World Teachers Day

Academic and political freedom in Turkey was one of the priorities agreed by this year’s UCU Congress

To celebrate this year’s World Teachers Day, UCU are supporting an event [with the NUT and Amnesty] on Turkey around the theme of “Teachers will not be silenced”.
The event will be held at NUT HQ in Mabledon Place, WC1H 9BD, on the evening of Wed 5 October.
The key note speaker will be from our sister union in Turkey, Egitim-Sen, but there will also be contributions from Education International, Amnesty, NUT and UCU (Rob Goodfellow, UCU President, has agreed to speak), followed by an informal reception with refreshments and cultural activities, organised by Day-Mer.

Initial details are available on Eventbrite...
