Initiative Purpose and Goals: 

The First 2000 Days Network acts as a catalyst for linking, aligning and leveraging efforts in the Early Childhood Development system to enable collective action toward improving ECD outcomes. The Network focuses on how the ECD system works together to improve systems-level change.  The Network’s approach is guided by two main frameworks:

• Collective Impact: "... an innovative and structured approach to making collaboration work across government, business, philanthropy, non-profit organisations and citizens to achieve significant and lasting social change."
• Network Theory:  A framework for understanding how to cultivate a network mindset to effectively build the capacity of networks to support social change.

The First 2000 Days Network exists to support innovation within the ECD sector using these two approaches.

We are happy to share our Strategic Development Plan.  Please contact Blythe at info@2000days.ca for more information.
