Through both the annual Summit and a range of ongoing programs WISE is promoting innovation and building the future of education through collaboration. WISE connects innovators and offers a global platform for the development of new ideas, supports innovative approaches to education and promotes successful practices from various sectors and from around the world to build the future of education.
The 2015 WISE Summit will convene November 3-5, in Doha, Qatar. Apply to attend.
Since 2009, WISE has brought together decision makers, influential experts and practitioners at an annual Summit in Doha, to explore groundbreaking innovations and take concrete steps to make significant improvements to worldwide education. The annual World Innovation Summit for Education is the premier international platform dedicated to innovation and creative action in education where top decision-makers share insights with on-the-ground practitioners and collaborate to rethink education.
The strength of the WISE Summit is its broad multi-sectoral base, which gathers individuals from all fields of the public and private sectors, who together harness their expertise in order to share solutions to the challenges facing education today and tomorrow.
The three-day Summit offers a convivial environment for interactive discussions with speakers, experts and members from the WISE Community. Attendees are given an opportunity to collaborate, share efficient practices and challenge their thinking during interactive Plenary Sessions and Debates. Focus Sessions highlight innovative practices or projects, along with Workshops to facilitate collaboration on specific issues. Guests connect with members of the WISE Community, including the holders of WISE Awards winning projects and Learners’ Voice student delegates.
A key highlight of the Summit is the announcement of the WISE Prize for Education laureate. The WISE Prize for Education is awarded to an individual or a team in recognition of an outstanding contribution to education. Furthermore, the six WISE Awards winning projects are also celebrated during the Summit.
The Summit offers a unique opportunity for all the participants to find out more about the most cutting-edge practices in education, network with high-level people from all sectors and from all countries, and to actively participate in building the future of education.
