The birth of the Consortium brought together a large multidisciplinary global team of 140 partners from multiple sectors (including civil society, the social and mass media, government officials, multi and bilateral agencies, as well as practitioners and academia), agencies and countries, who as a result of the event, are actively uniting to “create a legacy of sustained peace drawing on the transformative power of early child development”.
