Art of Non-Violent Relations
Why it matters?
Prevention of violence, both experienced and applied, is one of the most relevant problems in connection with teens and youths all over the world. However, the worldwide level of violence remains high.

That’s why nowadays we should probably talk to teens and youths not only about violence, but also about non-violence.

What is non-violence? It’s our values and how we express them in our choices and actions. Such non-violent choices and actions may empower violence prevention at every level: in relations with ourselves, with others, with the world.

Is non-violence possible for the modern world? Sure, it is.
‘Cause if we speak about our values, choices and actions, then non-violence is within us. It means that everyone may master the art of non-violent relations.
