Social-Emotional Learning Roundtable

June 1 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

SEL event logoFHI 360’s Academy Hall
1825 Connecticut Ave, NW
Washington, DC 20009

Crisis and conflict threaten children’s social, emotional, and cognitive development. But there are solutions.

Join us for a policy roundtable to develop recommendations on social-emotional learning (SEL) in crisis-affected context for the new United States’ international education strategy. This event will bring together practitioners, researchers, and policymakers to discuss the current evidence, implementation challenges, promising approaches, and innovative SEL interventions. These discussions will inform the U.S. government’s policy priorities and implementation guidance on how to best improve SEL outcomes for children in crisis.

Invitations have been mailed out. For questions, please contact us at usaideccn@edc.org Subject Line: SEL Roundtable
