Charting Impact

Self-reported by organization

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

  1. What is the organization aiming to accomplish?
    ACEI works to provide a forum for a discussion about childhood and education around the world and to distribute information about the optimal education, development, and well-being of children. We seek to increase cross-disciplinary collaboration and sharing for the benefit of children and to provide tools and resources for educators that contribute to sustainable futures for all and promote internationally accepted humanitarian values in delivery of education and the rights of children.
  2. What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?
    The strategies ACEI uses to achieve our goals include opening international dialogues and sharing through conferences and learning events; disseminating information about policies, programs, and practices through publications and online courses; and establishing international community networks.
  3. What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?
    We facilitate international dialogue and sharing through Global Summits on Childhood, Institutes for Global Education Diplomacy, and other in-person events. We disseminate information through academic journals (Journal of Research in Childhood Education, Childhood EducatioN), online publications (Childhood Explorer, Early Years Bulletin), our website, and e-news and other email-based deliveries. We establish international communities based on interests and knowledge and identify individuals around the world and in different sectors to provide information about policy and program development and implementation for sharing
  4. How will they know if they are making progress?
    Growing our international audience and participation will be a measure of our progress toward increasing global sharing and cooperation on efforts to advocate for quality education and children's rights. Participation in, presentation at, and attendance by individuals from a growing number of countries at our conferences, summits, and institutes will indicate that we are successfully reaching a global audience and facilitating sharing about best practices and universal values across borders. We also look to an increased international authorship and readership of our publications as a measure of our success in disseminating information and providing a voice for advocates of quality education and enhanced protection for children. As we connect with a growing network of organizations working in various disciplines that intersect with children's education and well-being, we will be promoting quality education and advocating for child rights in a multi-pronged approach that will have a broader impact.
  5. What have and haven't they accomplished so far?
    We have a Country Liaisons program that provides information about education and childhood-related policies and activities in 37 countries.

    We have an Ambassadors for Childhood program that enlists leading children's experts and advocates in encouraging all organizations to consider children in their decision-making. The current cohort of Ambassadors represents 8 different countries and work in the academic field, filmmaking, and nonprofit organizations.

    We have 40-50% of articles in our publications written by authors from outside the United States, and we also include articles from organizations working to support quality education and protect children's rights and well-being.

    We hold a biennial Global Summit on Childhood, where we have attendees from over seventy nations representing all world regions.

    We are developing an International Code of Ethics for Educators, which will be a universal instrument that reflects internationally accepted humanitarian values, United Nations treaties, and other international agreements. It may be adapted and applied by educators around the world as a tool for critical reflection and professional aspirations.

    We will be working to strengthen representation in more areas of the world and to increase connections with child-oriented disciplines outside the education field.

    We are developing an online course on Education Diplomacy, which will be applicable to those working in education, health, development, diplomatic positions, public service, and the private sector. The course will promote inter-disciplinary knowledge and the cultivation of diplomatic skills and dispositions that will facilitate navigation of difficult contexts and complex issues in order to promote human development.

    We will be launching a World Forum on Philanthropy for Childhood to provide a forum for philanthropists and practitioners to share knowledge, perspectives and new approaches to the financing of education and programs that support child well-being worldwide.
