2010 WISE chooses summit theme

The second World Innovative Summit on Education (WISE) in Qatar has chosen “The Future of Education” as its theme this year.

In today's rapidly evolving world where technology has become part of our daily lives, there is a growing need to develop education, stressed the delegates. 

High on the agenda were methods of working out innovative solutions and meeting the challenges of funding, Euronews reported 

“You have to prioritize, give it a priority in the sense that we all have problems, but government owes it to the people to provide the funding. Because education is very essential, so if you have a budget, you allocate an adequate amount of money for education,” said Hamidoun Ali, the President of the UN Economic and Social Council 

The forum was held from 7 to 9 of December, 2010, in Doha, Qatar. 

The summit has become an annual platform for more than 1,200 delegates from around the world - teaching professionals, decision-makers and business leaders - to share ideas and come up with innovative solutions to the problems of providing education. 

The organizers of the forum unveiled the first international award for next year which brings with it a cheque for nearly 400,000 euros.
