What is my individual responsibility in contributing to the healing of a world in pain?
How can I find a source of strength within myself to actively transform social challenges into opportunities for development?
“Ethical Individualism: Transforming Self and Society” is a three-day event exploring the power of individual responsibility and activity in the resolution of our present social challenges. It will take place at the Goetheanum, the home of the School of Spiritual Science. It is being co-organised by the Social Initiative Forum, a project by the Section for Social Sciences and the Friends of Waldorf Education.
Who is it for
Our gathering is envisioned for people who are re-searching ways of engaging responsibly in some of the most pressing issues of our time such as poverty, marginalization and inequality. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet an interdisciplinary group of experts working toward social transformation out of their own creativity, in order to find the inner strength required to make individual and collective decisions that help heal society and the planet.
The Social Initiative Forum is a collective of organisations who work out of Anthroposophical approaches in the places where some effects of globalization have left individuals and communities at their most vulnerable. The Friends of Waldorf Education provides international volunteering opportunities for young people in Anthroposophical contexts around the world.
About the Programme
Through workshops, open discussions and artistic experiences we will be introduced to Anthroposophical approaches to inner development in service of social transformation.
Language: English with possibility of some workshops in German.
We look forward to seeing you at the Goetheanum in October!
