Activity in Switzerland

Intense activity in Switzerland for NVPF confirms the need for solutions to prevent and reduce violence in various environments

After the launch of its activities in Switzerland in 2019, NVPF is very pleased of the positive feedbacks received on its educational workshops and programs held recently in the French speaking part of the country. A partnership with one of the most prestigious management schools in the hospitality industry further confirms the need for solutions on issues such as bullying or sexual harassment.

The first quarter of 2020 was marked by an intense activity in Switzerland for The Non-Violence Project Foundation (NVPF) and specifically in the French speaking part. NVP Switzerland had the opportunity to train students about the benefits of non-violence through workshops in both secondary schools and management schools. The Foundation has developed a 27-year expertise in this field supported by a recognized methodology (Social Emotional Learning) and high-class trainers.

Geneva based Institut Florimont hosted a workshop during the Human Rights Week on school bullying involving students of the secondary level. Role plays and discussions between the trainer and more than 50 students were very fruitful.

A program on sexual harassment was also held in EHL (Ecole Hotelière de Lausanne), an international management school based in Lausanne and gathering students of many nationalities. Almost 500 students aged 18-21 were given a training with practical tools to recognize and handle sexual harassment situations.

Blaise Oberson, CEO and Head of NVP Switzerland stated “I am very happy about all the positive feedbacks we received on our activity in the past year confirming that our actions are needed. In a country where domestic violence or bullying are on the rise as well as harassment or stress at work, the Foundation can bring practical solutions coming from a long training expertise. I really look forward to working with many organizations we are in discussion with and strengthen new partnerships as the one done with EHL.”
