Very honoured and thrilled to be elected among the International Honorary members of ⁦ @americanacad ⁩ - the highest national academic distinction, in the category of Scientific, Cultural and Nonprofit Leadership for 2020. Thank you!

@BkmCentre  Thank @americanacadyou  so much, dear Mr. Ban. It is an honor to serve as a member of the Ban Ki Moon Center for Global Citizens.

Let me congratulate also most sincerely @AminaJMohammed  with whom we have been elected International Honorary Members of the @americanacad  for 2020. We have defended together many causes, mostly the right to equitable, inclusive quality education for all, particularly for girls.

I joined with deep conviction other 140 world leaders and experts to launch the unprecedented call for guarantees that #Covidvaccines , diagnostics, tests and treatments will be provided free of charge to everyone, everywhere. This is justice for all.

What an extraordinary book, written by two extraordinary friends and teachers - @ElisaGuerraCruz ⁩ and @DoucetArmand ⁩. It shows us again how important are teachers in the lives of our children. Congratulations and good luck with the book!

I am so happy to be able to support you in these difficult and challenging for education and f times. I still believe - nothing can substitute a good teacher and you both prove it!

Happy to co-sign and support this important message of hope by @OfficeGSBrown ⁩ and @NOIweala ⁩ - the UN, G20 should turn this crisis into an opportunity to build a more effective multilateralism to address the challenges of the 21st century.

Congratulations! Hope you could come to my course on « Cultural Diplomacy Beyond National Interest »?

Happy to participate in this excellent and very inspiring day, reaffirming the imperative of accelerating progress towards the #SDGs  with #education  at its heart. The consequences of the #COVID__19  should make us more committed and not less!

I cannot agree more! With COVID-19 pandemic, it is critical indeed that education stays « at the heart of international solidarity efforts, from debt management and stimulus packages to global humanitarian appeals and official development assistance ».
