Mercurius holds true to its original vision to support Child Development and Steiner Education in Australia. As well as supplying products which encourage the healthy development of the child, Mercurius gives back a percentage of sales to support community initiatives.
We invite requests for support from customer schools and community projects aligned with our vision and will evaluate each request on its individual merit.
As part of our ongoing support of Waldorf Steiner Education in Australia, Mercurius Australia sponsors conferences and initiatives that support and help develop Steiner Education in Australia.
We have an ongoing partnership as the principal sponsor for the Australian bi-annual SEA Teachers Conference, and support the Steiner Early Childhood Vital Years conferences.
Back in 2012, Mercurius began a relationship with the Sharing Stories Foundation, to provide art materials, including Stockmar Crayons, for a project with the Gija community in the Kimberleys, WA.
The original artworks were used to created printed books, and have been extended to create a series of digital multi-touch books.
In 2022, we are continuing our sponsorship, with art materials to extend the program with the Gija community.
