The Forum will draw leaders and decision-makers from governments, businesses, civil society, schools & universities, international institutions, NGOs, grassroots movements, top-tier media, multimedia, art and other creative communities around the globe.
By driving innovation through the exchange of experiences and â€œsuccess storiesâ€ - as well as anticipating future trends, WISE will also identify and propel new education techniques, players and technologies that will enhance human capacity.
Benefiting from Doha's geopolitical location, at the crossroad of civilisations, the WISE Forum will allow participants to share opinions and visions while addressing key issues.
For the first edition, the Forum will focus on a theme that is locally and internationally vital, â€œGlobal Education: Working Together for Sustainable Achievementsâ€.
The main sub-themes of the forum will be addressed by internationally acclaimed, high-level keynote speakers and panellists.
Theme 1 - Pluralism: Creating education for respect and understanding, increasing access and equalities in a globalised education.
Theme 2 - Sustainability: Sustaining educational systems: funding, governance, meeting needs, and integration of various educational levels
Theme 3 - Innovation: Facilitating and driving change in content, access, and delivery
Addressed through plenary sessions and Innovation Workshops, taking place on November 16 - 18th, participants will share and create new ideas, best practices and experimental programs for the challenging issues in 21st century education.
