English Courses

Would you help another person, even if it might be dangerous for you? Are you well prepared for this? Are you interested to try it out?

It is not an easy task to intervene in a conflict situation in public places, i.e. to show moral courage. Within the project “Otto greift ein” (literally: Otto intervenes) we are offering moral courage courses where we are discussing and exercising how to react adequately in such situations, without further violence.

The duration of the course is four hours. It comprises of a theoretical introduction into the topic, practical exercises in the form of role-plays and closing discussion with room for your questions, concerns etc.

The following courses will be offered in English language – please choose a suitable date:
