Happy to teach: Strengthening supportive school communities 

Date and time: Wednesday, 4 October 2023, 14:00–15:30 GMT+2 / Paris 


You are warmly invited to join UNESCO for Part 3 of our webinar series "Happiness in and for learning" exploring the four pillars of the Happy Schools Framework: people, process, place and principles.

On 4 October from 14:00-15:30 GMT+2 / Paris, in celebration of World Teachers' Day, the webinar will share international perspectives on the importance of supporting teacher and student well-being by strengthening relationships to create a happy school environment. 

As the third of four focused webinars, this 90-minute discussion will explore the people pillar of the Happy Schools Framework, which concerns the well-being, work conditions, skills, and interpersonal relationships between the main actors within school communities.

With expert speakers, we will discuss systemic changes needed to improve relationships between teachers, students, parents, school leaders, staff, community members, and managers to establish and sustain positive learning environments where teachers are happy to teach and students are happy to learn.  

The webinar will take place in English and Spanish.
