WHAT TO EXPECT
The Life Enriching Education Lab (LEE LAB) is uniquely designed to offer both a
structured and open learning environment. The LEE LAB is an opportunity to share, explore and
learn together so that in these 6 days you will have the experience of co-creating a life-enriching
learning community and truly living the values of NVC in an educational setting.
We aim to co-create a safe and supportive learning environment with you, where everybody is
seen as a teacher and learner and where everyone that wants to, would come out with clarity
and action plans for their life-enriching education project.
Concretely and very practically we will work on how to:
- Co-create a safe and supportive learning and working environment including pupils, teachers, parents and administration staff.
- Role model partnership, inclusion and cooperation – cultivate emotional intelligence, respect, and compassion.
- Resolve conflicts and prevent or de-escalate violence.
- Support pupils to know their potential find intrinsic motivation to learn.
- Build communication skills which support standing up for own needs while also taking in the perspective of others and the community as a whole.
- Create the classroom you always dreamed of.
“In EVERY session there was pace to exchange and I could xperience the meaning of ‘power with’ energy instead of ‘power over’. I discovered that co-creation is 'the form' in which 'power with' can flourish.”
“I learned and experienced a new way of sharing knowledge, with curiosity and fun.”
“The LEE LAB contributes to my further ability to embody and implement NVC for myself and at school.”
