The pandemic has highlighted the irreplaceable value of the teaching profession in society, not to mention the difficult working conditions they are facing. Teachers, the vast majority of whom are women, have been on the front line in ensuring the continuity of teaching when schools were closed, and in providing socio-emotional support to their students, especially the most vulnerable ones.

Work overload, accumulated stress, one’s emotional state  or a lack of support are some of the causes that  can lead to high levels of demotivation, teachers on sick leave, absenteeism and poor work achievement. It is essential to take care of the mental health of teachers, as it guarantees the emotional well-being and commitment of students and translates into educational quality.

This year WE SPEAK OUT FOR TEACHERS!

Mobilise and Speak Out

#One Billion Voices encourages mobilisation through global action to address the most urgent education crisis of all time. In Spain, it is an opportunity for the educational community and citizens to unite and demand adequate funding for education.

The activity is designed to be carried out after having worked in the classroom, or in other non-formal educational spaces, on the educational proposals presented in the teaching unit.

Manifesto

What is the GAWE?

This is a week in which over 124 countries – working to guarantee the right to education – take action to grab the attention of the educational community, the media, society in general and above all, political representatives, about the need to make the right to  quality education real and effective for everyone in the world, framed within the 2030 Agenda SDG 4: Guarantee an inclusive, equitable and quality education.

This year, under the slogan “A billion voices”, the #GAWE2022 will address the key role of teachers in these times of crisis.
This year we will work through the media to speak out for teachers..
