What awaits you?

We are preparing a big meeting for 2,000 people of all generations from all over the world. Among them 500 young people. There will be over 130 individual events, from lectures to working and discussion groups, workshops, exhibitions, cultural programmes, discussions and a night café. The consecration of man will be held daily at 8 altars in many languages, as well as evening devotions with sermons. There will be a special programme for children on the conference grounds. There will also be generous breaks for refreshments, but also for meetings and spontaneous contributions.

A special feature of the conference will be the ordination of priests, which will take place on several mornings, depending on the number of people to be ordained. There will be separate “rooms” for each of the seven sacraments, where exhibitions and installations, but also opportunities for personal activity, will allow people to marvel at, research and work on the essentials of these sacraments. Some of the lectures and workshops will also be thematically oriented towards the sacraments.

All participants will be able to attend four events at the same time: the opening and closing of the conference, and the first and middle evenings. In order to create space for this (and for many other things), a large tent will be erected. All other events will take place in the halls and other large and small rooms of the Waldorf schools in Dortmund. There will also be accommodation for the young people.


An overview of the conference programme can be found here. Further details will be posted online from the beginning of 2022.
