Dr Darius Singh has been invited to give two presentations at a global forum on early childhood education in Macao, China in April 8 – 11, 2019.  Darius will be joined by over 800 peers from 80 countries to engage in presentations and dialogues on key challenges and opportunities for young children around the world. 

The first presentation will be as a panel member on “Leadership and Managing Organization: Keys to Being an Effective Leader”; the second presentation will be on “Gaia (Earth) Inspired Education Principles – a journey back to the future”.

The objective of the World Forum Foundation is to bring together those caring for young children to ensure that all children of the world have the opportunity to reach their full potential.



“One third of the world’s children are not developing to their full potential.  They are surviving, but not thriving.” –Pia Britto.  Head of ECD at UNICEF speaking at 2011 World Forum in Puerto Rico.


Each year 130 million children are brought into this world. It is unacceptable that the futures of over 40 million of these children will be severely restricted by poverty, pestilence, prejudice, natural disasters, and armed conflict.  The World Forum Foundation is committed to improving the life chances of all children by connecting, informing and inspiring the adults who support their growth and development. 

In its first 20 years, The World Forum Foundation has conducted forums in 34 countries that have connected over 10,000 early childhood practitioners providing services to over 2 million children in 151 countries. The response to these forums has been overwhelming…


“The strength and success of the World Forum lies in the opportunity to connect, build relationships and to hear stories that inspire and motivate and empower us to be a part of a global force for good on behalf of all children across the World.” –David Wright, United Kingdom
