World Book and Copyright Day 2009

Resolution of the TWENTY-EIGHTH SESSION OF THE GENERAL CONFERENCE OF UNESCO, (Paris, 25 October-16 November 1995): Proclamation of 23 April ‘World Book and Copyright Day


3.18 Proclamation of 23 April ‘World Book and Copyright Day’

Resolution adopted at the twenty-second plenary meeting, on 15 November 1995
The General Conference,
Considering that historically books have been the most powerful factor in the dissemination of knowledge and the most effective means of preserving it,
Considering consequently that all moves to promote their dissemination will serve not only greatly to enlighten all those who have access to them, but also to develop fuller collective awareness of cultural traditions throughout the world and to inspire behaviour based on understanding, tolerance and dialogue,
Considering that one of the potentially most effective ways to promote and to disseminate books – as shown by the experience of several UNESCO Member States – is the establishment of a ‘Book Day’ and the organization of events such as book fairs and exhibitions on the same day,
Noting furthermore that this idea has not yet been adopted at international level,
Adopts the above-mentioned idea and proclaims 23 April of every year ‘World Book and Copyright Day’, as it was on that date in 1616 that Miguel de Cervantes, William Shakespeare and Inca Garcilaso de la Vega died.

For the 2009 edition of the Day, UNESCO suggests to explore the topic of the paramount function of books for the development of quality education, as well as the link between publishing and human rights.

The message of the Director-General, the poster and information on the activities of the Day will be available soon.The World Book and Copyright Day Day was celebrated in the UK in Ireland earlier this month, on Thursday 5 March and around 13 million book tokens were distributed in schools and pre-schools in the UK to promote reading.
