Keynote - Montessori & Our Future

We live in troubled times. Everyone sees that. Yet as we scramble for ‘new’ and ‘creative’ answers to our problems, there is a century-old solution right in front of our eyes: Montessori education. In this talk, we will discuss how Montessori holds the key to a bright future for, young and old alike.
