A talk by Joan Almon

Salvation Army Hall, Mary Ann Gardens, Deptford, London SE8 3DP
(Off Deptford High Street)
Today’s world requires people with tolerance, empathy, creativity and common sense. Joan will identify how these and other essential human qualities need to be developed strongly in childhood and how too much technology too soon can interfere with their development.
Joan Almon was born in the United States and studied sociology and psychology at the University of Michigan. She was a Waldorf Early Year Childhood Educator for 30 years. In the 1990s she became very concerned about the decline in children’s health and well-being and worked with physicians and educators to found the Alliance for Childhood in the US in 1999. The Alliance addresses a number of childhood issues including the overuse of digital technologies and the need for restoring play.
