We continue to collaborate with AWSNA and WECAN (early childhood) on planning for Waldorf 100, the celebration of 100 years of Waldorf education, and on preparations for a major joint summer 2020 conference in honor of this anniversary. Save the date for June 22-25, 2020, in Chicago! The conference will focus on the theme of innovation as we look towards the next century of Waldorf education. We hope that many Alliance teachers and administrators will attend this conference.
We will be warmly encouraging your school to get involved in Waldorf 100 activities. Many schools have been participating in postcard exchanges with schools across the globe, giving a unique perspective on mapping the world.
