International Literacy Day

The issue of literacy is a key component of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, adopted by world leaders in September 2015, promotes, as part of its agenda, universal access to quality education and learning opportunities throughout people’s lives. Sustainable Development Goal 4 has as one of its targets ensuring all young people achieve literacy and numeracy and that adults who lack these skills are given the opportunity to acquire them.

Why Do We Mark International Days?

SustainableOman, as a supporter of the SDGs and Oman Vision 2040, has embraced them as a a powerful advocacy tool. Each international day offers many actors the opportunity to organise activities related to the theme of the day.

SustainableOman makes an international day, in addition to the Sultanate’s special days, a part of our awareness building campaign.
