World  Goetheanum Forum 2019

Inspired Collaboration and Cooperative Partnership

The forum is aimed at executives and entrepreneurs.
Registration documents are available from our office.

27 th—28 th September 2019

Organized by the World Goetheanum Association in collaboration with the Section for Social Sciences 

Dear friends and all those who might be interested

Today, many companies and institutions are turning their backs on pyramidal hierarchical organizational structures. They seek agility in the management of processes, which leaves the individual personality free space and at the same time encourages individual responsibility. But what are the inner requirements for successful cooperation? From which sources do we draw? How do we find cooperation in new, more «horizontally» oriented forms? What skills are needed for a sustainable and innovative cooperation between companies? And finally, the question arises of the ones own appropriate attitude and co-organized involvement in civil society and politics.

Cooperation wants to be rethought today. This social and economic challenge stretches across all sectors, from agriculture and commerce to medicine, education and social therapy.

The second World Goetheanum Forum brings together people who face these issues in practice worldwide, drawing on inner initiative and spiritual experience.

Keynote speeches will give voice to the topic of collaboration that has been around for many years:

Jos de Blok, co-founder of Buurtzorg, an internationally acclaimed model of self-organization of outpatient nursing, which is now successfully operating as an organization 12 years after its establishment, in 24 countries worldwide with over 100,000 nurses.

Aonghus Gordon founded the Ruskin Mill Center for Cultural Development trust in 1982 with eight locations with further social institutions being founded since then.

The managing directors Aline Haldemann, Bettina Holenstein and Susanne Huber of Demeter Switzerland, who are implementing the association model in a variety of ways.

Niklaus Schär and Hanspeter Niggli, who are developing new forms of cooperation in the «CoOpera Workroom» with their entrepreneurial experience.

Dr. Ha Vinh Tho, until March 2018 Director of the Gross National Happiness Center in Bhutan, currently active in a teacher training project for Vietnam, has researched the meditative prerequisites for successful cooperation.

In discussion panels, the forum takes up current questions on the four subject areas:

• The inner dimension of cooperation

• Collaboration in companies

• Associative economics

• Political-social cooperation

In the form of «Round Tables», controversial issues of companies and businesses are put into the focus of small group discussions. For our podium discussions, we invite personalities with whom we as audience will be included in lively discussion; Finally, there will be initiatives and projects that report on their visions and their striving for new forms of cooperation.

In addition to thematic input and content suggestions, the forum will provide the greatest possible scope for encounters and informal exchanges.

We look forward to welcoming you to the World Goetheanum Forum!

Helmy Abouleish, Rembert Biemond, Fabio Brescacin, Michael Brenner, Gerald Häfner, Ueli Hurter, Paul Mackay, Georg Soldner, Armin Steuernagel, Verena Wahl & Justus Wittich
