San Marino post issued a set of stamps to commemorate teachers’ organizations worldwide. The World Teachers’ Day, held annually on October 5th, as decided by Unesco in 1993.
The set shows some stylized pupils listening to a teacher holding a book in his hand. They are standing on a pile of books, which means that roots and knowledge come from the same fertile soil.
Its aim is to mobilize support for teachers and to ensure that the needs of future generations will continue to be met by teachers.
According to UNESCO, World Teachers’ Day represents a significant token of the awareness, understanding and appreciation displayed for the vital contribution that teachers make to education and development.
Education International (EI) (the global union federation that represents education professionals worldwide) strongly believes that World Teachers’ Day should be internationally recognized and celebrated around the world.
EI also believes that the principles of the 1966 and 1997 Recommendations should be considered for implementation in all nations.
Over 100 countries observe World Teachers’ Day. The efforts of Education International and its 401 member organizations have contributed to this widely spread recognition. Every year, EI launches a public awareness campaign to highlight the contributions of the teaching profession.
The designer is Guido Scarabottolo, a graphic artist and illustrator.
