From April 30 through May 3, 2018  a group of 13 practitioners from Europe and North America met in Kalamazoo, Michigan (U.S.A.)  Representing a variety of disciplines and fields of interest, they came to  learn together and reflect on the L4WB Foundation’s approach to core capacities for children and to help set strategic directions for the initial phase of the research project undertaken with the UNICEF Office of Research and co-sponsored by the L4WB Foundation and the Fetzer Institute.  Hosted at the Fetzer Institute’s Retreat Center, the convening was deemed a successful launch in validating the research plan and gathering resources and commitments from participants.
