The WISE Learners’ Voice Program brings 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. The Program is based on the idea that when learners are co-creators of their learning environments, they become active participants invested as stakeholders in the progress of their communities. The Program focuses on building knowledge of education, social entrepreneurship, leadership, and communication skills.
The Learners’ Voice Program was established in 2010 to engage the views and creative energies of young people in addressing pressing global education issues and challenges. The current Learners’ Voice community comprises over 200 Learners from many countries, including Qatar. They represent different backgrounds and disciplines but all share a passion for education. Together they represent a unique perspective within the WISE community
WHAT IS THE WISE LEARNERS’ VOICE PROGRAM?
The WISE Learners’ Voice Program brings 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. The revised 2019 Learners’ Voice Program aims to give young people a platform to voice their views and to create a youth community interested in shaping the future of education. At WISE, we believe in empowering young people by ensuring that their views are included at WISE 2019.
The threefold objectives of the program to give young people:
- The tools and resources they need to ensure their voices are heard
- A platform to voice their opinions and discuss with policy makers, educators and innovators in education
- An opportunity to participate and engage at WISE 2019 and to have their work creative work published by WISE.
The 2019 Learners’ Voice Program will serve as a unique opportunity for motivated young people to join peers from around the world to voice their collective aspirations for education. Through interactive workshops, experiential sessions and creative exercises, Learners will gain the skills and mindsets required to forge their place in designing the future of education.
Alumni from past Learners’ Voice cohorts will be actively involved in the delivery of this program.
