At the climate conference 2021 we want to ask ourselves: how can we breathe in today’s climate crisis? How can we understand the climate crisis at an ecological, spiritual and also a social level? Can the earth actually still bear my footprint?
Climate change is happening – we can see it in the most varied places. We are increasingly confronted with extreme (weather) conditions. Each person can inwardly balance the existential uncertainty that this causes to a certain extent, and nature and agriculture also have a certain resilience. But is there not an ongoing erosion over the years, both in the inner and outer fabric?
For the joint conference of the Youth Section and Section for Agriculture, we want to use a broader concept of climate to develop a view of the earth as a living being, examine the facts and discuss possible solutions. We want to raise the question of the purpose of the individual in relation to an apparently hopeless situation for mankind. We want to confront the explosive social consequences with the potential of a common will to tackle the urgent tasks together.
In this daring mix of land-based experience and young future energy we wish to reach an enlivening breath which allows us to say: “The earth is waiting for my footprint – I want to walk on the earth and make my contribution for our joint future.”
The conference at the Goetheanum will be run in compliance with our Sars-Cov-2 protection concept, which is based on the cantonal guidelines. All those who are interested but cannot or do not wish to travel to the Goetheanum can participate in our simultaneous digital conference programme. This will offer live streaming from and to the Goetheanum as well as interactive formats for discussing current questions. In this way the exchange of views in the international community will be integrated into the conference as best as possible. Young people who are students can participate in the conference on special terms.
The conference programme will be on our website from November when registration will open.
We are currently planning with up to 800 participants on site. We reserve the right to adjust to the actual situation at the time.
TRUST – International High School Students’ Conference 2021
30 March – 3 April 2021 at the Goetheanum
To all High School Students Worldwide – you are invited!
Trust is an important and versatile foundation in our lives that can be experienced on three levels:
In the personal sphere, trust can be summed up as “self-confidence”. On the interpersonal level, trusting each other, as well as responsibility and belief in loyalty, are related to each other. From a social perspective, also reflected in politics, the personal meets the interpersonal level. Only through a balance between one’s contribution to society and the individual benefit arising from such contribution, can a harmonious-functioning community be created. It is important that we question trust but not to doubt it, in order to enter with confidence a path towards the future.
At the “Trust” conference we will deal with aspects of ourselves, each other, and society. Through this theme, we invite you to work with questions of the future, which concern us all.
