  • The Covid-19 pandemic has revealed that global supply chains are a huge house of cards
    Covid-19 has laid bare many uncomfortable truths regarding society's overall preparedness for low-probability but high-impact events, especially global ones. These range from issues pertaining exclusively to pandemic readiness (like our domestic capacity to produce personal protective equipment, ventilators, sanitiser and vaccines) to matters that are considerably less esoteric, like the ability of global supply chains to operate regardless of the various stresses put upon them.

Special edition e-book captures responses from education's frontline during Covid-19

Wise, a Qatar Foundation global education think-tank, in partnership with Salzburg Global Seminar and Diplomatic Courier, has officially released a special e-book titled Education Disrupted, Education Reimagined - Responses from education's frontline during the Covid-19 pandemic and beyond.
The special edition e-book was produced in real time, as Wise, in partnership with Salzburg Global Seminar, convened key stakeholders and education leaders from over 98 countries in a three-part series of global conferences aimed at bringing the global education community together. The result was a contemporary historical record of how schools, NGOs, governments, and international organisations responded to school closures during the crisis and how they are attempting to use this crisis as a springboard to reimagine — and even transform — education in their communities and countries.

The e-book offers an opportunity to a global audience to make sense of what happened, but it also offers a breeding ground of ideas from some of the world’s top education thinkers.

“It is our hope that this publication will provide the education community with a reference point from the crisis from which future research, policy, and innovation can grow,” said Dr Asmaa Al-Fadala, editor of the publication and Director of Research and Content Development at Wise.

Contributors include:

  • Her Excellency Sheikha Hind bint Hamad Al-Thani
  • The Right Honorable Gordon Brown
  • Marc A. Brackett
  • Andreas Schleicher
  • Stefania Giannini

  • Olli-Pekka Heinonen
