Announcing a series of colloquia building upon the October 2020 Natural Science Section conference at the Goetheanum

“The CLIMATE needs our CHANGE”

The April 24th colloquium concerns agriculture in particular.

We are pleased to offer to the English-speaking world presentations from the conference on Climate that was held at the Goetheanum in October 2020. The conference program—together with a preliminary sketch of our intention for these virtual gatherings—has been published in our newsletter, Correspondence (v3.1 Dec 2020, p4-9). The breadth of themes and presenters is more than “scientific.” It should be of interest to a broad audience, encompassing social, economic, psychological, and spiritual themes as well.

On the fourth Saturday monthly (2 pm EST), beginning February through October, online meetings will be themed around pre-recorded presentations from the October conference—originally delivered in German. Some presenters were willing and able to re-record their talk in English (as below). Other talks will be given voice-over interpretation in English. A collaboration of carrying groups in the US and UK together with the Section leadership at the Goetheanum has made this translation work possible.

Prior to each virtual meeting, participants will preview the recordings and ancillary material on the theme. Most presenters will also join us online as guests for the online colloquia. The presentation recordings from the October conference will also be avilable for viewing at a later date for those who register.

We intend to do some earnest reflection and seek what is emerging in our souls, asking “How do we have to change so that knowledge and feasibility come together?”
