EduCATe - Non violent conflict management for teachear
EDUCATE is a 3-year project funded by the European Commission. Its objective is to promote a culture of peace and nonviolence through teacher training. Six partners from all over Europe got together : the University of Gotheborg in Sweden, the Autonomous University of Barcelona in Spain, the Evens Foundation in Belgium, the Center for Peace, Nonviolence and Human Rights of Osijek in Croatia, the Psychopedagogical Center for Peace in Italy and the Coordination for education to peace and nonviolence in France. They aim to create a teacher’s training program in nonviolent conflict resolution, and establish a European network of actors in nonviolent conflict management.
After meeting in Warsaw, Poland, during a learning lab on the promotion of conflict management in education organised by the Evens Foundation, six European partner organisations formed a transnational team with the intention to develop the intensity of their collaboration by combining each and everyone’s excellence in constructive and nonviolent conflict management. This led to the EduCATe project for European nonviolent Conflict management for educators : Advocacy and Training. In July 2015, the Erasmus+ Agency approved the project to receive funds from the European Commission.
