Literacy and skills development

On 8 September 2018, International Literacy Day will be celebrated around the world with the theme ‘Literacy and skills development’. Despite progress made, literacy challenges persist, and at the same time the demands for skills required for work, evolve rapidly. This year, ILD explores and highlights integrated approaches that simultaneously can support the development of literacy and skills, to ultimately improve people’s life and work and contribute to equitable and sustainable societies.

This year’s theme ‘Literacy and skills development’ focuses on youth and adults within the lifelong learning framework, the effective linkages between literacy and skills will be explored. For ILD 2018, ‘skills’ means knowledge, skills and competencies required for employment, careers, and livelihoods particularly technical and vocational skills, along with transferable skills and digital skills.
