The place of the individual in society shapes our social relationships, while the laws of a society determine individual opportunities. In a fair and just society, the individual human being is recognized to have innate rights, is equal to all others in front of the law and is granted equal opportunities for participation.
Humanity creates the world from ideas. All learning, researching, inventing and artistic activities are ideally free and not influenced by material benefits. It is only through holistic thinking and acting that a materialistic society can be transformed into a cultural society guided by meaningful values.
All major religions share the idea that man is appointed as a steward on earth who has to sustain and develop it. Based on the Biodynamic approach of cultivation, we constantly monitor our impact on soils, plants, animals, energy, air and water.
