About Wenhui Award for Educational Innovation 2019

 

Promoting University and School Partnerships in Advancing the Education 2030 Agenda

 

The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) have set an ambitious target to leave no one behind by calling on all stakeholders and partners to eradicate poverty, inequality and hunger; to provide quality universal education; to protect our planet; and to build sustainable cities, communities and societies. Of particular relevance to the education community is SDG 4-Education 2030 Agenda which aims to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all by 2030; and we have only 11 years left to meet this goal!

 

Clearly, from a lifelong learning perspective, education should flow seamlessly from cradle-to-grave. The transition from early childhood education, to primary and secondary education, and to post-secondary and tertiary education, as well in non-formal education, must not hinder learning at any stage.

 

Challenges facing the world today are interconnected requiring multidisciplinary solutions. Education is the main infrastructure to build sustainable development and sustainable societies, and the SDGs can only be achieved with quality education at all levels. The image of professors and students sitting in their ivory towers being detached from the ‘real’ world is no longer valid in the 21st century, as universities are reaching out to schools and communities, near and far, to improve the quality of education and make it more relevant. Working in partnership, universities and schools can increase their impact to benefit generations of children and youth by and beyond 2030.

 

Thus, the theme of the 2019 Wenhui Award, Promoting University and School Partnerships in Advancing the Education 2030 Agenda, aims to recognize successful university-school partnerships that have contributed to quality education and lifelong learning in preparing children and youth for life, work and citizenship.

 

Two individuals or institutions from the Asia and Pacific region will be selected by a jury of distinguished educators. The winners will each receive a Certificate of Excellence and prize money of US$ 20,000. Certificates of Merit may also be awarded to individuals or institutions that have demonstrated commendable innovative practices.
