Below you can find some of the benefits of participating in this project as a trainer or a facilitator:
Giving and receiving
Your voluntary work will contribute to making NVC more accessible and visible. This way we can change the world bit by bit and benefit from more satisfying relationships.
We see this project as a platform where we can support each other in our mission and in the future we can continue our cooperation by organizing projects on a bigger scale.
Thanks to this project you may present what you do to the wider audience and become more recognized on the European level. It is a great opportunity to promote your own events.
We hope that the idea of this project and seeing offerings of other trainers will stimulate your creativity and invite you to try something innovative.
Reaching new people
Together we can reach more people! We will promote this project on a variety of social platforms and you can do it as well. There are so many people that have never heard about NVC yet!
We want to make it easy for you to offer an online event. So, if you need, we can provide the technical support. Write us an e-mail and we will figure out how to proceed.

About the organizers
Peace and Conflict Researcher, Soulpreneur, Singer-Songwriter
NVC for me is peacework, knowledge and wisdom combined, a language of all senses, consciousness-training. It is a tool for me to stay on my path, be open for the challenges of life and be present in every encounter I experience. I am mother of two boys. Being part of the Empathic Way Europe fulfills many needs like co-creation, contribution, adventure, community, peace.
CNVC Certified Trainer
CNVC Certified Trainer, Coach, eduScrum Trainer, an academic teacher
Certified CNVC Trainer and communication consultant
I work with groups and individuals who want to be able to communicate better and build sustainable connections in their family, with their friends, at their workplace and in the bigger community. I am offering lectures, workshops, mediation and individual training online and in person. I came into contact with NVC in 2005 and in 2009/2010 I participated in my first annual program with Friare Liv (Liv Larsson and Kay Rung). I have participated in a wide range of NVC workshops both in Sweden and abroad. Since 2010, I have been sharing and teaching NVC myself. In 2017, I became a certified NVC trainer by CNVC. My main focus within NVC has been to teach the NVC fundamentals, community building and to organize major events, such as the European and the Swedish NVC festivals. What captivates my interest lately is how we humans develop both as individuals and groups and how this evolutionary drive affects our ability to learn and integrate NVC into our lives.
