our partner, the European Basic Skills Network (EBSN), and our 30 national teams across Europe, EPALE has been hard at work promoting literacy and other life skills across Europe.

We’ll be celebrating International Literacy Day on 8 September with a range of activities and exclusive articles on literacy. There will be content published in the various language versions, so make sure you don’t miss out!

On 8 September, 13:00 CET, EPALE will host a live online discussion (in English) on how to improve adult literacy in Europe. EPALE users can ask experts their questions get involved in the discussion in real time. If you haven’t already, register now to the EPALE community!
