It was early in the Coronavirus “lockdown” period (sometime after 12 March when the announcement came that the schools were closing) that I found Charles Eisenstein’s newest article: “The Coronation.” Reading it brought me, as is so often with his writings, a sense of seeing with more clarity as well as with more complexity - all at once. In a word, there was something of an epiphany embedded within…. Since our Erasmus Plus team (formed and then newly formed having lost the possibility of our planned mobility Denmark due to covid-19) was meeting daily during the days we would have been in Denmark and then weekly for months to come, there was a strong sense of connection with this team that began to feel a lot like community, so, as a small gesture, without much reflection or expectation, I sent the link out to everyone on the team. What a wonderful surprise for me to hear that there was resonance for at least 3 other members of our team: Oana Răgălie, Maria Stoica, Petronela Apetri and myself, who would later become a translation team for this very article! This is the story of our experience translating the essay "The Coronation" by Charles Eisenstein, as a way of building connection and coherence into our small community. The story is told from the perspective of Robyn Marie Bors Veraart with the contribution of the other 3 members of the translation team.

This article seeks to give an overview of the Erasmus project being held by the Asociația pentru Comunicare NonViolentă October 2019 - October 2020: “Building Bridges of Dialogue for Cohesive Communities.” From its inception in 2018, Birmingham, UK, at a NonViolent Communication (NVC) International Intensive Training to its evolution through a challenging training in Denmark (October 2019), a powerful mobility experience in Wales (January 2020), and a community-building experience during the time of Covid-19 during which our Erasmus Team went through its own process of creating cohesion through developing our own forms of restorative and regenerative practices. These practices are already being shared throughout the entire Romanian NVC community and are scheduled to culminate in a series of online events to be held and offered, mostly in the Romanian language, in October 2020.

23rd of March 2020 – on this day several members of the Romanian Erasmus+ project’s team (including me) were supposed to be in Denmark, together with other teams from Europe (Austria, Germany, UK, Poland). Two months later I am starting to write this article, with the intention to keep the memory of a rich group experience and of a unique time spent in homes in isolation, between that day of March and this day of May. The title of this article that came spontaneously was `A bit of Wales, Brazil and Denmark in Romania during the pandemic spring (March-May 2020)`. This title captures what we tried to put together in our minds, souls and actions – the seeds kept from Wales, the essence of Dominic Barter’s work in Brazil and the missing part that was not possible anymore from Denmark. All of these planted in the potential soil of our intentions and encounters, of our dreams and work. Eventually, I kept the second title that seemed more aligned to the ending of this article, while the first one fits better with the beginning of my writing process…

An International Intensive Training, or IIT, is a special kind of 'immersive experience' developed by Marshall Rosenberg, uniquely offered through the Center for Nonviolent Communication as part of his legacy. It is a 9-day, residential workshop in Nonviolent Communication, typically including 40 to 70 participants with 3 to 5 CNVC Certified Trainers. The IITs are organized in collaboration with a local organizer/host group or individual who organizes the residential venue and meals for the period. The costs vary with each IIT, as they each depend on the costs of available appropriate venues in the location of the event. IITs have been held all over the world; Sri Lanka, Canada, Sweden, France, Switzerland, Colombia, Brazil, the United States of America, Hungary, and Argentina, are only some of the countries that have hosted IITs. The participants and trainers live, eat, play, and learn together in community during the training, providing real-life opportunities to live Nonviolent Communication over an extended period of time. Participants develop Nonviolent Communication skills and consciousness with the guidance and support of the Certified Trainer team.` (www.cnvc.org)

Atelier Digitali per la Scuola Secondaria. Conferenza conclusiva del progetto europeo App Your School.

In occasione del convegno "Atelier digitali per la scuola secondaria", verrano presentate le sperimentazioni create nell’ambito del progetto europeo App Your School! Il progetto europeo App your school ha proposto una nuova modalità di progettazione del digitale partendo dal modo di fare scuola di un grande maestro come Alberto Manzi, pioniere dell’uso della tecnologia per promuovere l’emancipazione delle persone. Questo approccio è stato messo in dialogo con il lavoro artistico proposto dall’artista e designer Bruno Munari che ha spesso usato la tecnologia in modo divergente, rompendo le regole proposte nei libretti di istruzioni. Per 3 anni insegnanti e stakeholders da Grecia, Finlandia, Lithuania, Polonia, Repubblica Ceca, Turchia, Portogallo hanno approfondito l’operato del maestro Manzi, conformando alcuni strumenti e domande a quanto proposto oggi dal Centro che cerca di far vivere l’eredità pedagogica del maestro di “Non è mai troppo tardi”. Il convegno si svolge a Bologna il 13 giugno presso la sede dell’Università (in via Zamboni 32) e il 14 giugno presso l’Assemblea legislativa della Regione Emilia-Romagna (in viale Aldo Moro 50).

Marshall Rosenberg (1934-2015), the American psychologist that founded, taught and spread Nonviolent Communication (NVC) worldwide, said he did not invent something new, but only gathered existing wisdom and put it into a newly structured frame. Like the water lily in the swamp, his gift for humanity started to form as he grew up in a racist environment, witnessing and suffering from humiliation, segregation and fights: "Growing up as a kid, I couldn’t stand to see people torment other people" he wrote. Through these experiences he developed a "kind of awareness of suffering – why do people do this – and particularly, why does it have to happen to me?"
