Alumni

A connection for life!

The Alumni Network, of which every former Goetheanum student is a member, aims to connect all alumni and maintain a vital worldwide network.

A worldwide network

How can the study of anthroposophy continue after one's time at the Goetheanum? And in what ways can what has become of anthroposophy be integrated individually into work and everyday life? An alumni event is held annually at the Goetheanum, and we also support initiatives elsewhere in the world where alumni work together on themes and questions.

The first alumni meeting took place in summer 2019 as a study week. Over 60 alumni from all over the world and from the last 20 years of study came together at the Goetheanum to work together on the theme of the "consciousness soul".

The impulse for the Alumni Initiative came from students who wished to organise a study initiative motivated by the alumni themselves. It is divided into three areas: Studying Together, Living Network and Supporting Fund.

Studying together

In the study work together, which takes place annually at the Goetheanum in different formats, we would like to connect with what has already become in us about anthroposophy, we want to deepen and penetrate into themes with an understanding that has already become. This study work is therefore not entirely without prerequisites.

Lively network

For decades students from all over the world have come to the Goetheanum and taken what they have learned back to their home countries. All these people have created a global network: one that consists of the former students of the Goetheanum!

It is in the hands of all alumni to keep this network alive.

The digital network is under construction and all former students can be found alphabetically in the password-protected area of the Alumni page. In this way, we want to fulfil the wish to meet regionally or on a topic-related basis. If you do not want to be part of the network, all you have to do is send a short e-mail to: alumni.studium@goetheanum.ch

Supporting fund

Social action and helping are basic human principles. To support something that still wants to become and that has not yet, fills with joy. That is why we want to give anyone who is able and willing, the opportunity to be supportive.

Therefore, we have set up a scholarship fund from which tuition fee scholarships can be paid out. We would also like to make a financial contribution next year when Haus Schuurman, the students' house at the Goetheanum, is to be renovated. Other special projects of alumni work, such as support for travel costs to the study week, would also be paid from a fund. We would be very grateful for your support.
