Rights from the Start! Early Childhood Care and Education Now!
GCE calls on States attach to promoting and protecting the rights of the child
From April 22-28th, 2012, national coalitions on education from all around the world will join their efforts in the Global Action Week (GAW) whose slogan will be "Rights from the Start! Early Childhood Care and Education Now!" The Global Campaign for Education (GCE) -the international coordinator of GAW- has already lauched its 2012 planning pack (download it here).
According to GCE's, there is an urgent need to advocate for a positive agenda for rights in early childhood, that recognizes children as right bearers and that points towards fulfilled and dignified childhoods and a positive unfolding of children’s present and future. This requires a concerted effort from state actors and beyond, which means that our campaign will have to target many more people than has been previously the case.
