About the Organization

UNESCO is the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization. It contributes to peace and security by promoting international cooperation in education, sciences, culture, communication and information. UNESCO promotes knowledge sharing and the free flow of ideas to accelerate mutual understanding and a more perfect knowledge of each other's lives. UNESCO's programmes contribute to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals defined in the 2030 Agenda, adopted by the UN General Assembly in 2015.

About the Prize

The UNESCO King Hamad Bin Isa Al-Khalifa Prize for the Use of ICT in Education recognizes innovative approaches in leveraging new technologies to expand educational and lifelong learning opportunities for all, in line with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its Goal 4 on education.

Established in 2005 with the support of the Kingdom of Bahrain, the Prize rewards individuals and organizations that are implementing outstanding projects and promoting the creative use of technologies to enhance learning, teaching and overall educational performance in the digital age. An international Jury selects two best projects annually. Each prizewinner receives US$ 25,000, a medal and a diploma during a ceremony at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris. Every year the Prize has a specific theme, which, while being in line with UNESCO’s mandate and values, advocates for responsible and ethical use of information and communication technologies.

Theme for 2022: The use of public platforms to ensure inclusive access to digital education content.

The 2022 edition follows immediately the release of “Call to Action: Assuring and improving quality public digital learning for all” during the Transforming Education Summit (TES) in September 2022, which reaffirms that the digital revolution must be harnessed to ensure the provision of quality education and lifelong learning as a public good and a human right for all, with a particular focus on the most marginalized.

The 2022 edition, therefore, focuses on three keys to universal public digital education, rewarding projects that have made public digital learning platforms and digital content universally accessible, developed digital competencies for all teachers and learners, and promoted universal connectivity in education.
