To advance biodynamics across the world today not only requires the commitment and determination of individuals. The international biodynamic community shares a common, responsibility to ensure that the movement can continue to unfold and develop across the world. Many BD practitioners around the world, particularly new associations and associations in developing regions encounter not only different socio-cultural and climatic challenges along their biodynamic paths. Among the key challenges are issues of how to raise awareness of the benefits of biodynamics among the community? How to engage new farmers and build their capacities? How to develop local markets?
Together the International Federation and the Section for agriculture share the common mission of helping local associations and young biodynamic impulses around the world to address these challenges. To do this, we are organizing a global campaign to build a Biodynamic Resource Hub. The Hub will be a repository for useful resources, to be made available for BD practitioners and associations around the world. We need your help to build the Hub!
This is a call to build and strengthen networks of collaboration and support for the development of our global biodynamic movement. We are calling on our community to contribute with meaningful resources to strengthen the foundations and enhance benefits of biodynamics, and to support capacity building and biodynamic training locally across the world. Some examples of useful materials could be factsheets, booklets, manuals, videos and podcasts, links to databases, etc.
Resources collected will be available to support the development of the world-wide community through an internal platform at the BFDI website or on demand. If you would like to share material for the Biodynamic Resource Hub please contact Maria Paz Bernaschina from BFDI (paz.bernaschina) or Sarah Sommer from the section for agriculture at the Goetheanum ( @demeter.netsarah.sommer). @goetheanum.ch
