Judith Cunningham will be a keynote speaker at the Montessori Europe Congress in The Hague from Nov 3-5. The Congress is focused on the theme Children’s Rights. Judith will present a keynote address on Universal Education as a means of securing and sustaining peace. She will also lead a workshop on the Rights of the Child. Dr. Montessori was a contributor to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, upon which much of the Convention on the Rights of the Child is based.
The workshop will focus on both human rights and those specific rights of children, how to implement their discussion in the classroom and the community. It will also provide an interactive forum for discussing the international dilemma of many countries failing their children by not providing quality education and laying the groundwork for an open society.
