World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE) has selected 25 outstanding learners from 19 countries as the 2019-2020 cohort of the WISE Learners’ Voice programme.
Selected from a diverse pool of applicants, who demonstrated their commitment to the field of education, the cohort will convene for an in-person residential session in Doha from November 17 to 19 to participate in an action-based leadership and educational development module.
In addition to completing the residential training, fellows will participate in the WISE Summit 2019 to share their views and creative energies in addressing pressing global education issues and challenges.
Selected fellow Moiz Lakhani, a current student at McMaster University in Canada, said: “I’m ecstatic to be part of the WISE Learners’ Voice programme as it will provide me with a platform to engage with policy makers and educators in the field of education.
“I will also have the opportunity to voice my ideas and perspectives on the field of education at an international level. I hope to work closely with the WISE community to rethink and design the future of education, and to one day take on a leading role in this field.”
Participants will engage in a series of collaborative and interactive modules on topics ranging from communication skills to social innovation, delivered by WISE and partner organisations
Jasmin Higo, another selected fellow, who has been involved in educational and mentorship projects in Germany, Malaysia, the United States, and Ethiopia, said: “By offering the WISE Learners' Voice programme, young leaders from all over the world are able to find solutions to the toughest educational challenges facing communities around the world.”
The Learners’ Voice programme aims to bring 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.
