We promote the need for a new ecology of wellbeing that encompasses the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual needs of both children and adults. And we support communities, parents (and parents-to-be) in better understanding how we can create more compassionate, peaceful and sustainable societies.
We are also behind the development of National Children's Day UK www.nationalchildrensdayuk.com and we are using this an example of how Children's Days worldwide can be used to not only celebrate and support the great work that is already going on in local communities, but to also provide a platform for local engagement, fundraising and support.
