Join a 2-day workshop in Rotterdam, where we will focus on NVC and the role of the teacher

NVC and the role of the teacher - training in RotterdamThe years that children spend in school are precious, so let’s use them well and prepare our children for a world where appreciation of diversity and cross-cultural cooperation and living democratic values is key to a peaceful life on earth.

The role of a teacher contains a unique opportunity to inspire students through the way we lead the class. We can fill that role as a service to the group and inspire students to take on leadership as an opportunity to serve instead of an opportunity to dominate and oppress.

In this two days course we learn how to contribute to inner leadership in your students through your own inner leadership and presence. We offer an opportunity to further develop your skills in communication from a partnership paradigm.

The purpose of this workshop

To give teachers the skills needed in order to model and contribute to next generation being better prepared for a life in partnership instead of domination, a life in cooperation instead of competition, a life in peace instead of war.

One key skill in this work is integrating solid nonviolent communication skills that enables us to build bridges instead of trenches.

The content of this workshop

During the three days we will work with the following topics:

  • Get clearer on our own vision and dream for our work with students, so that we can develop practical steps we can take towards our dream.
  • Practicing NVC in a balanced dialog, where the focus is on leading and to be led while maintaining grounding in needs.
  • Get clarity about our own NVC-support system, so that we can meet our students with enough inner resources to welcome their inner leadership.
  • Creating a plan for do-able next steps in implementing NVC values in our schools.
  • Supporting and modeling a shift from polarization to appreciating our polarity. This requires us to be grounded in our own values while extending openness and curiosity toward others.
  • Peace is not the absence of conflict, but the skills to go closer and get creative. We will introduce skills to handle differences without creating enemy images and polarization.
  • Exploring possibilities in decision making in which all needs matter.
  • Exploring how to make peace with the gap between our daily reality with its shortcomings and our long-term goals of a world that works for all.

Participants will have the opportunity to work from own examples and learn how to contribute to development based on dialogue and cooperation.

The content and form of the training are designed aligned with the vision of NVC. By modeling this vision in practice we hope to offer practical inspiration of ways to integrate this vision in your own practice.

Our dream is that our students:

  • will leave school well equipped for participation in a democratic society.
  • will feel safe, accepted as they are, and have the skills and capacity to welcome others as they are.
  • will feel free to contribute.

Vision for NVC in Education: to support youth in developing the understanding and skills necessary to be wise members of a global community and co-creators of a peaceful, just and sustainable world.
