European Summer Festival
NVC European Summer Festival 2011 / Angleterre (Ambleside)
2010 organization archives
For its 7th Birthday, this year the festival comes to France! We are delighted to invite you, dear Giraffes, from all over Europe (and the world) to gather together and share a community experience based on NVC.
About the Festival :
Lasting for 7 days, this event is an opportunity to experience the very essence of NVC. Together, we’ll create a big lively community (150-200 people), with the specific intention of hearing and meeting everybody’s needs peacefully and respectfully.
In the spirit of Open Space, every participant, with however much,or little, experience of NVC, certified trainers to baby giraffes, can offer or attend workshops. All are welcome to join in the flow of giving and receiving, learning, teaching and practicing NVC.
This festival is different from an NVC workshop in that each participant takes an active part in its creation and leadership.
In the program:
Adults, families and children of any and all nationalities are warmly welcomed to a feast of NVC and international connections!
So that we can include as many people as possible, and facilitate a dynamic flow, the official language will be English. ( see comment)
The Festival takes place at "Espace des possibles" www.entre-mer-et-foret.com It’s a centre well known in France, specialising in festivals in personal development.
The site is about 300m from the Atlantic coast and surrounded by natural beauty. There is an area for camping, or you can rent small houses according to your budget and need for comfort. There are designated areas for children and play.
The total number of places at this festival is limited to 200. So we recommend early registration to reserve your place.
We’re looking forward to a transformative and enriching experience for everyone and the meeting of many needs!
The 2010 Festival Organizing Team.
Of course, individuals can also offer a workshop in French or any other language!
