Built on friendship

By Annette Wild, December 2017

Together with a Roma family, the architect Flavia Matei built a house from clay in barely four months in the Romanian village of Rosia. A very special relationship developed. But Flavia Matei also had to fight against a lot of things: the bad weather, deeply entrenched preconceptions, cultural differences and a strong macho culture. [more]

Becoming a person of our time

By Andre Bartoniczek, December 2017

Do young people have to be brought up to be people of their time? Aren’t they that by default and only the adults as usual blithely sleep through the signs of the times in that they try to educate young people in their own image? [more]

Learning to love the “inner child”. A professional task

By Christoph Hueck, November 2017

Every child the world’s stage. The concept of learning in Waldorf education

By Peter Loebell, November 2017

G20 and the life that fits

By Henning Kullak-Ublick, November 2017

Role model and imitation

By Philipp Gelitz, November 2017

A basic educational question is how children learn. School children learn in a different way from small children. The latter cannot be reached with words, admonitions and explanations.

Waldorf education in the world’s cultures

By Katharina Stemann, November 2017

The Waldorf movement is becoming ever more international. Worldwide there are over 1,000 schools and 1,800 kindergartens in more than 70 countries. The most recent pioneers are Myanmar, Greece and Turkey. Hence it is not surprising that for a number of years we have been occupied by the question how this system of education might look, for example, in Russia, Australia or Japan.
