About the 2021 Summit theme

The COVID-19 Pandemic has caused the greatest worldwide disruption since the Second World War and education has not been spared. Billions have been kept out of schools and colleges, while others are struggling to transition to the workplace. Moreover, the pandemic struck at a time when the world was already facing multiple crises from climate change to growing inequality, and political instability, issues of great importance particularly for the young and the underprivileged, who have borne the brunt of the disruption, putting their future on hold to keep the frail and vulnerable safe.

And yet, as the world looks ahead hopefully to the end of the pandemic and deliberates how to build back better, the voices of the young and underprivileged are conspicuously absent from the discussions. One might say their voices have been muted.

It’s time to make things right. It’s time to empower this muted generation and fully harness their energy and enthusiasm in order to address the multiple crises facing our societies so that we can together reclaim our future. It’s time to Unmute!

More details about the program, the speakers and special features of the 2021 edition will soon be shared on the WISE website and on WISE’s social media accounts. Follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn for regular updates about the Summit.

Join us as we continue building the future of education! More information will be made available in September on opportunities to attend the Summit whether online or in-person, depending on the prevailing global pandemic context.
