Within the context of crises and conflicts, the intersections of the fields of social cohesion and early childhood education can offer provocative entry points into discussions about social transformation and the conditions for peace and stability to emerge and take root. These fields, which are mostly disconnected in theoretical development, institutional arrangements, and research, often come together in practice, but knowledge about what works and how it works is fragmented across sectors and geographies.
This learning series aims to convene a global learning cohort of researchers, practitioners and decision-makers actively working in the space of social cohesion and early childhood to survey and discuss the current state of evidence and practice, as well as the theories of change that underpin work in this space.
This session will look at case studies from programs in El Salvador, Jordan, Myanmar, Nepal, and Uganda to surface current best practices for implementing social cohesion goals in ECD programs. The event will be conducted in English with live Spanish and French interpretation. For easier facilitation, we are requesting that you please be off video and muted for the duration of the event. If you’d like a refresher, you can access a recording of the first session, “Causal Links between ECD and Social Cohesion,” on USAID’s Leading Through Learning Global Platform YouTube channel.
