A look at how and why Waldorf education values child-initiated free play in their kindergartens, from the perspective of Brazil.
The Waldorf 100 World Early Childhood Conference took place from April 15th to 19th 2019 at the Goetheanum in Dornach/Switzerland and was an inspiring experience for 1100 participants from 58 countries.
The first Waldorf school was founded in Stuttgart in 1919. We are making our Centennial an occasion to further develop Waldorf education for contemporary times, and focus more consciously on its global dimensions. With many exciting projects on all continents. Keep your ears and eyes open, and be part of the movement: 100 years are just the beginning! The first film of the planned film series for the 100th anniversary in 2019 is now released.
After the great success of part 1 of our film "Learn to Change the World", the second part deals with encounter, engagement and inclusion: learning that goes beyond merely accumulating information can be understood as an individual way to seek the truth. One focus is the encounter across social, religious and ethnic barriers, as exemplified by the Oakland Community School for Creative Education, located in a social focus point in California, a Jewish-Arabic Kindergarten and the Parzival School Center in Karlsruhe.
"Becoming" is the third film in a series of short films produced on the occasion of the centenary of Waldorf Education under the direction of the award-winning Californian documentary filmmaker Paul Zehrer, and which provide an insight into the inclusive diversity of Waldorf Education under the most diverse cultural, social, religious and economic conditions around the globe.
The main focus of this video is the recent development of the upper classes of the Scuola Novalis. The Libera Scuola Steiner-Waldorf “Novalis” is situated in north-eastern Italy, in the pleasant pre-alpine area of Conegliano (famous for Prosecco wine!), between the Dolomites to the north and Venice and the Adriatic Sea to the south.
Accompany us on a short trip to São Paulo, where ACOMI's work under difficult conditions is made possible with the help of WOW-Day.
