IT is not difficult to detect a celebratory mood in Doha, Qatar these days. The joy of winning the bid to host the World Cup in 2022 — making Qatar the first Arab nation to do so — is still very much in the air. Come next month, it’s the Asian Cup in Qatar. It looks as though planning has started. The use of cruise ships to accommodate some 400,000 fans and 32 competing teams has been mooted. But last week, the city and nation were busy hosting some 1,200 educational and intellectual leaders from more than 100 countries at the second edition of the World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE). The forum, which is fast becoming the world’s largest on education, has been described as an original and creative initiative under the auspices of the Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development. The foundation is committed to advancing educational practices worldwide by promoting innovation and high-level dialogue.
