Child Honouring is a holistic philosophy involving a children-first approach to healing communities and restoring ecosystems. It views how we regard and treat our young as the key to building a humane and sustainable world; organizing society around the priority needs of its youngest members.
It starts with three givens:
The primacy of early years -- early childhood is the gateway to humane being.
We face planetary degradation that is unprecedented in scope and scale -- a state of emergency that most endangers the very young and that requires a remedy of equal scale.
This crisis calls for a systemic response in detoxifying the environments that make up the ecology of the child.
