Schools and recreational facilities in Berlin are particularly affected by the growing presence of violence and understand 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.


At RespAct we 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. Utilizing of a set of boxing techniques allow them to experience their personal strength on a non-violent level. At the end of each project week the children present their ideas to teachers, parents and others.

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. Sports improve children's self-confidence, as well as help children learn to relax, work in a team and concentrate.
