Growing interest for school mediation in Alimos, Athens.
On the 12th of January 2019, the 4th Gymnasium of Alimos, successfully organized a seminar on the topic of “School Mediation: resolution of conflicts and bullying incidents”, with the support of the Municipality of Alimos. Mr. Spyros Antonelos, Accredited Mediator – Partner of RESOLVE Mediator was invited to deliver a speech, along with mrs Aggeliki Pagoni, director of the School.
In the discussion that followed, the students were able to share their relevant experiences, while very interesting views were exchanged between the professors and the parents.
School mediation is an international, widely-known, alternative dispute resolution method that is based on dialogue between the interested parties with the help of a third, neutral and trained party. The aim of the initiative was to encourage students to react against bullying and relevant incidents occurring at school, as well as to actively participate.
