Recently, we have been witnessing polarization 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 radicalize 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 the radicalization 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 the diversity of opinions.
We consider Nonviolent communication (NVC) as a 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.


Nonviolent communication is an approach developed by Marshall Rosenberg in the 1960s, which has become internationally used as a tool for de-escalation of tensions and conflicts between groups and individuals and as an agent of social change through empathy and compassion towards others.
The 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 the needs of others. If we are able to recognize the needs and feelings 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 exercises 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.
