|Event description:||Over the past several decades, we have witnessed the increasing severity and frequency of crises that children around the world face. Humanitarian response alone will not be able to keep pace. Fortunately, recent advances in neuroscience suggest new opportunities to contribute to resilience and sustainable peace through the investment in positive early development of young children. OMEP has invited Dr. Rima Salah, Chair of Early Childhood Peace Consortium (ECPC), to discuss with our representatives the early childhood pathways to peace. Our newest world project, entitled Play and Resilience, will also be introduced. We welcome all stakeholders to join us.|
