Waldorf 100 Festival in Berlin

Our big Wal­dorf 100th anniver­sary cel­e­bra­tion will take place in Berlin’s Tem­po­drom, a fixed cir­cus tent that offers both the flair of a cir­cus ring as well as exten­sive out­door facil­i­ties, and a roof ter­race cre­ates numer­ous oppor­tu­ni­ties for encounters.

Under the mot­to “See the World”, stu­dents from all con­ti­nents will be show­ing artis­tic exam­ples from Wal­dorf edu­ca­tion in var­i­ous cul­tures: from the Japan­ese drum group of the “Kyotan­abe Stein­er School” (Kyoto) to the tra­di­tion­al Aus­tralian music of the “Lit­tle Yarra Stein­er School”-orchestra (near Mel­bourne), from the tra­di­tion­al African sounds of the Wal­dorf stu­dents from Wind­hoek, Namib­ia, to the choir and orches­tra project of all Berlin Wal­dorf Schools under the direc­tion of Yaron Traub, the long­stand­ing prin­ci­pal con­duc­tor of the Valen­cia Orchestra.

Under the head­ing “Love the World”, the after­noon will explore from dif­fer­ent per­spec­tives what our time real­ly needs ped­a­gog­i­cal­ly. “Over the decades, a glob­al civ­il soci­ety has emerged for which we need a ped­a­gogy that focus­es on the devel­op­ing human being,” coor­di­na­tor Hen­ning Kul­lak-Ublick emp­hazis­es. The result­ing chal­lenges for a future (glob­al) edu­ca­tion pol­i­cy and the role of Wal­dorf Schools on this path are focused in talks and work­shops on explo­sive edu­ca­tion pol­i­cy issues. The sev­en core demands of Wal­dorf Edu­ca­tion on edu­ca­tion­al pol­i­cy are also pre­sent­ed here.

Change the World” is the title of the evening event. This sec­tion is main­ly attend­ed by old­er pupils from dif­fer­ent con­ti­nents. The joint eury­th­my per­for­mance of the upper schools from Flens­burg, Ham­burg and Hitza­ck­er to Beethoven’s 7th Sym­pho­ny shows impres­sive com­mit­ment. Equal­ly unique is the Wal­dorf 100 relay race, which has been lead­ing from Wal­dorf school to Wal­dorf school across Ger­many for a year now. Pupils* from 140 Wal­dorf schools have tak­en part, the last stage on this day leads to the Berlin Tempodrom.
