World Premiere 'The Beginning of Life'

Early childhood development is included for the first time in the transformative 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The Sustainable Development Goals recognize the importance of setting the foundation in a child's early years for the long-term success of individuals, families, communities, countries, sustainable development and a peaceful world.

A new target of this ambitious, integrated, and interlinked framework specifically aims at increasing the percentage of children under 5 years of age who are developmentally on track in health, learning, and psychosocial wellbeing.

In order to raise awareness of the importance of early childhood development, UNICEF and the Permanent Mission of Brazil to the United Nations invite you to the United Nations to screen the New York premiere of the inspirational Brazilian documentary The Beginning of Life, followed by a conversation with director Estela Renner and UNICEF chief of early childhood development Pia Rebello Britto, moderated by journalist and author Sarah Carr.

RSVP before noon Monday 5/23 to reserve your free seat!
