    World Poetry Day 2013

    Text: Solveig Hansen

    World Poetry Day, which is celebrated every March 21, was declared by UNESCO in 1999, to promote the reading, writing and teaching of poetry.

    “In a constantly evolving world, a world of rapid change and social transformation, poets have a presence alongside civil movements and know how to alert consciences to the world’s injustices as well as encourage appreciation of its beauty. We can also see potential in new technologies and short messages that circulate on social networks, breathing fresh life into poetry, fostering creativity and the sharing of poems and verses that can help us to engage more fully with the world.”

    Irina Bokova, Director-General of UNESCO

    Indian Poet and IFLAC Peace Ambassador Dr. Tholana Ashok Chakravarthy’s contribution to the global Poetry Day is Each One of Us. He encourages us all to promote and take part in the event.
