Across the world people are asking what creates happy, meaningful lives and whether our current political and economic systems are supporting this. The Save Childhood Movement (SCM) unites people worldwide who want something better for their children and grandchildren – and that want to protect the generations yet to come. It highlights the huge importance of early childhood development to later health and wellbeing.
We run National Children's Day UK as an example of how children's days worldwide can be used to celebrate all the great work that is going on in local communities. We are also developing The Children's Voice site in order to show the amazing wisdom of children and young people and to help promote their own ideas about how to create a more caring and sustainable world.
We share the great resources that we come across through our online community and we are supported by the work of the Flourish Project that introduces a new and powerful framework for understanding and mapping human values and wellbeing - that promotes community engagement and whole-systems thinking.
