Abstract/Notes: L’ecologia dello sviluppo umano è da tempo un aspetto importante della ricerca educativa; a partire dalla teoria educativa di Maria Montessori e dagli studi di Urie Bronfenbrenner l’ecologia è parte integrante di una visione aggiornata delle prassi educative. Le recenti discussioni riguardanti la protezione e la sostenibilità dell’ambiente richiamano anche oggi l’attenzione degli studiosi e degli educatori su questa questione. L’enciclica di papa Francesco sulla crisi ambientale richiama tutti gli uomini, a prescindere dalla loro fede religiosa, a prendere iniziative per la difesa dell’ambiente e per la promozione di migliori condizioni di vita delle persone umane e persino di tutti gli esseri viventi. La questione ecologica richiama l’esigenza di una protezione del principale ambiente educativo e di vita del bambino, che è la famiglia; la recente risoluzione del Consiglio delle Nazioni Unite per i diritti umani sottolinea questo obiettivo e costituisce una base per una profonda riflessione sulle migliori pratiche da realizzare al fine di offrire all’infanzia le cure di cui ha bisogno e garantire la tutela dei suoi diritti. Montessori offre suggerimenti interessanti per la pratica educativa. / La ecología del desarrollo humano ha sido durante mucho tiempo un aspecto importante de la investigación en educación; a partir de la teoría educativa de María Montessori y los estudios de Urie Bronfenbrenner la ecología es una parte integral de una visión actualizada de las prácticas educativas. Los recientes debates sobre la protección y la sostenibilidad del medio ambiente llaman hoy la atención de los estudiosos y educadores sobre este tema. La encíclica de Francisco sobre la crisis ambiental pide a todas las personas, independientemente de su religión, a tomar iniciativas para proteger el medio ambiente y para la promoción de mejores condiciones de vida de las personas y por todos los seres vivientes. La cuestión ecológica recuerda la necesidad de protección del principal ambiente educativo de la vida del niño, que es la familia; La reciente resolución del Consejo de las Naciones Unidas para los Derechos Humanos indica este proposito y nos permite reflexionar profundamente sobre las mejores prácticas que se implementarán para ofrecer a los niños la atención que necesitan y garantizar la protección de sus derechos. Montessori ofrece sugerencias interesantes para la práctica educativa. / The ecology of human development has long been an important aspect of educational research; since Maria Montessori’s educational works and Urie Bronfenbrenner’s studies, ecology became an integral part of an updated vision regarding the educational practices. Today’s discussions about the biological and social environment, its protection and sustainability, recall the attention of scholars and educators on this issue. Pope Francis’s encyclical about the environmental crisis asks all people, regardless of their religious belief, to take initiatives in order to protect the environment and to promote better living conditions for all people and even for all living beings. The ecological question recalls the need for the protection of the main educational environment in the child’s life, which is the family. A recent United Nations Human Rights Council’s resolution points out this purpose and constitutes a basis for a deep reflection upon the best practices to implement in order to offer all children the care they need and to ensure the protection of their rights. Montessori provides interesting suggestions for the educational practice.

Abstract/Notes: Examines eschatology as the heart of Christian faith, suggesting that an appreciation of an eschatological interpretation of the cosmos enables acceptance of nature's transience and a grounding for an ecological ethic. Maintains that recent scientific developments present a promising, rather than pessimistic, picture of the universe. Holds that selfhood arises out of dependency on many layers of cosmic occurrence.

Abstract/Notes: Dr. Mazzetti's almost lyrical description of the role of encounters, both human and natural, suggests the terrible difficulty that would occur if the diversity of the natural environment, which is so essential to Montessori's prepared environment was lost. In principle, Dr. Mazzetti suggests that the child's encounter with the world needs deep exposure to a healthy natural world, spontaneous and purposeful, in order to make a contribution to saving the planet.

Abstract/Notes: Fritjof Capra's two-part lecture presents the fundamentals of systems thinking and sustainability along with the power of an ecologically comprehensive theory to shape education to fit the needs of human development in relation to the environment. Dr. Capra aims for the big picture emphasizing that effective learning is a system embedded in the web of life, which is yet another system. It gives us the ability to see the interconnectedness of the environment, of the community, of the natural world all at once--"a network of phenomena that are fundamentally interconnected." Capra maintains that systems theory, including systems learning, is a new way of seeing the world as living connections in which humans are playing their part in finding a real sense of belonging by working in direct contact with the natural world and all of its facets. [Reprinted from "The NAMTA Journal" 28,1 (2003, Winter): 157-193. This talk was a keynote address at the NAMTA conference titled "Montessori Education for Human Development: The Child in the Natural World," in Chicago, IL, October 31-November 3, 2002.]
