Participants and presenters explored the current state of childhood, including issues affecting education and mental and physical well-being, from international, cross-cultural, and cross-disciplinary perspectives.
What societal changes provide opportunities for or threaten a positive
childhood experience for the world's children? What does childhood look
like around the world? What practices and policies can we implement that will protect our children and help them develop to their full potential?
