Round Table Event in May cancelled, but new event on the way
Due to the corona crisis we have had to cancel the Round Table Event of 2 May in London. In these uncertain times it is difficult to estimate when live events will be possible again, but we are glad to announce that we will participate in a series of webinars that will be organised by Montessori St. Nicholas, WeRtheFuture and Montessori Model United Nations. The series will focus on on topics ranging from sustainability, art, biodiversity, environment to the economy. The guiding question will be “What can we learn from the current situation?”
The webinars are meant for (secondary) schools and can be used by teachers in virtual or real classrooms.
Statement of Collaboration between Montessori Europe and the Montessori Group
In the year that we celebrate 150 years of Maria Montessori’s birth, Montessori Europe and the Montessori Group (consisting of Montessori St Nicholas and MCI) are delighted to announce that they will collaborate in organising an international Round Table in 2020. The Round Table will discuss the role that Montessori can have in making societal change – and especially the contribution the community can make to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Montessori national organisations in Europe are invited to participate.
This collaboration will continue with MCI providing sponsorship for the Montessori Europe annual congress in Feb. 2021 in Prague.
Both organisations will also seek other opportunities for collaboration with a view to raising awareness of the importance of Montessori.
