Ensuring the “Good Childhood” in a world of cultural and technological change; Expanding the Nordic-American dialogue on early education 

The 2019 Early Childhood Nordic-American Symposium brings together Scandinavian and American educators to explore issues of common interest and concern. The 2019 Symposium, third in a series, aims to build on and extend the conversations from the first two Symposia and to explore the challenges and opportunities posed in both the U.S. and the Nordic countries by demographic, cultural, and technological change.
