Conflict and Resolution

2015 was CISV’s year of Conflict and Resolution

Over the year, we went through 6 phases, or steps, of ideas, discussion pieces, materials and tools to help you to explore Conflict and Resolution throughout the CISV year. 

Conflict and Resolution step 4

Welcome to Step 4! In Step 4 we focus on Junior Branch's Stand Up project. All educational activities produced by Stand Up so far are available on FacebookAnd remember Stand Up are asking for everybody who has run one of their activities to email them a picture of a film clip of the activity.

In our final blog post for Step 4 we review the educational activities produced by Stand Up so far, and show how they can be useful for Chapters.

Welcome to Step 3! With the programme season nearly upon us this step will focus on how we can all use Conflict and Resolution within CISV programmes.

We’ll do this by highlighting and packaging useful educational resources for staff, leaders and participants. With these resources close at hand, you will easily be able to bring Conflict and Resolution into the heart of your 2015 summer programmes, both through activities and in a more practical ways, dealing with conflicts that might emerge in day-to-day life within your camp.

In our third blog post, Rupert Friederichsen and Anders Wulff Kristiansen, dig into the issue of bullying. They introduce an activity called the Bullying Circle, which shows the many roles people play when bullying happens. The central point is that too many people who could stop the bullying don’t do so. By understanding how bullying happens we can change our behaviour. The activity can be used with a range of age groups. Check it out and consider running it at your camp this season! 

Finally, in our fourth blog post, the Jirafa Project Team are back to launch their book Leaving on a Jetplane: A journey through Conflict and Resolution. The book explores Conflict and Resolution at the interpersonal, local, national and international levels and explores how they all connect. Check out their post, their trailer video, and look out for the book at camps this season! Hats of the the Jirafa team for all their hard work on the book. 

In our second blog post, the Jirafa Project Team introduces 5 Conflict and Resolution activities for any programme. All the activities can be found in the Jirafa Toolbox

It’s 2015 – Welcome to CISV’s year of Conflict and Resolution!

As mentioned in our first post, we view conflicts as an integral part of interconnection with people. And we aspire to shift the focus from how to avoid a conflict to how to handle a conflict when it arises. Download to read more about the 6 steps we'll be taking in 2015.
