The Mother Child Education Foundation (AÇEV), Yale University and UNICEF hosted the first Early Childhood Peace Consortium (ECPC) annual conference in Istanbul, Turkey entitled “Pathways to Peace: Early Childhood and Families”. The  conference was attended by 175 participants from founding partner organizations, international agencies, foundations and academia.  Event outcomes were used to inform the discussions for a follow-up meeting facilitated by UNICEF, on 12th June which considered the next steps moving forward on this agenda to build a global movement that values the role of young children and families as agents of change in peace building.
