Co-financed and supported by the Erasmus+ program of the European Union
The Maria Montessori Institute recently attended the first international meeting of the Montessori Adolescent Programme Inspiration (MAPI) project which took place in Prague at the premises of Montessori školy Andílek. This project is supported from the EU programme for education, youth and sport: Erasmus+.
The MMI is one of the 6 partnering organisations, along with the Association Montessori Internationale, The Montessori Place Brighton, Montessoriskolan Lära för Livet from Sweden and the Montessori-Initiative Widen from Austria, who will be working on this project together.
There will be 3 outputs which include the creation of an inventory of adolescent programmes within Europe, creating the methodology to start up Montessori Adolescent Educational Programmes and the creation of an internet platform for sharing the results of the methodological work. This free platform will be available not only for the Montessori community but also for any specialists working with young people.
The project will run for 2 years and its output will be presented at the International Montessori Congress 2017 in Prague.
