The WISE Awards

WISE Awards

2013 WISE Awards


Originating from Morocco, United Kingdom, Ireland, Canada, New Zealand and Saudi Arabia, the winning initiatives were selected by a Jury of leading education experts following a pre-selection of 14 WISE Awards finalists. All were chosen for their tangible, positive impact upon society and their innovative approach to solving important educational challenges. The six 2013 WISE Awards winning projects participated in a number of sessions at the 2013 WISE Summit in Doha, Qatar under the theme “Reinventing Education for Life”. They were also celebrated at the annual Gala Dinner Ceremony held on Day 2. 

Short documentary films on these six projects that have been produced in partnership with Euronews were broadcast at the 2013 WISE Summit.
