CONTENT:

Threats, bullying and discrimination are everyday events. And yet hardly anybody looks or intervenes – often despite their good intentions. How can I help when someone is being assaulted, without putting myself in danger? The participants of the ZARA workshop “Moral Courage” will receive answers to these and other questions – this training session addresses the actual opportunities individuals have to intervene in “awkward” situations in the workplace or in public. So to be brave enough to support others and act with moral courage, come along to the training!

METHODS:

Various methods from theoretical components, interactive exercises and discussions as well as activities in small groups. The participants’ experiences serve as a starting point.  In the foreground is the questioning of thought processes and specialist further training with the help of theoretical basic knowledge.

- Learning what moral courage action constitutes
