2. WORLD TEACHERS’ DAY (05/10)

The BEHAS project celebrates one international day of great importance among the European Days selected. In particular, the project recognizes the value of teachers in education and focuses on them (and on us, as BEHAS concerns thousands of teachers working for/with the partners in primary education and in other grades of education). The World Teachers’ Day, or else the International Teachers’ Day, is held annually on October 5. Established in 1994, it commemorates the signing of the 1966 “Teaching in Freedom”. It is celebrated around the world since 1994 after the UNESCO/ILO Recommendation concerning the Status of Teacher.

The status of the teacher and his/her role in education is one of the primary objectives of BEHAS on the occasion of the World Teachers’ Day. Personal “success” stories, best teaching practices, teaching aids and tools are going to be discussed and translated in the Action Plans of BEHAS for this very important and honorable day.

Teachers from all the partner countries are invited to reflect on their practices and theories, while the activities organized will honor this significant profession which is strongly connected with our way of life and our socialization from our early childhood and on.

Socrates, the Greek philosopher, in order to signify the importance of thinking in learning famously stated that ““I cannot teach anybody anything. I can only make them think” and our project welcomes teachers to be learners continually and invites all the participants into designing and organizing teacher training events.

Our aim is to enhance the role of a Teacher who thinks in a European and International manner and who, eventually, not only brings Europe, but the whole world home at school.
