Presenters will be sharing experiences of the Montessori Adolescent Summits: In order to engage adolescents, the Prague congress committee developed a challenge around ecological themes that are integrated into a web of life. Prague participants will join Montessori adolescents to address major global issues. Areas of focus are based on the interdependent elements of water, air, land, plants, animals, humans, and energy.
There will also be reports on our work related to the Montessori Adolescent Programme Inspiration Project (MAPI), funded by the Erasmus + programme of the European Union with AMI being one of six European partners. One of the outputs includes a free platform not only for the Montessori community, but also for any specialists working with young people. More reporting will follow during the Prague Congress in July.
