On October 26th and 27th, we brought together a select cohort of innovative thinkers across sectors who were eager to start building a network and a strategy to create a shift across society in the way we cultivate wellbeing for every child. The goal was to unify leaders working across sectors who, for years, recognized that building a world where children can thrive demands attention to wellbeing - a sense of self, belonging, and purpose for all children.
This wasn't just any old conference! The two day convening was hosted at Namaste Charter School, an Ashoka Changemaker School in Chicago. We collaborated and built community between a group of leaders working to create a strategy that would increase demand for a culture of wellbeing for children. The event celebrated new ideas and connected leaders across education, healthcare, social services, community development, policy, and other sectors that affect children.
