Can you really listen when you disagree?
Can you speak up for your values evenwhen there is a challenge?
Are you open to equally embracing your own and others’ perspectives
“You are welcome to be part of this NVC event where we will practice dialogue in education. We strive for all school actors to role model partnership, inclusion and cooperation – the basis for democracy. Sustaining the joy of learning for all of us can be the outcome.
We will explore dialogue as a form of leadership. Leading from your own motivation and supporting others to take ownership of their own learning.”

What people say about LEE Lab
Former trainers and organisers summarized:
“The Leelab is a unique learning space for us all who come together and build the classroom we always dreamed of - for a future of shared power with our children.
We treasure the form of the LEE lab which strongly reflects mutuality and everyone ́ s contribution to create the space. It is very empowering to realize how much people are doing in the world. The actions shared reinforce our trust that we together can empathically influence education. The enthusiasm, creativity, commitment and diversity was present as a spark for fun and meaningful learning.
The principles of NVC learning in action!
“YES!! This is my third year at the LEE Lab and hopefully I will come again!. Meeting other people
sharing the same dreams, the co-creation---being part of a big team---the incredible experience of
creating a field of compassionate presence together which supported me as I learned...”
Cordelia (The Netherlands), former participant
“Yes I would, especially to people who are interested in education, either supporting teachers
or parents. It's a place where you learn a lot from both trainers and participants and for me it was
hope restored that you can dream big and accomplish many things through small steps.”
Anca Zlavog (Romania), former participant
“I liked the energy, and my excitement because of the international character, people from all over the
world living and learning together. This learning for me was a sharing in mutual understanding, not as a
teacher-student relationship. And of course there was FOMO, fear of missing out. So much was going
on, impossible to taste everything.”
Jan Vangenechten, Belgium, former participant
