On the occasion of the 2014 UN High-level Forum on The Culture of Peace on 9th September, Yale University along with members of the Early Childhood Peace Consortium (a loose affiliation of global partners from multiple sectors, institutions and organizations engaged in peace building in early childhood development), UNICEF and the Global Movement for the Culture of Peace organized a luncheon with distinguished guests to discuss the transformative power of children and families as a pathway to peace. 

If we can make a difference early in family life, we can break cycles of maltreatment, and increase the likelihood of peace.
