Zero2 Expo presents
Birthing a Better Future
Art & Science Exhibition
“How to improve society in 1001 days – a radical new look at pregnancy and early childhood through art and science.”
Zero2 Expo was established to increase public awareness about the key issues and importance of the first 1001 days of life from conception to age two through the showcasing of art and science. The 1001 Critical Days is the UK’s first cross party children’s manifesto and we are raising awareness of its themes. Our pilot exhibition in the House of Commons in 2016, to bring the Manifesto to life for MPs, attracted 4,000 politicians and staff and was key to inspiring local transformation plans throughout the country.
The positive response to the exhibition encouraged us to develop the initiative further and make plans to take it nationwide. The exhibition shines a spotlight on the importance of the first 1001 days, in an engaging and accessible way that lends itself equally to senior level policy makers and budget holders; local practitioners; and parents themselves.
We believe this is the biggest Public Health message of our time and is crucial that we spread the word in an accessible way using thought provoking art and the latest scientific/expert research so we can truly Birth a Better Future.
To inspire changes in how we treat the first 1001 days of life to help create a world where every child has the best possible start in life.
Increasing general public awareness of the key issues and importance of the 1001 critical days.
