Helping Children and Families Thrive In All Circumstances

October 22

Title: Helping Children & Families Thrive in All Circumstances:

Date: Thursday, October 22nd, 2020

Time: 1-2pm, EDT

To be held virtually via Zoom webconference software.

Since the Convention on the Rights of the Child’s adoption, children’s welfare has improved greatly. Child poverty and mortality before age five have halved since then, and school attendance has risen. Countries have directed more attention, resources, and legislation to reducing child vulnerability and respecting the rights of children. Yet challenges remain. Poverty, natural disasters, conflict, family separation, and now a global pandemic affect children’s wellbeing. Times of crisis place stress on families and put children at risk. How can we ensure that children, even those in vulnerable situations, thrive? The NGO Committee on the Family is pleased to host two distinguished experts, Rima Salah, Chair, Early Childhood Peace Consortium and U.N. Assistant Secretary General (retired), and Nuno Crisostomo, Emergency Specialist, UNICEF (retired).
