70th Anniversary Celebration 2018

In June 2018 World OMEP returned to Prague, the site of its first World Assembly and conference, to celebrate the organization’s 70th anniversary.

The World Assembly was held on June 25 and 26, 2018 and the World Conference took place on June 27 – 29. IT was a remarkable celebration, looking backwards at our history and accomplishments and forward to our future as one of the world’s oldest and largest international early childhood organizations.
