I think we know who at least 35 of these are but what i dont know who we know well is closest to each. Assuming I am able to help gordon browns team with some of their queries i hope this gap gets less and less. For example, when mostofa presents dubai;s first wave of 100 youth awards we could be choosing youth nominated by many of these leaders since the UAE region already hosts the world's most revolutionary education summits

The World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE) recently launched an international research report on 21st century skills at a media roundtable in Beijing, China.
The WISE Research Report, entitled ‘Education for the Future: The Global Experience of Developing 21st Century Skills and Competencies’, describes the wide range of education priorities outlined by countries and international organisations. The report, produced in collaboration with Beijing Normal University (BNU), offers advice for policy makers on how to develop effective networks and education systems to cultivate skills and competencies.
WISE, an initiative of Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development (QF), was represented at the event by Dr Asmaa Al-Fadala, Director of Research, who spoke during the roundtable. Dr Al-Fadala introduced WISE to the Beijing audience, focusing on the WISE Research Series and upcoming engagements and programmes. Dr Al-Fadala also told guests WISE would continue to collaborate with scholars and experts around the world to produce new research on the most crucial topics in global education. 
“I would like to congratulate the BNU team for this timely report which challenges us all to consider diverse global perspectives on the skills our students, in many environments, need, and how we can support them today and in the future,” Dr Al-Fadala commented. Dr Al-Fadala said,“The professional environment is becoming more and more complicated,” and that schools are responsible for helping young people “to better prepare for their future by adopting 21stcentury skills and competencies” and “to cultivate entrepreneurship.”
