Successful Cooperation with Stakeholders from Various Fields
The life and achievements of Friedrich Fröbel are closely linked to Thuringia, especially the Schwarzatal. Bad Blankenburg, Oberweißbach and Keilhau belong to the “pilgrimage” sites visited by Fröbel fans from all over the world.
These facts were the starting point for the decision to designate Fröbel as a unique symbol for the region Rennsteig-Schwarzatal, with a state-wide significance. To this end, under the leadership of the city of Bad Blankenburg, a network was formed of Fröbel lovers, as well as stakeholders from educational facilities, sites of interest and associations connected with Fröbel. As the numbers of those involved in the Fröbel Network increase, so too does its reputation nationwide and the content of its work has grown beyond the framework of touristic intention.
The aim of the Fröbel Network is to bring the life and achievements of Friedrich Fröbel more into the public eye, removing it from a museum context and bringing it into contemporary practice. To this end, the Fröbel Network created the Fröbel Decade, which aims to provide answers to the question: what is the importance of Fröbel’s philosophy for our life today?
