[apeid.higher_education.bgk] Invitation to submit narratives of teachers for World Teacher's Day Forum, 5-6 Oct, Bangkok

UNESCO Bangkok is organizing the World Teachers' Day (WTD) Forum, 5-6 October 2016 in Bangkok. The WTD theme this year is "Valuing Teachers, Improving their Status".  We would like to feature stories about teachers as part of this event.


As such, we hope to collect narratives (text and images) of teachers' valuable impact in students' lives.


The invitation is open to all Pre-schools, K-12 schools and TVET Institutions. The narratives could be directly submitted to us by members of the school community and the local community / families. We would appreciate the dissemination of the invitation to include the following details:
