WORLD SOCIAL INITIATIVE FORUM
“WSIF is a non-profit initiative hosted by the Section for Social Sciences at the Goetheanum. (add link: http://sozial.
goetheanum.org/en/home/) Since 2000, WSIF has been connecting initiatives and individuals addressing key social issues of our time. Our aim is to strengthen social organisations working through an Anthroposophical approach to reduce poverty, marginalisation and to minimise disadvantaged conditions in communities around world.
In 2015 the project’s core group revitalised the original impulse, forming a new vision to generate a vibrant network by organising worldwide conferences, and an online platform that presents the work carried out by spiritually minded social initiatives around the world.
WSIF currently has a database of over 200 organisations and individuals working towards social transformation through initiatives in the fields of education, agriculture, medicine, and the arts, to name a few.These member projects are grassroots initiatives working in the places and communities where some results of globalisation have had a devastating effect on local populations. Their aim is to create the right conditions for human beings to take up a dignified life; our task is to develop and grow this forum, and to advocate the great work being done by all its members.”
