Apply now and get involved: WISE 2019 – Doha, Qatar – Nov 19-21

Join us to “UnLearn, ReLearn: What it means to be Human”

Our world as we know it is changing rapidly. We struggle to keep up with what we have created and continue to create.

We face shrinking development cycles coupled with the near instantaneous spread of ideas and information. The accelerated pace of change impacts the relevance and validity of what we think we know. We can no longer rely on a standard, fixed stock of knowledge to progress and prosper throughout our lives. Instead, we need to become lifelong learners who continuously develop and practice core character traits and skills. Traits and skills such as resilience, empathy, perseverance, creativity, imagination and collaboration.

These are the traits and skills that make us UNIQUELY HUMAN.

In order to get there, we need to rethink what we know about education and the way we learn.

What is the purpose of education and what does it mean for the human experience?

At WISE, we believe education is a cornerstone for strong, prosperous and secure societies. The biennial Summit in Doha will focus on why and how individuals, societies and ecosystems can unlearn-learn-relearn what we know to become lifelong-learners to thrive in the unknown future.

Through the prism of unlearning and relearning, up to 2,000 educators, decision-makers, and influential experts from the public and private sectors will discover and deep-dive into a range of topics that are influencing the future of teaching and learning, including mindfulness, well-being, the role of emerging technologies, and learning and behavioral sciences.
