The World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE) was established by Qatar Foundation in 2009 under the patronage of its Chairperson, Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser. WISE is an international, multi-sectoral platform for creative thinking, debate and purposeful action in order to build the future of education through innovation.

WISE is now an ongoing initiative and a global reference in new approaches to education. Through both the annual Summit and a range of continuing programs WISE is promoting collaboration and building the future of education.

How and what we learn profoundly shapes our lives, perspectives and opportunities. To convey the power of this lifelong process and the importance of education, WISE wants to share your stories worldwide. Go beyond formal studies, concepts and speeches to demonstrate how essential, diverse and powerful learning can be.

We invite you to tell your story in a short video on the theme “How learning changed my life”. From now until mid-September, WISE invites you to share an experience, a memory, thoughts or advice on the transformative impact of education. We will be collecting testimonials and compiling the most compelling ones into a series of short films to be presented at WISE 2013 and made available online. These videos will demonstrate the power and diversity of learning. They will feature people of all ages and backgrounds from around the world.
