Schools re-open

Children and adults participating in the construction of shared safety

The current pandemic has showed us more clearly how safety cannot be considered as a condition given to us by others, but as a construction that requires the effort of everyone living in a specific environment.

Re-opening schools and educational services, and the conditions outlined by various countries in their various guidelines, mean teachers have to reflect on ways of re-thinking the active participation of children in building shared educational experience in this new context.

This web conference would like to offer Reggio Emilia’s most recent reflections on the ways children and adults can settle in at the start of a new year, and how we can use our consolidated experience as a starting point for being open to new and unexplored possibilities for welcoming, encounter, and group building for children and adults.


WEB CONFERENCE SERIES: New challenges in education today

With a series of conferences scheduled for the 5, 12 September and 24 October we will present, dig into, and compare notes on the Reggio Emilia Approach with the people and protagonists actively engaged here.

Together with Reggio Children, teachers, pedagogistas, and atelieristas, will tell stories of experience and projects from daily life in Reggio Emilia’s municipal preschools and infant-toddler centres and the Loris Malaguzzi Centre… discussing the challenges, new and old, we all face today.

Web conference Series: New challenges in education today


Reggio Emilia interrogates and explores the new challenges of education

This series of web conferences is dedicated to the Reggio Emilia Approach and wishes to address challenges in education from the starting point of these particular and delicate times.

Education must always be capable of analysing and interpreting the cultural, social and historical contexts it works in, and in which the children live.

These very critical times have raised new questions about the ways we imagine and experience society and its institutions, and the Reggio Emilia Approach would like to offer some reflection on the main issues that health risks and long-term closure of schools and education services represent for children’s rights, parents’ rights, and teachers’ rights.
