We are delighted to announce that we are 2017 WISE Awards Finalists! The World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE) rewards organisations for their innovative and impactful approaches to today’s most urgent education challenges, and we are thrilled to be recognised alongside some very impressive projects.
The WISE Awards gives us the opportunity to showcase our mission, to democratise access to learning by making high-quality textbooks for secondary schools and monographs freely available online alongside inexpensive printed editions. Alessandra Tosi, our Managing Director, said: “We are delighted to receive this nomination, which recognizes our success in reaching readers in the developing world. At a time when online education is expanding, our developing list of free-to-read online textbooks and monographs is a much-needed resource to help support education worldwide.”
This news comes at an exciting time for OBP. We are about to publish our 100th book, a milestone we’re really looking forward to celebrating, and we also hope to have some news to share with you soon about a new development, so watch this space…
