NVP DENMARK | SUMMARY 2017
Teacher training college
In March 2017, Non-Violence Denmark held a 4-hour conflict management workshop with 90 engaged student teachers and student pedagogues at the teacher training college UCC Campus Calsberg in Copenhagen. We know that the practice shock is high among the newly educated teachers specially in regards to deal with conflicts among the students and disagreements and misunderstandings between parents and the school. It's hard to find an identity as a teacher if you are faced with these challenges.
The overall feedback was that it was a very useful workshop with engaged trainers. The student teachers and student pedagogues got new perspectives, useful concepts and concrete exercises that they can use directly in their work with children/pupils in the future.
Sports for Peace, Urban Planen, Copenhagen.
We spent two training days with a very engaged and intelligent group of young sports trainers in the residencial area Urban Planen in Copenhagen. They will teach Sports for Peace program to the kids in the area in conflict management, self-esteemand non-violent strategies.
