14th-18th July 2018
Questions for co-creating the future
Our highest endeavor must be to develop free human beings who are able of themselves to impart purpose and direction to their lives Rudolf Steiner People around the world are currently being faced by many diverse challenges on the individual, social and global spheres. These encourage us to become more creative, form new friendships and develop towards freer and more loving human beings, asking: how can we reach the potential that each of us carries within ourselves? In an era of mass connectivity, intercultural relationships and social conflicts influenced by social media and virtual reality, how can we define the meaning of connection? How can we overcome our differences to shape a healthy future? What is our task as a generation? What does it mean to be(come) human? Becoming Human invites you to join a discussion and exploration of these questions through lectures, workshops, conversations, artistic activities and performances. Together we hope to find new ways to work toward a commonly envisioned future! The Youth Summer Conference is organised by members of the Youth Section worldwide. It will take place from the 14th until the 18th of July 2018 in the Goetheanum, Dornach (Switzerland).
