Towards the 100th Anniversary of Biodynamics: Looking Back to Look Forwards

Agriculture Conference 2023
February 1-4, 2023
Goetheanum, Dornach, Switzerland, and online

A year before the centenary of the biodynamic movement, it is time to reflect on the Koberwitz impulse and on the way it evolved in agricultural practice, research, and society. In this upcoming conference, we take a look at the spiritual sources that express themselves as a cultural impulse throughout the history of agriculture. As individuals and organizations in the biodynamic movement, we can also ask ourselves: What has inspired my path? Do I understand my own history? How do I carry these inspirations into the future? In the evolution of agriculture we can recognize the fundamental question: What do human beings and the earth have to do with each other? What links the evolution of agriculture and the history of becoming human? This retrospection can help us awaken the forces of renewal and enable us to recognize – and embrace – the tasks that lie ahead.

With Helmy Abouleish, René Becker, Christopher Brock, Arzu Duran, Jean-Michel Florin, Ueli Hurter, Sundeep Kamath, Martin von Mackensen, Arizona Muse, Michael Olbrich-Majer, Jasmin Peschke, Tom Saat, Peter Selg, Vandana Shiva, Sherry Wildfeuer.
