Contribution by Philipp Reubke - coordinator of IASWECE - at our Waldorf 100 Festival
During our festival at the Berlin Tempodrom we witnessed a very special performance by Philipp Reubke, the coordinator of IASWECE – the International Association for Steiner/Waldorf Early Childhood education. 3.5 minutes which you certainly shouldn´t miss!
"See the World" in the morning
Berlin-Brandenburg pupils of the first eight school years lead us through times and cultures of the world, supported by pupils from Flensburg and Stuttgart, by the drum group of the "Kyotanabe Steiner School" from Kyoto, Japan, as well as the choir and orchestra project of all Berlin Waldorf Schools under the direction of Jeroen Moes (choir) and Yaron Traub, the longstanding principal conductor of the Valencia Orchestra.
"Love the World" in the afternoon
Impulses, flashlights and short contributions from teachers and friends from Europe, Kenya and the USA illuminate from different perspectives what our time really needs: pedagogically, socially and humanly. "Global civil society needs a pedagogy that focuses on the human being as an ever-developing being," says Henning Kullak-Ublick, board of directors and host of the festive day. The challenges this poses for the Waldorf Schools, but also for a future-oriented education policy along the way, will be discussed as well as the "Seven Core Demands of Waldorf Education on Education Policy". In addition, the trailer for the Waldorf 100 film "digital rEvolution" will be presented and Miha Pogacnik will give us the "Chaconne" by Bach on his violin. Janis McDavid makes the start and Christof Wiechert concludes.
"Change the World" in the evening
This section is mainly designed by older students from China, Japan, Australia, Namibia and Europe. A joint eurythmy performance by the high school students from Flensburg, Hamburg and Hitzacker on Beethoven's 7th Symphony is just as much a part of this as the - first - collaboration of various eurythmy schools and many other feasts for the ears and eyes that do not always make it easy to remain seated. Also unique is the Waldorf 100 relay race, which has been leading from Waldorf school to Waldorf school across Germany for more than a year. Students from over 140 Waldorf schools have taken part and the last stage on this day leads to the Berlin Tempodrom. There are also a few short but essential impulse speeches - and a few surprises too!
