World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE) 2021 was held both physically at the Qatar National Convention Center and virtually for more than 10,000 participants worldwide.
The 10th edition of its summit will take place from Dec. 7-9 under the theme “Generation Unmute: Reclaiming our Future through Education”.
Qatar Foundation (QF) Chairperson Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser participated in the opening session of the World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE) 2021 on Tuesday.
The Summit will bring together over 300 thought leaders in education, world-class experts, and influential young voices from around the globe to address current education challenges across more than 190 sessions, ranging from in-person to fully virtual and hybrid platforms. Global audiences will have the opportunity to participate in live sessions at the Qatar National Convention Centre (QNCC) as well as in online discussions via the WISE virtual platform.
In her opening speech, Sheikha Moza stressed the importance of empowering youth with quality education.
"From the primary stage of basic education, curricula must be created to mould individuals and build a generation that is armed with knowledge and expertise, to allow them to participate in decision-making and contribute to solving global challenges. Indeed, our journey in establishing Qatar Foundation was founded on this belief,” Sheikha Moza added.
Sheikha Moza also presented the 2021 WISE Prize for Education to Wendy Kopp, Co-Founder and CEO of Teach for All. Through Teach for All, Kopp is recognized for developing the concept that meaningful, sustainable education changes need leaders who are rooted in their communities and believe in the potential to transform them to deliver the opportunities all children deserve.
