In the UoE seminar a special message was read by Dr Charles Hopkins, Chair of Reorienting Education towards Sustainable Development, UNESCO, in which he urged world leaders to invest in education on the occasion of World Education Day.

Addressing the ceremony, Prof Dr Talat Naseer Pasha said that education is not just the name of teaching, but a process through which an individual or a nation gains self-awareness, education gives a person the awareness to live. And it creates a sense of the goals and duties of life, through education a nation conveys its cultural, mental and intellectual heritage to future generations. He also said that education gives man the status of the crown of creation, and this is the reason why the importance of education is evident everywhere from religion to the world. Islam has declared the acquisition of knowledge as a duty and on the other hand, a few developed countries are ruling the entire world.

Chairman Punjab Higher Education Commission Prof Dr Shahid Munir said in his address that when Pakistan came into being, we got such an education system of foreigners, which was not compatible with our ground realities, due to which our country is still on the list of underdeveloped countries. Therefore, there is a need to promote not only quality education but an educational system that is compatible with the ground realities in our country.

At the end of the ceremony, Director Division of Education Professor Dr Muhammad Ayaz thanked the guests for their arrival. A large number of university faculty and students were present on this occasion.
