Cosmic education

The term "Cosmic education" refers to the way in which María Montessori understood education through educational scientific method. In this sense, Montessori considered fundamental to raise awareness of the interdependence of all beings who inhabit the cosmos. Thus the foundation to start building peaceful human beings could be laid down. Through "Cosmic Education", children learn to develop a sense of intergenerational gratitude to their elders, and assessing the potential they represent for the whole community or society. It’s also the case with other life forms of nature: plants, animals, oceans... This means that children grow a sense of responsibility and stewardship with social and natural environment around them.
