2012 Summit Program

The World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE) will convene for its fourth annual Summit November 13 to 15, 2012 in Doha, Qatar. The 2012 Summit's theme is “Collaborating for Change”.

This year more than 1,000 prominent education, corporate, political and social leaders from over 100 countries will gather for the Summit at the Qatar National Convention Centre in Doha to explore how collaboration in many forms and at many levels can become the driving force of efforts to inspire innovation in education and to design long-term strategies for its renewal. WISE is an ideal platform for multi-sectoral collaboration in building the future of education. The Summit offers a unique opportunity to education experts, academicians, policy makers from diverse backgrounds. 

High-Level Interactive Sessions

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 best practices and challenge their thinking during interactive Plenary Sessions and Debates.  Focus Sessions highlight innovative Best Practices or projects, along with Workshops to facilitate collaboration on specific issues. Guests are also given  opportunities to connect with members of the WISE Community, including the holders of the 2012 WISE Awards winning projects and this year’s Learners’ Voice student delegates. Also, the WISE Prize for Education, now in its second year, will be awarded during the Summit to an individual or a team in recognition of an outstanding contribution to education. Guests will witness the address by the newly recognized 2012 Laureate at this prestigious event.

More than 50 sessions of the Summit and all the related activities are 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.
