Reggio Children’s International Network is a formal network constructed in conjunction with reference contacts in the countries with which Reggio Children has had ongoing relations for a number of years. It represents the various points of reference of Reggio Children in many countries worldwide.
The Network is a sort of transnational project of the educating community of Reggio Emilia that maintains the international dialogue and shared responsibility, with the aim to support the identity and work of Reggio Children and of the Loris Malaguzzi International Center.
"An international network is a challenge. This we think is the most impor tant challenge for the new network. To become a network that respects diversity but at the same goes beyond a superficial sharing of experiences to become a mutual learning society with the courage to challenge each other in our interpretations of our different strategies in our different countries. Not to become simply a coordinating network."

“It would be extremely interesting to see a map of the network extended to the whole world, and those who belong to it feel connected to something that is now more symbolic than merely geographical. It is a new cultural geography, made up of people who have decided to share values. A geography that goes beyond the traditional geographical borders and creates a network among people who have common sensibilities and ideals.”
Carla Rinaldi - President Reggio Children
Reggio Children International network meetings are held annually in Reggio Emilia.
