Event description
It is absolutely true that we can not legislate love but we can legislate the conditions in which love can flourish.

About This Webinar

The webinar will speak to what children who are the most marginalized from their rights, say they need in order to reach their potential. The webinar will explore the barriers to providing young people with the supports they require and the strategies through which CYC practitioners can overcome these barriers.

  4. What systems changes might be created to support love flourishing?
