Our Cosmic Task

Our Cosmic Task featuring Judith Cunningham, M.Ed., executive director for the Montessori Model United Nations Program

Born at the birth of the Italian Republic, Maria Montessori lived through two world wars, stood up for the rights of women, the ‘deficient children,’ and the poor. Her vision to create a new humanity based on peace was crafted and implemented into the Montessori pedagogy. Her legacy is the great work of inspiring children to become global citizens, utilizing their cognitive, emotional, and spiritual potential to create a better world. As a contributor to the UN’s Rights of the Child, Dr. Montessori told the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) that if the world would listen to the children they would hear new, innovative solutions to the world’s problems. Cunningham will discuss our progress as a movement toward Dr. Montessori’s vision and the next steps on the journey toward our Cosmic Task.

The lecture will take place in Kresge Amphitheatre in Knott Hall, located on Loyola’s North Charles Street campus. Please join us for a reception following the lecture in the Hug Lounge, located in the Humanities Center, from 8 – 9 p.m.
