“We shall walk together on this path of life, for all things are part of the universe and are connected with each other to form one whole unity.”  Maria Montessori


Together with Montessori Europe, Montessori Model United Nations and WeRTheFuture (Art Action Change – Nadja Romain and Ellen Comberg), Montessori St Nicholas is planning a series of weekly webinars for 10-18 year old students about sustainability, biodiversity, the environment and our role as global citizens.

Weekly 30-45 minute webinars will feature short presentations by specialists, followed by the opportunity for our young participants to ask questions. Specialists include Markus Reymann, director of Tba21 Academy, Venice; Celine Cousteau, a socio-environmental advocate; and Dianna Cohen, founder of Plastic Pollution Coalition.

This project will unite young people around the world to engage and exchange ideas while planting seeds for a better future.

The first session will take place on Thursday 23 April, at 2pm BST. Markus Reymann, director Tba21 Academy, Venice will lead us in a discussion focusing on the relationship between art, science and climate change

On Thursday 30 April at 4pm BST, Celine Cousteau will be hosting a discussion based on her film, ‘Tribe on the Edge’. The film looks at her work in the rain-forests of South America, and will be available for viewing prior to the discussion.
