Sustainability, Peace and Social Justice: Pathways to Social Reform Meet the Needs of Adolescents’ Hope for the Future
Keynote presentation at the Association Montessori Internationale, AMI/USA
Montessori’s vision of the unity of mankind addresses our responsibility for the global realities of 2021. Adolescents are particularly vulnerable and passionate about the state of our planet. This workshop includes clips from an extraordinary video production called Climate Emergency: Feedback Loops, a series of five short films featuring 12 world-renowned climate scientists. Narrated by Richard Gere, these films are available for viewing and subtitled in 20 languages. An interdisciplinary approach will be discussed to engage the mission of adolescents (12-18) putting Greta Thunberg center stage of what adolescents can reach out to do globally or locally.
