Characteristics of our training course

Our training differs from other courses as follows:

  • strong practical orientation through a minimum of three months praxis with supervision by the course trainer
  • strong networking through a selection of pre-arranged practical placements at peacebuilding organisations and movements in Germany and abroad
  • our understanding of conflict transformation explicitly entails nonviolent action and social movements
  • reflection of one's own role and attitudes
  • our focus on conflict-sensitve project management (e.g. Do no harm)
  • high significance of our partner orientation in peace and movement work.

Practical Placements

The participants in this course are responsible to organise their practical placement themselves.

However, we arranges some placements for the practical part of the training course at KURVE Wustrow and with other organisations, especially within the framework of the Civil Peace Service.

Also a Junior Peace Worker position with KURVE Wustrow is among those practical placements - more information on this job posting is available here around April/May each year.

Please note: The training is advertised and conducted in German language only.
