The International Day of Education is celebrated on January 24th. The day was launched by the United Nations in December 2018 - that means since merely 2 years. Nevertheless, since the beginning of the Corona pandemic in early 2020, it has become more clear than ever that education is not only an extremely important issue, but also a very fragile one. Schoolchildren around the world have been suffering from school closures as well as learning and teaching restrictions for almost a year now. For many, this means that they can no longer continue their education or they can only do so under difficult circumstances. Therefore, the third International Day of Education deserves all the more attention and appreciation.
