All Trainings and Seminars at a Glance

What do we mean by “training”?

The most common and important method of our work we call training: training nonviolent action, practicing self-confidence and determination, trying out responsibility and courage, acting out situations of fear and aggression.

A training is an experimental field to gain experience in nonviolent action and to try out something unusual and new in a safe environment.

Our motivation

War and violence, social injustice and ecological devastation pose enormous challenges. To meet these we seek to create awareness for nonviolent change and to strengthen people’s capacities for nonviolent action.

We want to do good, but we have to be careful not to cause the opposite.
As KURVE Wustrow, we sensitise for example our international peace workers prior to departure for the Do no Harm approach – within the framework of the practitioners training “Project Management for Peace Work Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation”.

In addition, we offer a range of other trainings on the Do no Harm approach.
