Equity for Children is celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child by hosting a dynamic panel discussion with top leaders from Oxford University’s Young Lives project, UNICEF, UNDP and the New York City housing and community project Comunilife. During this event the latest findings from the Young Lives’ longitudinal study of childhood poverty will be launched in the US. Please join us or follow the event via live streaming.
Early Childhood Development has become a major focus of Equity for Children and this month we feature two articles highlighting this theme.
An in depth interview with Dr Gro Lie, a professor at the Department of Health Promotion and Development at the University of Bergen. For the last 10 years she has led the multidisciplinary research group ‘Multicultural Venues of Health, Gender and Social Justice: Applying Local Cultural Perspectives on Global Social Challenges’.
We are putting equity on the agenda of policies and programmes. And we are doing this through research and advocacy.
We share a summary analysis of first findings of our Approaches to Equity study that provide you insights into current thinking and practice around equity. A detailed report will follow.
We presented our findings at a panel discussion – an advocacy side event of the 69th General Assembly of the United Nations in New York, discussing how the Post-2015 framework and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) can address inequalities and in particular the needs of the most vulnerable ones.
Please join the conversation and send us your comments and ideas.
