What Makes Me? Join researchers, experts, educators, and policymakers for a one-hour virtual policy panel discussion on the Core Capacities for Living and Learning. A new report from UNICEF, the Learning for Wellbeing Foundation, and the Fetzer Institute reveals nine core capacities and underscores the importance of noticing and nourishing these capacities from birth through adulthood. Often overlooked as innate basic skills, these capacities are underutilized in efforts to promote child well-being, education, and development. By protecting and promoting the development of these capacities, children can better understand and interact with the world around them, for life and for learning, and realize their unique potential. Join us for our regional launch of the research – to learn about these core capacities and why and how every child can cultivate these capacities to thrive.
