Montessori Europe webinars
Montessori Europe is delighted to present the first three of our series of monthly webinars.
The webinar programme recognises the diversity of the ME membership and we welcome anyone with interested in what Montessori education has to offer to children, families, communities and society today.
7 July: Interdependence and Solidarity
Stella Luis, Ruth Tesfamariam and Hannah Baynham (all UK early childhood practitioners) will reflect on their childhood and the impact it has had on their commitment as early childhood practitioners to give all children ‘a voice’, to promote global citizenship and sow seeds of diversity, inclusion and respect.
This first webinar is free of charge. If you would like to register, follow this link: https://zoom.us/meeting/register/tJYodOisrD0uG9bfBPGbYNCXQK2w-Z3DY6mS
A Zoom link will be emailed to you following registration.
4 August: Revisiting Montessori values and principles in post Covid world
Judith Cunningham and Barbara Isaacs (members of the ME Board) will discuss the key values and principles of Montessori education which are particularly relevant today.
31 August: The roots of Montessori
On the day of Montessori’s birthday Sid Mohandas (PhD researcher at Middlesex University, UK), Jana Morgan Herman (Director of Community Montessori, USA) and Barbara Isaacs will discuss Montessori’s contribution to feminism, her time in India and the vision for Peace Education.
All webinars start at 7 pm CET and will last 90 minutes. The webinars starting August 4 are for free for ME members, 10€ for non-members.
The full programme of webinars will be published shortly.
For all questions and/or suggestions please email Barbara.firstname.lastname@example.org
Congress Prague February 2021
We are still optimistic about our next congress, February 2021 in Prague, but decided to downscale the congress. Organising our usual format of congress is too big a risk for us in these uncertain times. Therefore, the congress will now take place at a school, not at a congress venue. As a consequence we will have room for a smaller attendance, probably somewhere around 160 attendees.
For those of you who cannot come or are hesitant to travel for health concerns we will offer the opportunity to join in by watching parts of the congress online.
Unfortunately we had to decide to cancel the meetings we had planned for October. These meetings were meant for people involved in MERGe and/or in the Secondary Education working groups.
A members only activity will be our AGM, which will be held online in October. Our members have already been notified.
