March 14th 2023, Doha – Qatar.
More than 800 decision-makers from the global education sector will come together at GEF & WISE at Medellin to discuss building the future of education in Latin America. Jointly organized by the Global Education Forum (GEF) and WISE, the one-day event is the biggest education gathering to be held in Latin America to date.
Taking place on 24 May 2023 in Medellin, Colombia, under the theme ‘Beyond Education – Involving a Whole Society in Learning’, the event will be hosted at EAFIT University, a leading education institution in Colombia, and will focus on strengthening the global education ecosystem and building new bridges, particularly in Latin America.
GEF & WISE at Medellin will be a global platform for debate and action for thought-leaders, practitioners, teachers, innovators, NGO’s and education stakeholders and experts to discuss cross-sector topics, including the future of education, learning ecosystems, entrepreneurship and sustainability, wellbeing and learning, and education leadership.
To stimulate debate, a program of pre- and post-forum activities will be held with various partners, including the Medellin Global Citizenship Challenge, an activity organized and hosted and funded by Colegio San Jose de Las Vegas, in which teams of students from different countries will work on projects to tackle real challenges faced by communities in Medellín. On 25 May, EAFIT University will also host the Festival de Futuros, an event focusing on future-oriented trends in education.
The forum will feature leading local partners including EAFIT University, Escuela Nueva Foundation (FEN), Pies Descalzos Foundation, Colegio San Jose de las Vegas, Marymount School, COMFAMA, Cosmo Schools, RUTA N, and the city government of Medellin.
