2013 WISE Summit “Reinventing Education for Life”
More than 1,200 prominent education, corporate, political and social leaders from over 100 countries took part in three days of debate, dialogue and networking.
Learning is fundamental to life. It is key to each individual’s ability to connect with others and to participate fully in professional, cultural and civic life. Learning is also about the ability to think independently, to adapt to change and to live meaningfully and well.
Too often, though, learners lack access to quality, relevant learning whether they are in the developed or developing world. Indeed, there is a widening gap between the learning we have and the learning we need to meet the challenges and aspirations of societies and individuals around the world.
To address this, the 2013 WISE Summit, Reinventing Education for Life, explored how innovation can close the gap between education, learning and life.
