Stay tuned with the official hashtag for #LiteracyDay and follow #50ILD for 50 facts on literacy towards the ILD


A special hashtag has been created to promote the 50th anniversary of International Literacy Day #50ILD with 50 facts on literacy. You can follow and share the countdown campaign on Twitter from 15 August towards the ILD celebrations on 8 September.

Please follow the generic hashtag for #LiteracyDay on the 8 September and for updates about International Literacy Day around the world before, during and after the event.

It would be wonderful if you could help us spread the word about Literacy Day; share the ILD social media campaign on Twitter, Facebook and on Instagram, and emphasise the importance of literacy in the 21st century.
