About us

The Social Initiative Forum (SIF) is a non-profit initiative hosted by the Section for Social Sciences at the Goetheanum. SIF connects initiatives and individuals addressing key social issues of our time manifesting in communities around the world. Our aim is to strengthen social organisations working mainly, but not exclusively, through an Anthroposophical approach, to reduce poverty, marginalisation and to minimise disadvantaged conditions in communities.

SIF is becoming a vibrant community that organises international Forums led by local people in cooperation with the network. Its online platform presents the work carried out by spiritually-minded social initiatives around the world.

SIF organisations and individuals work towards social transformation through initiatives in the fields of education, agriculture, medicine, economics and the arts.
