2017-2019 - AJUNTAMENT DE BARCELONA - Barcelona Solidària CONFLICT MANAGEMENT. PROMOTING PEACE CULTURE WITHIN THE AULAS
This is a Learning and Service project (ApS) that has been worked on in the first year 2017-2018 at the Villa Olímpica school and in a second year at the Villa Olímpica school and the Marenostrum school with elementary students and with a close collaboration with the entity mediam
This project aims to be a step forward in the management and resolution of conflicts through mediation, nonviolent communication and restorative practices with the aim of promoting the culture of peace in all areas where conflicts arise. The project has a local dimension within the framework of the School and a global dimension, in the context of international referents from where international conflicts are analyzed and we put the focus of attention on people or events that have influenced or transformed history from the culture of peace .

They have been our eyes and have offered us data to analyze how they are generated and how conflicts are managed in the schools, in the neighborhood, the city, to get this data, interviews, surveys, and dialogue and observation circles have been designed and piloted for the boys and with the reflections and voices of the children we are developing a material (graphic / audiovisual) that makes this experience an example reproducible by other schools.
