No Verbal Violence - 30 January 2018
The School Day of Non-violence was marked today at the "Constantin Cantacuzino" National College in Targoviste through the workshop "No Verbal Violence" organized by the Be You Association. The workshop aimed at preventing intolerance, violence and incitement to hate in and out of school. The workshop "No Verbal Violence" is part of the dissemination events of the Erasmus + project "The Power of Words".
The energizers and games approched the students and have paved the way for interactive discussions and teamwork, focusing on the phenomenon of bullying and hate speech. Students have expressed their opinions and ideas about these two phenomena sharing their own experiences. Together, we identified the causes and consequences generated by these phenomena and we sought solutions to prevent and reduce bullying and hate speech.
The second part of the event stimulated students creativity, they had the task of transforming negative drawings, expressing violence and incitement to hate, into positive drawings. This activity demonstrated the power of vision and the will to act, the students concluded that it depends on individuals the way of looking at things and the choose to change and take attitude.
Also, during the event, students developed skills such as teamwork, presentation, self-presentation, public speaking and creativity.
We appreciate the students' involvement and collaboration, and we hope that this year we will be able to be as present in the community with non-formal activities, activities that young people really need, and which come to complete their education next to school.
