The saying, “think globally but act locally” explains the approach needed to create real change in early childhood systems. State systems, funding, and policy changes can provide leadership, direction and rewards for new ways to support families and young children.  But real comprehensive change only happens when communities embrace a new vision for children and begin to reshape local systems.  In this session, you will learn how Kentucky and Vermont provide support and tools to local leaders to help mobilize their communities on behalf of young children. Key topics will include engaging local voices in collaboration and systems planning at the local and state level, data tools to measure impact, integration and alignment with state systems, and advocacy and communications strategies.
