In our upcoming online WECAN conference, we will continue our work on the 2021 conference theme. Keynote speakers and workshop leaders will help us, individually and collectively, to engage in a process of change and renewal with enthusiasm, commitment and courage for the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. 
 
Keynote speakers Meggan Gill, Keelah Helwig, and Joaquin Muñoz will inspire us through panel discussions and question-and-answer sessions to broaden our perspectives and deepen our considerations as Waldorf early childhood educators. We look forward to experiencing the leadership they have provided to colleagues, schools and training centers who have committed to broadening their scope and deepening their commitment to serving the whole of humanity. 

We are also very grateful to our courageous, insightful and innovative Waldorf early childhood colleagues who will share their action research on the conference theme in a wide array of workshops, many of which will be recorded for later viewing by those who register for the conference. This year’s conference will also include artistic offerings, vendor and sponsor booths, as well as new events and opportunities to meet and engage with one another.
 
Conference registration will open on January 14th at which time more details will be shared.

We hope you will join us!
