So here is the news! We woke up this week to the fact that our followers do not really know what we are up to. This regular Tuesday spot will keep you up-to-date on Summerhill Democratics projects. They do not always work out. That’s OK. We just keep on doing.
University of Cordoba: last week Jason gave a talk on Summerhill and made some excellent contacts.
El Dragon, Madrid: Azahara from El Dragon School in Torrelodones was at the talk. We talked about possible collaborations. Nicolas and Azahara are old friends.
La Cantonera: this weekend Jason is going to Gran Canaria to take part in the jornadas of La Cantonera School. It will be good to meet Nayra at last!
The Village: our meeting space in the village is coming on! Building is under way. When the roof is on we will post some pictures.
Emirates: an exciting project near Abu Dhabi we are consulting on is moving ahead with the firm direction of its leader, Solen.
Summerhill Democratics Summer Camps: next year we are launching Summerhill Democratics Summer Camps in Asturias. We have put together the A Team of ex-Summerhillians to provide the muscle and experience. We are planning a meeting of the minds in July.
Facebook: welcome to our new followers on Facebook. We had a peak of interest from Myanmar that is encouraging. We support democratic initiatives worldwide.
Poland: Ania is going to write an article about Democratic Education using some statements and information we have provided. Exciting times in the east of Europe. We have many followers from Poland- over 200. Here are the raw figures:
- Warsaw 64
- Wroclaw 22
- Lodz 14
- Krakow 12
- Gdansk 9
- Poznan 7 and several others.
We have nearly 200 followers in Hungary and 120 in Roumania.
University Francisco de Vitoria, Madrid: following our successful talk in December of 2015 we are planning a weekend short course in democratic education to be offered at the university.
