School Mediation project:

"Developing Democratic Schools – Learning and living Peace" 2009-2010

TCMC – in partnership with the German FORUM - Ziviler Friedenst Diensts starts school Mediation project titled “Developing Democratic Schools – Learning and living Peace”. The main objective of the project is to establish culture of Peace and Tolerance in the schools in Skopje by introducing and institutionalizing mediation as a tool for conflict management. The direct target groups of the project are: teachers, school pedagogues and sociologists from the secondary schools in Skopje region who will be trained as mediators and who will further on transfer the knowledge to their students and the parents of the students

Up to now within the frames of this project the implementing partners have successfully closed the series of trainings for the teacher from the secondary schools in Skopje. The series of trainings included: 5 day training on Peacebuilding and Conflict Management, 5 day training on Peer- Mediation, 2 day training on Supervision of the Peer – Mediation, 1 day study trip to Serbia, and 2 days of training on Facilitation skills.

Strongly convinced that this project will reduce violence at the schools, at this stage TCMC and Forum ZFD are trying to lobby at the Ministry of Education and science to incorporate Peer-Mediation at the list of the so called “project activities”. Thereafter the teacher will have the possibility to officially start to “produce” Peer-Mediators. Meanwhile we are trying to keep ongoing the high motivation of the trained teachers by encouraging them to implement as many as possible Mediation trainings at their schools for their colleagues – the teachers and for their students. ...more about the project
