Doha Learning Days (DLD), the country’s first experiential learning festival organised by World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE), is presenting a wide choice of innovative activities for the entire spectrum of the community, including a space for ‘Wellness & Community Activities’.
One of the popular sessions among the youth is ‘Unlearning Through Football’, presented by Generation Amazing, the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy’s football for development programme. Student participants get to test their communication and team building skills during a game of football that shines the spotlight on rules they have developed. 
Among the other ‘Wellness and Community Activities’ is The Library of Wonders, presented by Qatar Reads. Students participate in a challenging but fun exercise to solve riddles. Youngsters have also been discovering the rich benefits of combining classical music, meditation and self-expression in an expansive art workshop at ‘Pallas Arts, Colouring the Lives of Children’.
The importance of physical fitness are also being highlighted through practical sessions by Crossfit trainers and a talk with athletes and coaches. Yama Yoga have hosted a number of sessions around meditation and well-being, while Doha’s Swasthi Yoga are offering classes to help people counteract issues such as stress and anxiety.
DLD is open to the public and the activities and sessions are free-to-attend and runs until November 19. For more information on the full programme, one can visit https://www.wise-qatar.org/wise-2019/doha-learning-days/
