Each year we address our constituents burning questions, usually these boil down to “what do we do to make a difference?”

Dr. Gerwin’s draws on his experience as a former Waldorf graduate and now, teacher educator, to address the signs of positive change made by Waldorf schools, graduates, and parents world wide.

This year’s topic follows our several conferences on sustainability such as Cultivating Stewardship of the Earth, Social Media and Search for Community. This year is the ninth conference sponsored by the Winkler Center with each one attracting a larger audience every year.
