Summary

RespAct is a project of CamP Group gGmbH that encourages school children with different cultural and educational backgrounds to become active members and leaders in their communities. RespAct utilizes boxing exercises alongside participative videography and role plays to foster community engagement among children.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Schools and recreational facilities in Berlin are particularly affected by the growing presence of violence and know about the negative effects that physical and psychological violence as well as a lack of conflict competence can have on the education of adolescents. Children are also aware of the problematic environment they live in and want to change it. RespAct utilizes boxing exercises, participative videography and role plays to foster community engagement among primary school children.

How will this project solve this problem?

At RespAct we don't only provide the children with self-defense skills but initiate a comprehensive thought process about the roots of violence and what can be done on a community level to counter these. The mayor game allows the children to take on the role of the local mayor and to convince the rest of the group of their ideas for improvement. At the end of each project week the children present their ideas to teacher, parents and others

Potential Long Term Impact

The RespAct workshops, delivered as project weeks in schools, integrate pupils with different cultural and educational backgrounds and reveal alternative ways of interaction. Participants are encouraged to think about security in their neighborhood, explore various methods of effective, non-violent forms of communication and problem solving. Utilizing of a set of specific boxing techniques allows them to experience their personal strength on a non-violent level.
