Breaking news

an exciting Congress year ahead!

As we welcome new opportunities to advance worldwide achievement of free quality public education for all in 2019, Education International wishes you and your families a happy new year!

The highlight of 2019 for Education International (EI) will be the 8th EI World Congress under the theme “Educators and their Unions Taking the Lead”, to be held from 19-26 July in Bangkok, Thailand.

The EI World Congress, the supreme decision-making body of Education International, determines the policies, actions, programme and budget of the organisation, and elects the President, Vice Presidents and General Secretary as well as members of EI’s Executive Board.

In 2019, through their collective voice, teachers and education support personnel will continue to  play a critical role improving the status of the teaching profession, as well as supporting the implementation of the sustainable development goals (SDGs), especially SDG4, “Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all”, and other, major long-standing priorities.

We anticipate serious, inspiring and productive discussions at Congress to guide EI  for the next four years on the advancement of the teaching profession and free, quality education, and the promotion of democracy, human and trade union rights.

The Education International Secretariat wishes you, your families, friends and colleagues a happy, and successful 2019!
