The European Alliance for Initiatives of Applied Anthroposophy (ELIANT) champions the availability of choice and cultural diversity in the EU. The services and products of applied anthroposophy – from the Waldorf school movement and biodynamic food through to anthroposophical nursing care, remedial education and medicine, do not have a legally secure foundation in all countries. In order to rectify this the ELIANT Alliance founded in 2006, gathered over a million signatures and in 2011 presented them to the European Commission.
Since January 2012 our alliance has been active as a non governmental organisation (NGO) in Brussels. A regular newsletter informs more than 250,000 subscribers about the activities of ELIANT and important developments in the EU that affect these activities.
Major social changes threaten to destabilise Europe. The European motto «diversity in union, union in diversity» can only be realised if the conditions are created for intercultural understanding between nations and people to succeed. That is what the anthroposophical initiatives wish to support.
Our newsletter keeps you up to date! You are welcome to subscribe and in doing so help to realise the motto of Goethe›s Fairy Tale - «One alone does not help, but rather he who unites with others at the right time».

At the end of 2020 the EU Commission presented its action plan for digital education. On 25th March 2021 the EU Parliament approved it but with significant changes that specifically included age-appropriate and development orientated media education as well as the need for more research.
The scientific discourse on covid-19 has up to now only addressed the human immune system in a one-sided way and without sufficient consideration being given to the needs of children. An understanding what children need and what makes human beings healthy and keeps them healthy, gives rise to new perspectives and bolder ideas.
The earth is our home and the foundation for our existence. Its future and with it that of our children, has never been so endangered as it is today. It needs help now from all of us! By engaging many people and being willing to change some habits, we can achieve a great deal.
We can all sense that the economic system of today is developing in a direction that is growing ever less relevant to the concerns and requirements of society. If we continue along that path we will be unable to meet the climatic, societal and social challenges facing us today. We need a new social structure and a new way of thinking about economy.
Each day we are exposed to illnesses which are recognised and overcome by our immune system without our being aware of it. If we do become ill, we find that the causes are often complex. That is why an integrative approach to medicine is needed which can take account of physical, psychological and spiritual factors in equal measure.
