We build powerful movements by making sure everybody is empowered to be involved and nobody feels left out or overlooked.
Conversations in activist groups can often be tough – small disagreements can bubble up into conflicts, and derail what you’re trying to achieve. How do you stop this happening?
In the Youth and Communities for Environmental Justice (YECJ), Young Friends of the Earth Europe activists learned how to use non-violent communication tools to mediate conflicts. Nonviolent communication is based on empathy and on listening and understanding other’s arguments and points of view.
This toolkit explains how to use it in your groups via tools and exercises.
