New Waldorf 100 Film
"Becoming..." Early Childhood Around the World

On the occasion of the hundredth anniversary of Waldorf Education, Waldorf 100 and the International Association for Steiner/Waldorf Early Childhood Education (IASWECE) are pleased to present a film about early childhood today in the mirror of different cultures worldwide.

"Becoming..." is the third in a series of short films directed by award-winning documentary filmmaker Paul Zehrer which provide an insight into Waldorf Education in the most diverse cultural, social, religious and economic conditions around the globe.

"Becoming..." was premiered at the World Early Childhood Conference on "Inner Freedom - Social Responsibility", which took place in April at the Goetheanum in Switzerland. The film is now available on YouTube and the websites of IASWECE and Waldorf 100.
