The International Institute of Knowledge Management welcomes you to the World Conference on Child and Youth 2019 which will be held from 04th– 05th July in Colombo, Sri Lanka. The benefits to society of investing in children and youth are wide-ranging and long term. Investing in children and youth today is investing in the future stability, quality of life, and economic self-sufficiency of the society. CCY 2019 conference will bring together researchers, educators, academicians, and child and youth care practitioners from around the world to find out solutions for the challenges of children and youth.


Well-being and Life Chances of Children and Youth in an Interconnected World: A Life Course Approach

The reality is that children and youth develop and flourish under widely varying social, cultural and material circumstances both within and across societies. This reality has become increasingly more complex in recent decades due to unprecedented changes that are occurring on a global scale. Increasingly people and families have shown greater mobility, moving across internal divisions (e.g., internal migration) and national borders either voluntarily or involuntarily.
