At the present moment of social and economic rupture, this meeting between community-minded groups and individuals seems more urgent than ever. Join us in connecting with established and new initiatives around the world, and thinking together about questions such as the following:

– How are established planned communities dealing with the outbreak? What issues and challenges are they facing and how can we help each other?

– How is this situation affecting initiatives that are just now taking off? What new priorities are emerging?

– “We can see this situation as a hole or as a portal:” What new opportunities are being opened up? How can we ensure a better, different world after this interruption?

– How can we avoid isolation and social distancing from setting in, and having a lasting effect on future on us and our children?

– What other new questions should we be asking?

Κοινότητες της Κύπρου: Είμαστε στο Tree Of Life, Κυριακή 12/4 από 11:00π.μ

Τα τελευταία χρόνια έχουν γίνει πολλές προσπάθειες στην Κύπρο για την δημιουργία συνεργατισμών και συνειδητών κοινοτήτων γύρω από την ιδέα της οικοδιαβίωσης, της αυτοδιάθεσης – αυτοσυντήρησης, της εναλλακτικής – φυσικής εκπαίδευσης, και της αναδόμησης της κοινωνικής σύνδεσης. Καλούμε κοινοτικές ομαδικές και ατομικές πρωτοβουλίες να συνδεθούν, να χαρούν, και να μοιραστούν τα οράματα και τις ιστορίες τους, σε ένα φιλικό, οικογενειακό περιβάλλον με ένα χαλαρό πρόγραμμα ανταλλαγής ιδεών, τραγουδιών, χορών, συζητήσεων και παιχνιδιών.

Εισήγηση προγράμματος:
11:00-12:00 Άφιξη/γνωριμία.
12:00-13:30 Παρουσίαση στόχου και οράματος από ομάδες και άτομα
13:30-14:30 Γεύμα και συζήτηση των προλεχθέντων (φέρτε φαγητό να μοιραστούμε)
14:30 και μετά πηγαδάκια, παιχνίδια, μετάβαση στην παραλία
Παρακαλώ γράψτε τις εισηγήσεις και δηλώστε τη συμμετοχή σας.

How to Nurture Resilience in adults and kids with practical advice through art and music: Parent Evening with Caroline Glas

Hosted by Stavrodromi Waldorf Education

Tuesday March 17 – 6:00pm – 8:30pm

Eimaste, 4 Iroon Square, Aglantzia, 2108 – maps.app.goo.gl/KLRM5Uj1quiGmCv48   

Caroline Glas has worked as a Waldorf kindergarten teacher in Edinburgh for more than 20 years. She loves children, travel and social development. Caroline’s talk is informed by her experiences from India, China and the South Pacific while working for Steiner early childhood education, as well as ’emergency pedagogical’ work for traumatised children, parents and teachers in places of war or natural disaster, eg. Libya, Tunisia and very recently with refugees in Hamburg and Lebanon.

The Parent Evening will take place on Tuesday March 17, at Eimaste, 6:00pm – 8:30pm

All early years parents and teachers are warmly invited, as are all those who may wish to be part of the Waldorf community and see such schools grow and flourish.

Rather than see learning as something that must take place in socially disconnected and pre-designed environments and activities, we wish for ourselves and our children to participate in an authentic and expanding community, made up of cooperation, care, imagination, creativity, and opportunity: for fun exploration, exciting problem-solving, beautiful sociability, and the enjoyable conquering of useful skills, each in our own time.
