OMEP has, for many years, worked on various topics related to sustainability and is today one of the non-government organizations (NGOs) working for UNESCO within the Global Action Program. This involves scaling-up work to involve more individuals in supporting education for sustainable development. In this issue, we have eight articles of which two are written versions of the keynote addresses from the 2016 OMEP conference presented by Professor Sharon Lynn Kagan from the USA and Professor Arjen Wals from The Netherlands. Both of these speakers are very well known in their respective research areas; Kagan in early childhood education development and policy, and Wals on sustainability questions. The article, Transforming Early Childhood Systems for Future Generations: Obligations and Opportunities, (Kagan and Roth) is at the center of the focus topic & Ingrid Pramling Samuelsson http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Journal of Early Childhood Springer Journals
