28th International Montessori Congress

You are invited to Prague, July 27 – 30, 2017

July 27 – 30, 2017

The International Montessori Congress is a large-scale
educational congress. Ever since Maria Montessori
established her organisation Association Montessori 
Internationale in 1929,  congresses have taken place
regularly. Currently, congresses take place every four
years; not only is each congress hosted in a different
country, we also change continents, to enable as many
people as possible to enjoy the inspiration these
congresses bring. The goal of the Congress is to raise 
worldwide awareness and understanding of Montessori
education, as well as to provide a platform for
Montessori professionals to connect with one another.
Since 1929, twenty-seven Congresses have taken
place around the world. Congresses offer an ideal 
opportunity to Congress visitors to expand their
knowledge by participating in ambitious and
productive activities, which include workshops, 
panel discussions, networking/exhibiting events,
and keynote and research presentations. The
Congress inspires and encourages growth,
development and action on personal, local and 
global levels.
In July 2017, we will hold the 28th International
Montessori Congressin Prague - in the heart of
Europe. Prague is one of the most beautiful
destinations in the world, with the history of the
capital city of the Czech Republic going back more
than a thousand years. It has been almost 16 years
since the Congress was last held in Europe, and its
return to our Continent has created much excitement
and anticipation.
The Congress will demonstrate that Montessori is an
educational approach guided by the natural laws of
human development, which enables all human beings
to become agents of positive social change, which in
the long term can lead to a more harmonious and
peaceful world.
The Congress will inspire a universal effort. Through
dialogue, solidarity and collaboration each participant
will come away with practical tools to effectively impact
their respective social communities.
