The Montessori Summit is an online event that aims to take the Montessori Method further. It is, therefore, a Summit focused on Education and on Peace.


Guided by professionals in the field of Childhood and/or specifically in the Montessori Method, it is a Summit that has a very clear objective: that all of its participants finish the event being capable of introducing real changes in their own contexts.
Maria Montessori became known for relating Education to Peace in a very profound way. A realization of the need, on the one hand, for the development of a Science of Peace (along with all the other Sciences that Man has developed and deepened in accordance with his desires and growing aspirations) and, on the other hand, the impression of progress in Education (along with the progress that Man has also imprinted in so many other areas of his interests and desires).
Peace is, in fact, the purest and deepest desire that we can aspire for. On it depends the Humanity that we want and need to see reborn.
What is at stake here is the Human Being itself. His return to his origins and essence that are brought to the world by each new Child that inhabits it.Childhood contains all the answers we need for a New Humanity that we desire so much and that unites us all, now, in this Montessori Summit.
It is, for this reason, much more than a Summit about Montessori’s Method in its most practical aspects, such as Materials or the Prepared Environment. It is fundamentally a Summit where the key points that Montessori highlighted as essential to the great dream of her work will be touched upon: Peace. Peace in a positive sense, an experience based on the values of Justice, Love, Truth, Humanity and Freedom, which we all seek for ourselves, for the future of our Children, and the future of Humanity.
It will, therefore, count on the intervention of Peace Professionals , from the new vision of the Child in the lights of Montessori, to the ways of taking the Method to our homes and to our schools. This includes public schools starting to implement the differentials right away, to the ways of inclusion of this new vision in all of our communities, including those who are underprivileged to how to join efforts between different professionals in the schoolling spectrum how each of us is able to go to the depths of our being and being able to reverse what is a culture of Education that no longer serves us, among many other aspects.
This will be an event that will bring this community even closer, united by a desire to implement an ``Education for Peace``, and that will give a strong contribution to reach even further and beyond!
An event that promises inspiration, unity and a lot of hope that one more step will be taken towards a Humanity of Peace, Justice, Love, Respect, Freedom and Truth. A Humanity that must necessarily begin by implementing these values in the hearts of those who are our future: Children.


After a first edition in 2020 that was deeply inspiring and touching for all participants, it is with great joy that we now venture into a second edition!
The core theme this year is what Maria Montessori’s approach can achieve today.
The Montessori approach is capable of empowering a true transformation of the whole society. The scientific vision of human development, by allowing the introduction of a set of practices that can substantially improve human life in its most varied manifestations, finding the human essence in each moment, is something that can, therefore, be applied to the most diverse contexts.
And so the focus of this second edition will be on the scope of this transformation, which ultimately aims at a Social Constructive Reform. The Sessions will focus on the transformation that is possible today with Older Children (6-12 and Adolescents), in both traditional and public schools, on Children with Special Educational Needs such as Dyslexia and Autism and also on Aging and Dementia, in scenarios where Children are deprived or are in more vulnerable environments, with a special focus on Observation, a fundamental pillar of the Montessori approach and of the encounter with what is unique in each Being.
This year's edition will feature speakers who have assumed important roles in this transformation, coming from multiple corners of the world! It is also a Summit that intends to reach more and more people and touch all in a special way. It will be a Summit where all the Sessions will be simultaneously translated into Portuguese or English, depending on the language of each Speaker.
In this way, we can , together, bring change to our most varied contexts, so that we can be part of this path of transformation towards Peace.
