During a crisis, we need to rely on skills that help us to better understand the situation, our priorities, and each other. Education Diplomacy, a concept developed by Childhood Education International, can be a helpful approach to use at all times, as it encourages working together to resolve education challenges; it can be a particularly helpful and relevant approach to use during unsettled times.
