I expect there to be a platform, or forum, where the exchange of socially and politically valid topics can be freely discussed by scientists, artists, politicians and ordinary citizens. Where high profile speakers regularly stimulate animated discussion, ensuring differing scientific disciplines and social groups understand and inspire each other. I imagine these "Karlsgespräche" are representative of an open, cosmopolitan University, along with many other similar programs and events at Karlshochschule.

Next KarlsGespräch: With the "Friends" into the World

With the "Friends" into the World - Voluntary Services and Emergency Education of the Friends of Waldorf Education Rudolf Steiner e.V.  This time we have invited our new cooperation partner, the "Freunde der Erziehungskunst Rudolf Steiners e.V." (Friends), to talk about the focal points of their work.
Bernd Ruf, managing director in the Karlsruhe office, will present the development of the volunteer services and the emergency education of the friends and will be available to answer questions in an open discussion round. At the end of the event, everyone is invited to continue exchanging ideas over drinks. The event will take place in the first floor, in the Play Space of the Karlshochschule, is public and free of charge. The lecture will be held in German. Please register with ehilla@karlshochschule.de. We are looking forward to your visit!

To the background:
The Freunde der Erziehungskunst Rudolf Steiners e.V. support more than 830 Waldorf initiatives worldwide with their work. More than 100 employees from the Karlsruhe office manage the two major areas of voluntary services and emergency education. The Friends are one of the largest organisations for international volunteer services in Germany - around 1800 volunteers are sent to Waldorf institutions worldwide or received in Germany every year. The emergency education of the friends is aimed at psycho-traumatised children and young people in war and disaster zones. It serves the psychosocial stabilization of affected persons, who are supported in coming to terms with traumatizing experiences and integrating them into their own biographies.
