Learn to change the world

Act locally, affect globally

Steiner/Waldorf schools change the world

The first Waldorf school was founded in Stuttgart in 1919. Today there are over 1,100 Waldorf schools and almost 2,000 Waldorf kindergartens in some 80 countries around the globe. And more all the time. We are making our Centennial an occasion to further develop Waldorf education for contemporary times, and focus more consciously on its global dimensions. With many exciting projects on all continents. Keep your ears and eyes open, and be part of the movement: 100 years are just the beginning!

A short film “Learn to Change the World” shows people from around the world who work on the big pedagogical tasks of our time based on Waldorf/Steiner pedagogy.




After the great success of part 1 of the film “Learn to Change the World”, the second part deals with encounter, engagement and inclusion: learning that goes beyond merely accumulating information can be understood as an individual way to seek the truth. 


Steiner/Waldorf Early Childhood Education (IASWECE) are pleased to present a film about early childhood today in the mirror of different cultures worldwide.

“Becoming…” is the third in a series of short films directed by award-winning documentary filmmaker Paul Zehrer which provide an insight into Waldorf Education in the most diverse cultural, social, religious and economic conditions around the globe.
