On October 20th, 2020, an online Multiplier Event was held for the Arguments Against Aggression project, organized by the Slovakian non-profit organization for qualification and education QUALED.
The workshop, entitled “Arguments Against Aggression” was mainly dedicated to teachers and students from the Žilina University departments of Mediamatics and Cultural Heritage, Social Pedagogy, Multimedia and Information, and Communication Technologies, with representatives from the media taking part, too. The event organizer, QUALED, was represented by the host Alenka Valjašková. Among other things, the workshop provided not only theoretical knowledge but also examples from practice. Participants had the opportunity to participate in pre-prepared activities, which are part of the project material. By using them, the lecturer wanted to foster a better understanding of the whole issue and grasp the technique of non-violent communication used in arguments against aggression.
Please see the AAA blog for a detailed post on the event!
In Germany, the 1st information event on the results of AAA took place on 20 February 2020 in cooperation with the Burghardt-Gymnasium in Buchen. More than 60 participants (teachers, youth workers, interested parties from public authorities) joined the event where the AAA training material in pre-final versions was presented by Karin Drda-Kühn and Ingrid Zimmermann from AAA project coordinator media k GmbH. Specifically, the catalogue of prejudices and arguments was discussed and participants were very interested to learn about the approach of non-violent speech.
