Nonviolent Communication Applied to Education:

Paths to Building a Culture of Peace


Peace is not the absence of conflict, but the skill set that fosters connection and creativity.


This training is for all persons involved or interested in the education and development of children and youth.


The purpose of this training is to provide skills needed to offer developing children and young people a choice other than submission or rebellion: the choice to build dialogues that enable the needs of all parties to be recognized and met.

Sometimes we give little guidance to young people and end up disappointing them;

At others, we offer a lot of guidance and thus interfere with your learning path, which comes from your internal motivations and strengthens self-responsibility.


In this training, we will walk the path toward balancing guide and guide, and encourage autonomy, self-responsibility, and access to their inner and therefore authentic motivations.


It will be an opportunity to develop your communication skills and become a peacebuilding agent through your presence in educational settings.


Our dream is that students will feel safe and accepted during their developmental years, and will leave school with clear motivation, connected with the natural joy of learning and feeling competent to follow their path of growth and contribution.


Note: The concepts covered in training are equally applicable to education processes for all ages.
