Camphill Dialogue 2020

Camphill Dialogue 2020

Our dear friends, colleagues and collaborators at Camphills around the world:

As a result of the fire that swept through our Community earlier this year, this ‘Save-the-Date’ email has taken some in getting out – our apologies for that – but the good news is that the Camphill Dialogue 2020 conference is definitely still taking place in Hermanus, South Africa, the dates of which are now confirmed as follows:

Monday, 16 March – Friday, 20 March 2020.

The general theme of this conference is:

“What are the Camphill values you’re currently working with and how is working with them in your region going to ensure Camphill remains sustainable in your region into the future?”

Conference information will start to flow your way more regularly from now on – Dialogue theme specifics, logistical info (accommodation, transport etc) – but suffice for now to ask you to save and plan around these dates.

A few up-front logistical pointers:

  1. Flights:

·         We encourage you to consider your flights as soon as possible. Only just over eight months to go….!

·         Direct flights to Cape Town International Airport have increased markedly in recent times. When booking, perhaps bear this mind.

  1. Accommodation:

·         We have been fortunate enough to source and secure accommodation at the Windsor Hotel in Hermanus, a beautiful venue right on the coastline.

·         We also ask that you book directly with them as soon as possible, as the number of places is limited.

Lastly, we would be grateful if you could let us know by return email if you are considering joining us, as this will greatly help us with numbers for planning purposes.

For those of you who haven’t been to Hermanus yet, we are based in one of the truly beautiful parts of the world, an ideal setting for dialogue!

Looking very much forward to plenty of sharing!


Warm regards
