Wenhui ()Award for Educational Innovation 2019

Promoting University and School Partnerships in Advancing the Education 2030 Agenda

Results of the Wenhui Award 2019!

The theme of the Wenhui Award 2019, Promoting University and School Partnerships in Advancing the Education 2030 Agenda, aimed 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. This clearly reflected the need for education to flow seamlessly from early childhood education to tertiary education and beyond.

The challenges facing the world today are interconnected requiring multi-disciplinary approaches at all levels of education. The structure, context and reach of higher education systems in a globalized world present higher education institutions a huge responsibility and advantage in shaping the world’s economic, social and environmental state of affairs. Universities can increase their impact by working in close partnership with schools to benefit generations of children and youth.

The Wenhui Award organizers and Jury Members would like to commend all applicants for their contributions in providing quality education and lifelong learning opportunities for all, particularly those from disadvantaged groups. Seven applications were shortlisted for the Wenhui Award this year as listed below. After careful deliberation, the Jury selected two winners and two honourable commendations.

Congratulations to all!
