“As modern human beings we have an opportunity – maybe even a responsibility – to find sustainable ways to exist in and be in relationship with our environment. This is just as true in the social realm as it is in relationship to our physical environment, and we need to invent, discover and utilize socially responsible forms. In fact, creating new effective forms of leadership and management that honor the relationship of the human beings and that also respect the living nature of an organization could possibly provide a model for social health in all organizations and in society in general.” (Rea Taylor Gill, School as a Living Entity)
The philosophy of Waldorf education is rooted in sustainability and this quote captures our striving as an organization at this time. We are working together on a number of meaningful projects with partners who have and continue to inspire us to create new forms of working together that honor our relationships as well as our growing organization, holding fast to our mission, vision and values as a school. We are growing in our understanding of sustainability as a school. This work requires faculty, administration, board and parents to work together in new ways. Please join us this Friday to hear from our speakers on how we can work toward improving our school.
