The advocacy video is produced by ARNEC to promote the cause for early childhood in the Asia-Pacific region through a collective voice and to galvanize partnership in the region to work together to raise the profile of early childhood. 

It emphasizes five key messages which advocate for early start, importance of the home environment, quality early childhood care and development services, equity and inclusion, and multi-sectoral coordination for the holistic development of all young children. 

The video also features interviews with ECD experts from the region – including Divya Lata, Senior Program Manager with Open Society Foundation; Hakeem Abdul, Education Advisor and APPEAL Coordinator with UNESCO Bangkok; Maki Hayashikawa, Education Specialist (Regional Focal Point for gender and ECD) with UNICEF East Asia and Pacific Regional Office; and Soo Boon Ng, Head – ECCD Sector, Ministry of Education Malaysia.
