Children Are Citizens: Civic Agency in the Early Years Conference

Come to Washington, DC, to learn from and alongside early childhood researchers from the world-renowned Project Zero; practitioners of Reggio-inspired approaches to teaching and learning in the early years; cultural institution partners; and colleagues from around the country and the world.

At this two-day conference, you will learn about the exciting Children Are Citizens initiative in Washington, DC, and other cities. You will see how the project has come to life in diverse classrooms, experience methods through which the arts, humanities, and sciences have been integrated into the curriculum, and have the opportunity to plan for starting something similar in your own setting.

Project Zero’s Mara Krechevsky and Ben Mardell, who originated this initiative and who have collaborated with educators in Reggio Emilia preschools for nearly two decades, will be keynote speakers over the two days.
