The mission of the World Forum Foundation is to promote an on-going global exchange of
ideas on the delivery of quality services for young children in diverse settings.
This mission is accomplished through convening gatherings of early childhood professionals around the world and by promoting the continuing exchange of ideas among participants.
The mission of the World Forum Foundation is accomplished through two types of gatherings of early childhood professionals…
World Forum on Early Care and Education:
Every two years 600 – 800 early childhood professionals from more than 80 countries
gather to share ideas on a wide range of issues impacting the delivery of
quality services for children and families.
Working Forums: In the alternate years, Working Forums—regional meetings of early childhood professionals focusing on specific issues—take place.
Both types of gatherings serve as “meeting places” where all those interested in promoting the well-being of young children and families can share ideas, strategies, and perspectives.
World Forum Projects: At World Forum gatherings people often come together to launch global projects on specific issues and topics. Current projects focus on men in ece, AIDS and young children, nature education, peace education, teacher education, and immigration and young children.
