Centre for Child Honouring: Philosophy, Organization and Now Soft-Cover Book, Inspired by Raffi

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 18, 2010) - Child Honouring – How to Turn This World Around, compiled and edited by Raffi Cavoukian and Sharna Olfam will be released on Oct. 22, 2010.

With a foreword by the Dalai Lama, the anthology was conceived by Raffi who solicited contributions from leading thinkers and child advocacy proponents including: Barbara Kingsolver, Penelope Leach, Lloyd Axworthy, Joel Bakan and Fritjof Capra.

The hard cover edition was published in Canada and the United States in 2006 and received a significant response, prompting the release of this mainstream edition.

Following on the themes introduced in this book, Raffi has established the Centre for Child Honouring in British Columbia to further the philosophy and work.

"This thought-provoking book addresses many of today's societal problems and outlines the author's children-first plan for a more sustainable world." --Parent & Child Magazine

"Anyone who has ever watched a small child enraptured by Raffi knows his extraordinary power. Now he has thrown that power behind a larger plan to save the children and the planet and all of us who love them. We should listen to his ideas the way our children listen to his music." Marianne Williamson, bestselling author of A Return to Love

"A bold vision for a humane and sustainable world, one that honours our moral obligation to our children." Robert F. Kennedy Jr., environmentalist, co-author of The Riverkeepers

"If you agree that societies are measured by how they treat their children; if you worry that ours is falling calamitously short of the mark; if you yearn for new ideas and a clear vision of how to reshape "a world fit for children", by all means read this sobering, salutary and inspirational book." Stephen Lewis, former Canadian Ambassador to the UN
