Recognizing a Right: Why We Need to Build an Accessible World

We all share the world. But what do we need to do to make that world truly accessible to everyone?

We invite you to join the Education City Speaker Series, in collaboration with the World Innovation Summit for Health (WISH), as we explore accessibility rights and the concept of disability justice with world-renowned expert and speaker Dr. Victor Santiago Pineda.

About ECSS

One of the defining elements of Qatar Foundation (QF) is its role in providing platforms – for education, for research and innovation, for community engagement and interaction, and for empowerment. And among the platforms that QF offers are those that illustrate the value of dialogue and discourse.

We believe that dialogue and discourse broaden perspectives, open minds, generate knowledge and solutions, provide people with a voice and the opportunity to make it heard, and underscore the importance of appreciating a broad spectrum of viewpoints.

Our role as a platform for dialogue and the exchange of knowledge is supported by the fact we welcome visitors from a wide array of fields, and from all over the world, to QF. This places us in a position to enable the community of Qatar to engage with people who have expertise, insight, perspectives to share, and stories and experiences to relate.

And we do this through the Education City Speaker Series (ECSS).
ECSS, launched in November 2018, aims to tackle key points related to current events, and the role we can play in making our campus a platform for open knowledge and discussion.

The ECSS aims to captivate audiences by providing a platform for speakers that are passionate in their fields of expertise. Each speaker in this open, unbiased platform presents information and concepts that may challenge the audience’s assumptions.

It allows QF and the public to listen to different viewpoints on vital subjects and gives them the opportunity to have a discussion with thought leaders.
