WECAN hosts an annual conference each February in Spring Valley, New York, and sponsors regional conferences throughout North America.

Our 2019 keynote speaker will be Dr. Adam Blanning from Denver, Colorado, and he will explore with us how early childhood experiences relate to the development of later moral capacities in adulthood. This is in relation to a larger theme we are working on that has to do with the social needs of the times, and the World Early Childhood Conference in Dornach in mid-April 2019, which will have the theme “Individual Freedom and Social Responsibility - seeking ways toward a human future”. As always, the conference will include a wide array of workshops, mini-sessions, work-alike sessions, eurythmy, and puppetry.

Conference registration (via WECAN website) opens Friday, December 14th and closes Tuesday January 22nd, or when we sell out!
