Afghanistan – a year after the Taliban take over

Resilience – Inside and Out


How do we live and survive in a world which is changing all the time?

Resilience is the ability to deal with change. We learn which beliefs influence us and which goals are worth pursuing.

It’s about reason, purpose and the meaning of happiness. Together we explore the inside in order to draw conclusions for the outside – and vice versa. In doing so, we follow the hermeneutic laws.

We develop an understanding of what it means to take responsibility for ourselves, our health and the health of the planet. 


Non-violent communication 

Non-violent communication (NVC) can be used in all contexts of interpersonal communication. Be it in a professional environment, with family and friends or in new surroundings. Wherever people communicate with each other, misunderstandings arise due to unclear or judgmental statements. The NVC helps to understand emotions and needs and to communicate them sustainably. Both a sharpened perception of others and self are the core of this language model. The conscious use of NVC promotes empathy and teaches mindfulness. Because the so-called giraffe language sensitizes for a respectful and appreciative interaction with each other.

In the workshop we will use mindfulness exercises and practical examples to understand, discuss and practice the basics of NVC with you, so that in the end we will achieve more clarity about our emotions and needs together. Those wishing to participate in this introduction to NVC should be prepared to share personal experiences with the group. The experience of the workshop leader with the NVC is shaped by the work as a mediator and moderator in the socio-cultural environment.

No Nation Truck

From Calais to Oulx – Fighting for freedom of movement along french & italian borders. 

As No Nation Truck Collective we came together in 2019 to counter the racist policies of deterrence at the external borders of the EU with a response based on solidarity. Our goal is to support people on the move in a direct and unbureaucratic way, to act as flexible as possible on and next to escape routes, and to be able to set different focuses, consisting of medical aid, food distribution, power supply, squat support and the documentation of border violence. The main actor besides us as a collective is our truck, which has been specially built for our work and contains a kitchen, a first aid area and a solar-power supply system that can charge at least 100 mobile devices at once. Thanks to our mobility, we can act flexibly on and next to often very dynamic escape routes and set different priorities. These consist of medical assistance, food distribution, electricity supply, squat support and documentation of border violence. The main actor next to us as a collective is our truck, which has been specially developed for our work, in which a kitchen, a first aid area and a power supply system are installed in order to be able to charge several dozen mobile devices. We see our project as a response to the inhuman treatment of people fleeing the external borders of the European Union.We have been using it in northern France (Calais/Dunkirk) and on the French/Italian border in the Alps (Oulx) since January 2021. The lecture will briefly outline our project and its development and then focus on the situation and the struggles in our two areas of operation. Questions and additions are very welcome.
