We would like to give our biggest thanks for your participation and support to our 66th OMEP World Assembly and Conference. We were joined by delegates of over 46 countries, the first time there has been more international delegates than local. Both the Assembly and Conference were a success and the feedback has been satisfying. I believe you will all also join us to give our sincerest gratitude and thanks to the Irish Committee for organizing the event and for doing such a fantastic job in taking care of us. The preparation and management of such a large-scale global event requires meticulous planning and organization. The venue hosting the Assembly was magnificent and the arrangement to meet with the Lord Mayor will be special memories to treasure.
In recognition of the 25th anniversary of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, the 66th OMEP World Assembly calls upon the world community, and especially its leaders, to make early childhood an unambiguous priority in both policy and practice and to vigorously protect and promote the rights of all young children, their parents, their teachers and caregivers, and the institutions that serve them at the local, state, and global levels. You may find our declaration by clicking here. If you would like to support our call and communicate with your national leaders, you may use our template and follow the instructions.
Below you’ll also find selected photos and PowerPoint presentations of the World Assembly and Conference. For more photos, please click here or visit our Facebook page.
Once again thank you for joining us at this year’s World Assembly and Conference. Hope you have a safe journey home, and we look forward to seeing you all again in Washington DC next year.
