We would like to invite you to a series of online sessions that will be hosted by AMI throughout 2021.

Anyone with an interest in the social mission of Montessori is more than welcome to join the session which will be hosted on Zoom.

In 2020, we looked back on 150 years since the birth of Maria Montessori and reflected on her groundbreaking contribution, creating awareness around the potential of the child and their importance to human society and the fact that children do not find the conditions for life in adult society.

Some of the issues Montessori raised around the rights of the child during her lifetime have been given more prominence, while many challenges remain before every child will have the opportunity to develop to its full potential. The global pandemic has exacerbated inequality, particularly affecting children who were already marginalised.

The ideas of Maria Montessori are of the greatest importance, not only to children, teachers and parents, but to everyone interested in human development and progress. First appearing as a method of child education, her work is seen to be based on the deepest foundations and to point to the improvement of human life, on an individual, community and societal level.

You can listen to the recordings of the previous talks below.

On 31 August 2021, AMI trainer Carla Foster shared with us The Art of Storytelling - how important it is for the elementary child, and how to perfect this art in our teachers.

On 8 March 2021, a day that pays tribute to equality on International Women's Day, Silvia C. Dubovoy and Ama van Dantzig discussed Women's Rights in the lastest AMI Talk session.

On 6 January 2021 AMI's Educateurs sans Frontières (EsF) hosted an online session to reflect on the legacy of Maria Montessori and explore the application of Montessori principles in today's world.
