Building Relationships

I ► Others (We) ► Society     


The world is in crisis. There is a strong need everywhere to feel more secure and safe. But security is more than increasing weapons, fences and survey cameras! Security also means a subjective feeling of security - a state of well-being, (inter-)connectedness, confidence and intercultural / intergroup understanding. This subjective dimensions of security, including a person’s emotional management, can be trained. Security needs SECURING CITIZENS - people who discover their potential for agency in crisis, their visions, values and convictions. They wage conflicts constructively and comprehend personal development as benificial for the whole society.
