Monika Diop-Wernz has 20 years of experience in self-determined and democratic education. She is co-founder of the Sudbury School Ammersee, has toured Sudbury schools and democratic schools around the world and has many years of practical experience in helping young people to develop freely. Already in 2010 she had the vision to develop trainings and further education for learning guides / employees. Today she works with her task and thus also with her own inner process of change that has lasted for decades. During the entire nine months, she will accompany the participants to delve deeply into the topic, to find and walk their own path and to experience themselves in a new way within a community. It creates a space for experience and development not only to rethink and redesign education, but also for an inner process of change, which in turn is the basis for providing young people with self-determined education.
