Sustainability, Inclusivity Strong Themes at Wise’s Doha Learning Days
Doha, February 04 (QNA) – The World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE) Doha Learning Days Festival has wrapped up its successful fourth edition. Hosted by WISE, the festival curated a wealth of meaningful informal learning opportunities, welcoming thousands of school students, youth, and families at Msheireb Museums.
A rich program focused on youth empowerment through activities such as entrepreneurship and financial literacy masterclasses, interactions with emerging technologies such as robotics, and sessions to enrich personal growth. WISE, Qatar Foundation’s (QF) global education initiative, developed the festival program with more than 20 local content partners, including ministries, higher education institutions, private sector entities, non-governmental organizations, and several QF entities.
Stavros N. Yiannouka, CEO of WISE, said: “Doha Learning Days was everything it promised to be: an extraordinary opportunity for informal learning with a strong sense of community. It was incredible to host the festival at Msheireb Museums and to work alongside our strategic partners, our content collaborators, and the 2022 WISE Awards winners. We extend our deepest appreciation to each of them for their strong commitment to WISE’s vision. Bringing experiential learning to enhance the local education ecosystem will benefit educators and learners in the future. We look forward to taking forward these discussions with our global network at the WISE Summit in November.”
Ali Mohamed Al Kuwari, Acting CEO of Msheireb Properties, said: “Msheireb Museums is proud to have collaborated with WISE to host this valuable learning festival for our students and the community to expand their education and creativity. We are committed to strengthening community partnerships and promoting educational programs to continue cultivating human capital development in Qatar.” (QNA)
