ABOUT THE PROJECT

We are witnessing polarisation of societies based on constant news and information on conflicts, protests, threats and problems. Young people are growing up into being adults who fear the unknown and radicalise themselves within their own peer groups. We see a need to break this pattern and bring a new approach that fosters compassion
and mutual understanding, as the opposite to radicalisation of youth. For this, a new communication language is needed in order to be able to create authentic connections in a space accepting and open to diversity of opinions.

We consider the Nonviolent communication (NVC) as an unique approach that is very much needed in all levels of our society and communities, especially among people who work with youth. This is why we are creating this training, with the intention to offer theory, tools and practice that are transferable to the youth workers´ everyday work and will contribute to building peaceful communities that are functioning based on trust and mutual understanding.

ABOUT NONVIOLENT COMMUNICATION

Nonviolent communication is an approach developed by Marshall Rosenberg in 1960s, which has become internationally used as a toolfor de-escalation of tensions and conflicts between groups and individuals and as an agent of social change through empathy andcompassion towards others.
Centre of the NVC theory is the need-based approach: Needs are universal, far from opinions and ideologies and thanks to them people can understand and relate to needs of others. If we are able to recognize needs and feeling of others, it becomes possible for us to empathise with them and create connections and understanding, even if our opinions might differ and clash.
This approach is systematized, put into exercices and trained in different contexts and groups, being used as a powerful tool for building understanding and respect among individuals and groups, bringing together different cultures and creating space that is supporting peace.
