Do you know that 2 October 2018 is
The International Day of Empathic Action?

The International Day of Empathic Action was established in 2009 to create unity, community and a world-wide understanding of empathy. Let’s celebrate this day together by offering free events connected to Nonviolent Communication (NVC). It can be a lecture organized in a local library, an NVC introductory workshop, online individual training, webinar or offering empathic listening in a cafe.

Every idea to spread empathy and Nonviolent Communication is welcome!

In 2018 we celebrated this day between 22 September 2018 and 7 October 2018.

Next edition: 6-13 October 2019!

Are you a trainer spreading empathic communication?

During the first edition we invited trainers to offer a workshop, lecture or other kind of events that met following criteria:

  • The topic was connected to Nonviolent Communication (NVC).
  • It took place between 22.09.2018 and 7.10.2018.
  • There was no cost for participants other that sharing cost of the working room, if needed.
  • The event was preferably in English, but we invited everyone to organize something in their language as well!

We collected all offers and published them on this website. This way we could create an international network and support each other in reaching more people.

Local events for groups

In case of a group trainings/events that took place in the town of the trainer, we announced it on this website so we could have an overview what was happening all around the Europe, but the trainer was responsible for registration and contacting participants.

Online events

We took care about registrations for individual sessions online and online group trainings  – we did the registration through Eventbrite and sent all practical information to the participants few days before the event. 

Why to offer something for free?

Maybe you wonder if it is worth it – investing your time and resources…
If you want to have impact on what’s happening in the world and contribute to the well-being of other people by sharing your knowledge and experience, then yes!

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.

Creating network

We see this project as a platform where we can support each other in our mission and maybe in the future we can continue our cooperation and organize projects on bigger scale.

Promoting yourself

Thanks to this project you may present what you do to the wider audience and become more recognized on the European level.

Reaching new people

Together we can reach more people! We will promote this project in Poland and Austria, you in your country… There are so many people that have never heard about NVC yet!

Do you want to organise the next edition of this project together with us or support it in another way?
