Global Summit on Childhood
10-13 April 2014, Vancouver, BC, Canada
Renaissance Vancouver Harbourside Hotel
The Global Summit on Childhood, a program within the
Decade for Childhood, will provide a platform for interdisciplinary
dialogue among the global community about the experience of childhood.
Participants and presenters will explore the current state of childhood, including issues affecting education and mental and physical well-being, from international, cross-cultural, and cross-disciplinary perspectives.
What societal changes provide opportunities for or threaten a positive
childhood experience for the world's children? What does childhood look
like around the world? What practices and policies can we implement that will protect our children and help them develop to their full potential?
