The Director-General is taking part in the annual World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE)


The Summit is organized in Doha, on 29-31 October 2013, under the theme ‘Reinventing Education for Life.’ This forum offers a unique opportunity for participants from over 100 countries to explore and share cutting-edge practices in education, to dialogue and network and to take an active part in building the future of education.

On 31 October, the Director-general will address the joint WISE-UNESCO Special Plenary Session ‘Education Challenges in a Changing World’. This Special Plenary Session is intended to broaden the current debates on education in the post-2015 international development framework and to help shape the vision of the future of learning. This will be done by exploring how a humanistic and integrated vision of lifelong learning may be best reflected in the global education agenda.
