Who Are We?


C2Ci - Creating Peace, Peace by Peace

This website represents a growing community of trainers and supporters of Nonviolent Communication (NVC) committed to teaching and creating Nonviolent Communication awareness throughout Australia and neighbouring regions.

This community is an informal arrangement of people making individual offerings, and individually holding legal responsibility for their own offerings.

It includes volunteers giving freely and joyfully, time and energy to this vision.
