Join the Movement!

At this time of polycrisis when conflict, displacement, natural disasters, and inequalities are on the rise, the world we want for young children and their caregivers cannot be achieved with business as usual. It is time to be bold, innovate, and collaborate.

Whether you work at the local, national, or global level, there are things you can do to move the needle toward our shared goals. Whether you are an individual researcher, policymaker, or program implementer, we invite your contributions.
