Training in biodynamic agriculture

Biodynamic Trainer & Teacher Conference

Unfolding potential - building capacity for a common development in biodynamics

7th - 9th November 2019 in Dornach, Switzerland

Last week, we were privileged to welcome people from all over the world at the biodynamic trainer & teacher conference in Dornach. Around 80 participants from 27 countries gathered at the Goetheanum to talk about the concerns and the future of biodynamic education. Open-minded several smaller and bigger education initiatives were presented. Open-minded, the people listened.

The programme left enough space for an intensive exchange of experiences and networking, which was one of the main concerns of the participants. Also, the five working groups were able to work in greater depth on current issues and develop joint visions or concrete actions for the future. By this it seemed, the methodology or the way was also the goal.

 We wish the participants, on the one hand, inspiration and continuous learning, on the other hand, the gift to create places and atmospheres - for themselves and the students - so that the individual potentials can unfold. Thank you very much for your participation! In between, we will prepare the outputs of the conference for you!
