CNVC Project in Eastern Europe

Welcome:

My name is Eva Rambala and I am the coordinator for this project. My dream is to have at least 3 CNVC Certified Trainers in each of the 25 Eastern European countries. These countries are: Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Georgia, Greece, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Moldova, Poland, Romania, Russia, Slovenia, Slovakia, Serbia, Turkey and Ukraine.

Why? Nonviolent Communication is the most meaningful thing I have ever come across, so far, and there is nothing I enjoy more than sharing and learning it. I also enjoy hanging out with people who have the same interest.

Why in this region?
I was born and grew up here, I love this part of the world and I happen to be the right place at the right moment when the geographical projects started in our network. After the communist system collapsed in this part of the world, we needed to learn a lot about cooperation; how to stand up for ourselves and how to relate to authority with a compassionate manner.

Lately our organization has been busy with other things so these geographical projects are kind of put on halt for an organizational point of view. I am still living here and my dream is still the same, I have quite some struggle, and some great joy and successes as well.

Purpose of the project

  • Build NVC consciousness in Eastern Europe by developing skilled trainers and vibrant NVC communities in every country. To have at least 3 CNVC Certified Trainers in each Eastern European country.
  • Find new ways to use the media and to create a network of practice groups so that millions of people will be able to learn NVC with little financial outlay.
  • Enhance the effectiveness of sharing NVC world-wide by creating connection between Eastern European trainers and those in the rest of the world.

How can you contribute or be part of this project?

You can contribute by offering financial support, contacts, empathy, or sharing your training experience (after building connection with some from the region) and materials with trainers in the region.

Contribute financial support to:

  • Enable a trainer to be sent, on request, to support development of an NVC team in a new country, regardless of the country’s financial situation. Please note, to travel to a richer place within Europe is much cheaper than to go to a smaller country, with less financial resources. For example to go to Chisinau, Moldova cost four times more than to go to Brussels in Belgium. If you check the call rates to Chisinau on Skype it costs: 0.140 to Belgium, UK or US the same service costs 0.02, and in these places people has usually smaller homes, with less access to accommodate friends and the hotels are often more expensive because there are much less tourist
    This usually involves extending NVC into a new language as well.

How your money is going to be used?

  1. I would like to be sure if someone would like to start a new project in a country (in this region, this usually means a new language as well), they can get a trainer who goes there and shares NVC with them, so a local NVC team could be set up, regardless of this countries financial situation
  2. I’d like to offer a yearly meeting possibility for those who are about to start to share NVC, so they can get to know each other and learn from each other (East-West Advanced Training) Again, regardless of people’s financial situation.

If you would like to know more details, please visit my website www.rambala.hu where under the headline sponsor me, you can find the most updated information about my fund raising work. Or for further information please contact Éva Rambala: email éva

Connect with trainers in the region by:

  • Come to one of the international (English speaking) trainings offered in the region. Please visit our Eastern European Network, http://www.nvc-easteurope.org
  • Talk over the phone / Skype to offer empathy and/or share training experiences. Trainers in the region speak a variety of languages including English, Russian, French and German. See http://www.nvc-easteurope.org to find contact information of people who are involved and created the Eastern European NVC Network.
  • Share your learning in the form of written material, email, or other resources, such as videos and web-based information. If you send it to (Eva’s Email), I will distribute it to trainers in the region.

Share your contacts:

  • If you know anyone in this region who might enjoy working with us, please let me know - Éva Rambala: email éva

  • Do you know someone in any of the following countries who might be interested in learning Nonviolent Communication and sharing it with others? Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Russia Slovenia, and Ukraine. I am eagerly searching for more connections in Moscow. Contact Éva Rambala: email éva

Next Steps

Within 15 years, I would like to have a local team in each of the 24 countries that are part of Eastern Europe. Over the coming year, I will be focusing on:

  • Find new ways to use the media and to create a network of practice groups, or other type of organization, so that millions of people will be able to participate with little financial outlay.
  • Find contacts to bring NVC to the following new countries: Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Russia, Slovenia, and Ukraine. I am eagerly searching for more connections in Moscow.
  • Support members of each emerging team to be clear about both their own dreams for spreading NVC and their choice of strategies through which they can fulfill those dreams.
  • Continue to support each team to have strong connections with both the other teams in Eastern Europe and teams from countries outside the region.
  • For latest plans and progress, see: www.rambala.hu
