Lectures: After an artistic introduction, two lectures will be given by speakers from different countries: Josep Maria Esquirol (University of Barcelona, ES), Thomas Fuchs (University of Heidelberg, DE), Wilfried Sommer ( Lehrerseminar für Waldorfpädagogik in Kassel, DE), Michal Ben Shalom (Harduf, Israel), Kathy MacFarlane (Aukland, NZ), Michael Zech (Teacher Training Seminar for Waldorf Education in Kassel, DE), Ya Chih Chan (TW), Linda Williams (Detroit Waldorf School, US) Tomáš Zdražil (Freie Hochschule Stuttgart, DE), Constanza Kaliks and Philipp Reubke (Pedagogical Section, Dornach, CH)
Discussion groups on the topics of the lectures: In the monolingual or multilingual discussion groups, the idea is to work in three steps: First to follow and formulate the thread of the lecture, to work together on questions that arise, and finally to deepen topics that have met with your interest in exchange.
Free artistic activities: In the time before and after lunch there is the possibility to spontaneously participate in artistic activities such as singing, eurythmy, Bothmer gymnastics, speech, drawing, sculpting, etc.
Forum and Encounter: In the first part of the afternoon there will be several parallel events in which you can spontaneously participate. Short contributions, panel discussions and conversations with the audience will address current topics in pedagogy: pedagogy and health, human-nature-technology-digital media, emergency pedagogy, free play in early childhood and youth pedagogy, interculturality, religion, curriculum, movement and cognitive development, high school, crafts and spiritual-mental development, education, pedagogical approaches to learning difficulties, language care as an incarnational aid, The School of Spiritual Science at the Goetheanum and the Pedagogical Section, among others.
Working Groups: In the second afternoon there will be workshops, which are booked together with the registration for the conference. Here you will have the opportunity to further your education in an area that is particularly relevant to your professional work: Humanities, Digital, Kindergarten, Intercultural, Lower School, Middle School, Upper School, Education, Health, and Rhythm.
Evening events: Bothmer gymnastics by performers from Hungary, a concert with the choir and orchestra of the Waldorf School Wien-Mauer, a performance by the Eurythmy Ensemble of the Goetheanum Stage, and an evening of folk and pop music with students and faculty from Armenia and France.
