About us

The first initiative group constituted itself during the Goetheanum World Conference at the Goetheanum/CH in September 2016. Independently from their individual profession, religious backgrounds etc. this group grounds on anthroposophy and strives to collaborate with all other people who carry the question of humanity in their heart.

Initiative group members: Arndt Schürmann (Dortmund / DE), Veit Kattwinkel (Lüdenscheid / DE), Jonas van der Gathen (Leipzig / DE), Ulrich Hölder (Stuttgart / DE), Karin Knausenberger (Unterlengenhardt / DE), Luc Ambagts (Breda / NL), Thomas Brunner (Berlin / DE), Clara Steinkellner (Berlin / DE), Lutz Gerding (Freiburg / DE), Bruno Martin (Bochum / DE), Götz Feeser (Stuttgart / DE), Veronika Thiersch (Gummersbach / DE), Barbara Barwicka-Geck (Lüdenscheid / DE), Falk Zientz (Bochum / DE)

It is be appreciated, if further initiative groups could be constituted in different regions or countries. These regional groups could collaborate with each other and network their initiatives, if applicable.

We would like to extend the initiative group. Who is sparked by this initiative is invited to apply for the extended initiative group under veitkattwinkel@googlemail.com and kindly state: first name, family name, address, e-mail, and optionally: What do I wish to contribute? How do I intend to organize it? Do I carry an initiative which I wish to present?
