The WISE Learners’ Voice Program brings the perspectives of young people to the challenge of rethinking education and equips them to take on leading roles in their fields and in the world of education. The Program is based on the conviction that when learners are co-creators of their learning environments, they become active participants invested as stakeholders in the progress of their communities. The Program focuses on building knowledge of education, leadership, and communication skills. The Learners participate in the global biennial summit and in a residential session delivered by expert faculty.
The Learners’ Voice Program was established in 2010 to engage the views and creative energies of young people in addressing pressing global education issues and challenges. The current Learners’ Voice community comprises over 160 Learners from over 60 countries. They represent different backgrounds and disciplines but all share a passion for education. Together they represent a unique perspective within the WISE community.
