Dear Waldorf Steiner friends!
We proudly announce the annual meeting of European Steiner Waldorfparents in Latvia, May 5-7, 2017.
We in Latvia hope very much you will accept our invitation to visit the Waldorf schools in Latvia.
We offer 2 hotels in the surroundings of the Waldorf school where the conference will take place. You can choose between the more democratic option, www.baltvilla.lv and the more luxurious option, www.porthotel.lv.
The transportation to school from both hotels will be provided everyday. Both the hotels are informed and will give a little discount if you mention WALDORF CONFERENCE. Notice, that this will only work if you book by email, not if you book via their website.
Useful tips, such as how to get to the hotels from airport etc., will be send to those of you who have registered at a later date.
Again, you can find the program and the online registration at our website www.enswap.org.
A parallel program for youngsters will be prepared, so your teenagers are also welcome!
Dear friends, we would be very very grateful if you could registerbefore the END OF MARCH, 2017! It will help a lot, allowing us to organize the conference according to the highest standards.
If you have any questions concerning the conference, please, do not hesitate to ask them!
