EI: New podcast marks 25 years of solidarity with education workers

published 15 February 2018 updated 15 February 2018

As Education International (EI) celebrates its 25th anniversary, a new podcast helps us look back to past achievements that have helped thousands of teachers deliver quality education, no matter the circumstances.

EI is the global union federation of more than 32 million education sector workers. With 25 years to look back on, the organisation has many stories to tell: from its co-operation with the International Labour Organisation (ILO) in the fight for better working conditions to immediate relief action when schools are hit by natural disasters, and the protection of politically persecuted educators in countries where freedom of speech is more a dream than a reality.

This podcast illustrates some of the above-mentioned examples through the voice of leaders, educators and EI staff who were on the ground, together with affiliates, making the organisation stronger and a strong actor in the international arena.
