Please check out the Natural Science Section special offering of the Goetheanum’s fall climate conference at the section website.

There is a special orientation meeting:
Saturday, Feb. 13th 11 am PT, 2 pm ET, 8 pm CET.

On the fourth Saturday monthly, online colloquia will be themed around pre-recorded presentations from the October conference—originally delivered in German. Prior to each virtual meeting, participants will preview selected presentation recordings and ancillary material on the theme. Then during the colloquium, some presenters may also join us online as guests.

At this preliminary orientation meeting, we aim to get your feedback on some ideas we will field as we evolve our colloquium process framework. We aim for our colloquia to engage participation in more ways than possible for a simple presentation and Q&A format. We especially solicit input from folks who have experienced innovative ways of working virtually online. It is also possible co-workers will step forward who might lead aspects of a given colloquium. We want to elicit earnest reflection and to seek what is emerging in our souls, asking “How do we have to change so that knowledge and feasibility come together?” How do we move from science to conscience to conscientiousness?
