Large Crowds and 1 to 1 De-escalation and Nonviolence

1h 30 min (short ver.)
This training will provide:
• a deeper understanding of nonviolence
• practical de-escalation skills for maintaining nonviolence with small groups and individuals
• practical de-escalation skills for large crowds.
• a brief introduction to Non Violent Communication
• one-on-one de-escalation with a range of different scenarios
Nonviolence is one of the core principles which is non-negotiable for everyone who wants to take action under the name of XR. De-escalation is a key skill for anyone involved in any action. It helps maintain nonviolent interactions and atmosphere. XR’s nonviolence has both a strategic and ethical dimension. Through this deliberate practice we can model, or ‘prefigure’, the future we hope to create.
