We did it!
In June we presented this petition to Amina Mohammed, Ban Ki-Moon’s Special Advisor on Post-2015 Development Planning. Ms Mohammed applauded our efforts and signalled her strong support for investment in early childhood.
To read more about the meeting and the official side event hosted on the same day by the Permanent Missions to the UN of Colombia, Ecuador and Italy, please visit the petition page and read my blog for Nursery World.
At the final count we surpassed our goal and reached over 12,000 signatures from 170 countries.
With your help we have taken an invaluable step on the journey to making a real difference in the lives of millions of children around the world.
