Freunde der Erziehungskunst Rudolf Steiners
We are consultants and coaches absolutely passionate about the challenge of human development and organizations. Since 2002, we have been involved in various market segments and organizations of different sizes – inspired by Anthroposophy and Social Ecology – to support the development of the Human Being so that he can be a protagonist of the transformation of his company and society.
Initiative network threefolding
The network, founded in 1989, compiled by individuals, organisations and institutions, is committed to the threefolding of the social organism, associative economics and cultural freedom. Where people take on social tasks responsibly, the social structure must become permeable for such initiative. To this purpose, the network publishes a quarterly printed newsletter ‘The Threefold Social Organism’.
The International Youth Initiative Program
The International Youth Initiative Program (YIP) is a 10 month residential holistic education, based in Järna, Sweden, where youth between 18-28 gather from around the world to live and learn together in community. The program follows a flow that leads the participant from Outer to Inner and from Community & Collaboration to Personal Initiative.
One of the courses is Governance & Activism by Gerald Häfner and social activist Kait Ziegler (US). After 12 years of YIP, there is a vibrant network of young change makers spread around the world.
The Friends of Waldorf Education help you find projects from A-Z or Waldorf schools on the world school list. Furthermore, we are committed to help initiatives that require urgent assistance. Learn about our “Project of the Month” or initiatives currently looking for financial help.
Institute for Social Threefolding Berlin
Since 1998 the Institute for Social Threefolding has endeavoured to make Rudolf Steiner’s Threefolding better known, and to provide advice on attempts at concrete implementation. The institute consists of young and old people of different origin, education and convictions. The website, which is filled with articles and essays, makes it possible to acquire profound background knowledge. It is also possible to study threefolding at the institute.

“A healthy social life is found only when in the mirror of each soul, the whole community finds its reflection, and when in the whole community the virtue of each one is living.”
