"Education is the most powerful weapon, you can use to change the world." Nelson Mandela

Today, on the 24th of January, we are celebrating the International Day of Education. For most of us, receiving education is one of the most basic rights we have as humans. Usually we don't even dwell too much on the fact that the education might not be given to us the way it should be to achieve the best possible results. To encourage you to look at the topic of education from a different perspective I have gathered a list of 5 of my favourite TedTalks about education to celebrate this very special day.

Enjoy the watch!
