To create a legacy of sustained peace by drawing on the transformative power of early childhood development by building a global movement that values the role of young children and families as agents of change in peace building
The Early Childhood Peace Consortium (ECPC) brings together global leaders in effective practice, new and emerging knowledge, finance, media, philanthropy and international policy to create a legacy of sustained peace, drawing on the transformative force of early childhood development (ECD). A multidisciplinary Yale University team has joined forces with these leaders to form the ECPC, a loose affiliation of global partners from multiple sectors, institutions and organizations engaged in peace building in early childhood development.
We are proud to announce that Rima Salah, PhD, assistant clinical professor at the Yale Child Study Center, has been elected to Chair the ECPC that is in the process of establishing its governance structure. These details and more, including membership information will be announced soon! Join our eNewsletter to stay informed of the ongoing establishment of this global consortium and its pioneering efforts.
