Center for Anthroposophy actively collaborates with the Research Institute for Waldorf Education (RIWE). The Institute is chiefly responsible for the publication twice a year of the Research Bulletin, edited by Elan Leibner, and the management of the Research Institute’s Online Waldorf Library. The Research Institute also fosters research related to Waldorf education and child development, as well as collaborating with other pedagogical research organizations worldwide.

CfA is affiliated with a number of local, regional and national organizations that focus on shared goals and support CfA’s mission:

The association Friends of Waldorf Education supports initiatives worldwide striving to educate children in ways which will enable them to take active part in shaping the future. Founded in 1971, they want to advance Rudolf Steiner’s educational impulses worldwide and, as well, to support all attempts to ensure freedom in education.

The first Waldorf School opened in September 1919 in Stuttgart. Today there are 1149 Waldorf and Rudolf Steiner schools in 65 countries.
