At the end of July the AMI held its congress ‘Pathway to Peace: Montessori Education for Social Change’ in Prague. 1800 people from all over the world attended this congress. There was a great number of lectures, workshops and break-out sessions – making the right choices was a serious matter!
Montessori Europe was present in the exposition hall. Board members stood at our information table. Many people joined ME and booked tickets for our congress in The Hague. The project Montessori Express got a lot of attention. Gabriel Enkelaar marked places that will participate in this exchange on a big map of Europe.
For ME the congress offered opportunities to renew existing contacts and enlarge our network. After the congress we noticed an increase in participation on our facebook page, for instance in the big number of views from Montessori classrooms at the start of the schoolyear.
Although there were a lot of European attendants at this congress, the majority came from the US and Asia. We hope to receive many European participants at our own congress in the Hague.
You will find all the information about the congress on the congress pages: the programme schedule, the keynote speakers, the workshops and forums and much more.
