Exhibition “Literacy Today”: International Literacy Day, September 8th

This year’s theme of the International Literacy Day is “Literacy in the Digital World”. The aim is to reflect on the types of literacy needed in a digitally mediated society and to explore effective policies and literacy programs in accordance with the possibilities of the digital world. The background to this year’s theme is the UNESCO Declaration on Inclusive and Equal Education and Lifelong Learning, Education 2030: Incheon Declaration and Framework for Action.

Digital technologies at an unprecedented rate of ground change the way we live, work, socialize, and learn. They provide new opportunities to improve all aspects of human life including access to information, knowledge management, networking, social services, industrial production, and mode of work.

However, those who do not have access to digital technologies and the required knowledge, skills and abilities may end up on the margins of digital society. Literacy is certainly one of those skills.

The fact remains that in today’s world, despite progress, at least 750 million adults and 264 million juveniles still lack basic literacy skills. It is up to us to take advantage of the environment we are in! We have extracted books that can help us move around in today’s world. The exhibition covered topics such as lifelong learning, digital economy, speech, presentation skills, public speaking, e-learning, media culture, verbal and non-verbal communication and business communication.
