Training

In working out sustainable solutions for a given problem, the need for development of several competencies for affected people often emerges.  With the help of Foresee’s interdisciplinary professionals, we develop and execute combined or subject-specific training programmes tailored to the given needs of the target groups. With our communication, tolerance and mediation training programmes, we aim to facilitate effective conflict resolution and to reduce and prevent prejudices arising in society. Individual or group training sessions are held for policy makers, practitioners of the social, justice and education system and for members of local communities .
