Marilyn Rowe is the proud parent of a radically unschooled 19 year old & two grown step-children. Since taking her son out of school at age 7, she has been working to bring respectful parenting and schooling options to Montreal. Why is it not possible in a free and democratic province, to choose the education we would prefer for our children? Why is authoritarian schooling our only option? Given no options, her family unschooled. She is grateful for what she learned about learning, while still desiring to see the next generation of parents & children have more freedom to learn as they see fit. Marilyn is pouring the lessons of their journey into a book: Saving Our Kids, Saving Ourselves – a work in progress whose main message is that we can no longer raise & educate our children without room for their humanity. Changing this paradigm could change the world.

Élisabeth Dufresne est la Fondatrice de Pléiade Éducation qui vise à encourager la création d’initiatives éducatives s’inscrivant dans une culture permaculturelle humaine, c’est-à-dire des projets qui honorent la diversité des besoins des humains, peu importe leur âge. Pour Élisabeth, l’enfant est un citoyen d’aujourd’hui et non un futur citoyen. Sa formation de philosophie et méditation pour enfants [Fondation SEVE Canada 2018] lui permet d’accompagner les enfants en douceur dans la reprise de leur liberté et de leur dignité. Détentrice d’un certificat en design de permaculture [P3 Permaculture], elle puise dans le génie de la nature pour façonner ses initiatives. Elle œuvre au sein du RÉDAQ depuis 2017 afin de démystifier l’éducation démocratique au Québec. firstname.lastname@example.org
