Early Childhood Matters 2021

Author(s): Bernhard van Leer Foundation

Climate change is especially dangerous for young children. Yet discussions about climate seldom refer to the fate of young children. They should.

This edition of Early Childhood Matters is dedicated to examining the many ways that climate change and early childhood intersect. In 34 articles, we hear from leading policymakers, researchers, educators, urban planners and activists from around the world, about how to both develop ecological resilience and improve well-being in the early years.

We also spotlight a critical fact: many of the measures that improve life for young children and their families also make cities more climate resilient.
