Architects of the Future

Architects of the future - 2012
The Architects of the Future are a worldwide community of young and inspired social entrepreneurs who realize their wish for a different world by bringing successful social businesses to life. The architects are examples for a new generation of entrepreneurs driven by the wish to serve their communities and to work for a better world. In this way they are inspiring rolemodels for all those who are aiming for a meaningful and productive life.

The Architects concentrate their work on social and ecological problems and help finding solutions where economy and politics have none. Waldzell and the Architects of the Future work hand in hand for a conscious economy that is moved and inspired by the wish for a continuous inner and outer progress of humanity, based on social harmony and sustainability.

The heart of the AOF Initiative is the connection of inner and outer work. As a community of entrepreneurs the Architects want to build a bridge between spiritual aspiration and social activism in the field of economy. They embody an attitude that wants to express that changing the world starts with changing one’s own inner being and attitude.


The „Architects of the Future“ is a world-wide community of inspired young social entrepreneurs who seek to disseminate their deepest and most special concerns on the basis of successful ventures. By linking their awareness for integrated thinking to successful entrepreneurship and combining social warmth with social commitment, “Architects of the Future” act as forerunners of a new economy

Following the initiative’s foundation in the context of the Waldzell Meetings in 2005, “Architects of the Future” has grown to become a substantial global transformational force that not only advocates a profound transformation of society, but also acknowledges that change can only start within one’s own inner self.

Bound by close friendships, shared visions of a more just and peaceful world and gifted with enthusiasm, commitment and love, “Architects of the Future” community at present comprises about 90 members world-wide.

The “Architects of the Future” retreats make a substantive attempt to link inner work with outer forms of labour. Meditatively addressing one’s own source of strength – the inner calling – and connecting it to a certain commitment on the outside, is the prerequisite and basis for a truly successful and happy life. For this purpose, the issues of leadership, success, spirituality and balance need to be mutually addressed.

The schedule of the four-day event comprises topical lectures, group work, individual coaching sessions, intense spiritual practice, chanting, dancing and celebrating. Experience has shown that the following points have been referred to as particularly enriching by former “Architects of the Future”:

  • The widening of perspectives towards an integrated vision of the world
  • The opportunity to gain energy for the challenges of the everyday life as a social entrepreneur
  • The reflection and the exchange with like-minded people
  • The connection on a deeper level that facilitates sincere partnerships and friendships
  • The establishment of a strong and meaningful global and intercultural network
