100 Years of Waldorf Schools: Two Books by the Friends of Waldorf Education

We take the centenary as an opportunity to publish two books on the worldwide Waldorf School movement. Eines davon wird ein besonderes Schmuckstück: „Insights Worldwide – Einblicke Weltweit“; which offers a unique snapshot of the world's largest independent school movement. We are very pleased about the great cooperation with the Leica Camera AG. For the book, Leica photographers like Dominic Nahr, René Perez, Herbie Yamaguchi, Fulvio Bugani, Sergej Melnitchenko, oder Laxmi Kaul are traveling around the world in order to present through their art the unique characteristics of each country and its connection to Waldorf education. Around 120 colour and black-and-white pictures show current insights into Waldorf schools in 40 countries, accompanied by quotations on Waldorf education – including some of Rudolf Steiner – in German and English.

The book “100 Jahre Erziehung zur Freiheit” (“100 Years of Education Towards Freedom – Waldorf Education in the Countries of the World”) is being published by the German publisher Freies Geistesleben. It will also appear in English, published by Waldorf Publications, USA. Here the doers, those who are actively involved in Waldorf Schools and Kindergartens all over the world, will tell us what Waldorf education means in their country. Teachers from 80 countries share their stories and the unique aspects of Waldorf Schools in their homeland. Some of these reports are illustrated with photos taken in cooperation with Leica Camera AG for the photo volume "Insights Worldwide".

Both books show in their own way the different faces of Waldorf education and are at the same time a tribute to the work of teachers worldwide. They will be published just in time for the great centenary festivities in September 2019 and will make visible, each in its own way, the worldwide network of around 1,800 Waldorf Kindergartens and 1,150 Waldorf Schools in 80 countries.
