Facilitating discussions and shared learning between researchers around the 6 bricks within and across regions.
The GPI aims to create a culture and network of shared learning and inquiry across all partners and researchers: supporting the development of expertise in scientific methods for parenting research, in implementation science, in interpreting and reporting data, in publishing findings and in using research for advocacy and to improve effective parenting programmes.
How will we achieve this?
Online research sharing hubs linking researchers around the globe and serving as an open repository of scientific materials relating to our work. This includes aligning our work with the principles of Open Science to make research outputs easily available to policymakers and practitioners.
Regional Playful Parenting Research Hubs in Southeast Asia and Africa. These hubs will be focal points for coordinating capacity sharing activities across each region, including providing early-career leaders from the Global South opportunities to lead, learn and share across the 6 GPI themes. This will be integral for sustainability, supporting local partners to become leaders in the development of - and research on - programmes in their countries and regions. The Regional Playful Parenting Research Hubs will also act as a platform for building capacity for advocacy amongst local research and implementation partners in the Global South to work with their national governments – advocating for and supporting the delivery of playful parenting programmes at scale, tying into our Institutional Capacity Sharing work.
