A magical new path to transcend our limitations.

Germany’s recent society shows many imbalances: Really good news had become rare. The divergence between rich and poor grows, national resources are shrinking and people become more and more unsatisfied and depressive. This is why a group of young people founded the “Ministry for Happiness and Well-Being”. Using a transmedial campaign they want to initiate a public discourse: What makes people really happy? Is it possible to establish a real “Ministry for Happiness” in Germany? What should such a ministry look like?
The Youthsection is one section of the Goetheanum School for Spiritual Science responsible for the questions and issues of youth. It is a place where future possibilities of youth are nurtured and encouraged in the context of what we find before us already today. To contribute to the search of finding our aim and way in the world as youth, the Youthsection organises seminars, conferences, study groups, and research projects. All this is done in an attempt to enable us to live with the questions of our current times, without feeling overwhelmed but rather encouraged to take on responsibility not only for ourselves, but also for those around us and for the world.
The Youthsection is a large international network of anthroposophically oriented youth that is situated at the Goetheanum in Dornach, Switzerland. We are always happy to meet new persons so please find more information on when our events may take place here: www.youthsection.org
