The 2016 Global Summit on Childhood will be held in San José, Costa Rica, from31 March – 02 April 2016. Participants at the summit will have the opportunity to explore the status and outlook of childhood from diverse perspectives and disciplines such as childhood studies, education, sociology, anthropology, public health, nutrition, architecture and design, neuroscience, and social work. The theme of the summit, “Creating a Better World for Children and Youth through Sustainability, Social Innovation, and Synergy,” is particularly timely, as 2016 marks the official implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals that will be adopted by the United Nations this September. These goals intend to guide a path toward inclusive and shared prosperity in a peaceful and resilient world. Since children and youth will be the torchbearers of this new world vision, we must embrace a shared vision of a better world for our children.
