Subject Week: “World Book and Copyright Day”

April 24, 2023
Subject Week: “World Book and Copyright Day”

World Book and Copyright Day was established by a resolution of the 28th General Council of UNESCO in 1995. Through reading and the celebration of World Book and Copyright Day, 23 April, we can open ourselves to others despite distance, and we can travel thanks to imagination. UNESCO’s theme for 2023 – Indigenous Languages!
