The Montessori Europe Working Groups bring together members with similar areas of interests, to develop new ideas, concepts, strategies and materials, to improve the overall effectiveness of Montessori Europe and benefit its members.

National Organisations in Montessori Europe – NOME
NOME offers a platform for national organisations that are members of Montessori Europe, to exchange ideas and inspire one another. All national associations who are members of Montessori Europe are invited to join.

ME Secondary Education Working Group
The Secondary Working Group welcomes Montessorians with an interest in secondary education. Alongside a programme aimed at educators at the Annual Congress, the group also offers a platform for adolescents to come together to take action on promoting sustainable action in their communities.

Sustainability Working Group
The aim of the newly established Sustainability Working Group is to raise awareness of the Sustainable Development Goals, working with organisations committed to the SDGs, offering practical ideas to implement the goals in Montessori settings from the toddler and Casa through to the secondary environment, and promoting the call to action generated by the ME Congress 2021.
Please contact Carola Lang-Howard for further details.

Research Working Group
The Research Working Group aims to build bridges between academic researchers and practitioners. By encouraging research at different levels within the ME community, it hopes to produce qualitative and quantitative data documenting Montessori pedagogy in Europe, and will ensure that ME Montessori research is peer reviewed and published.
