Festival Fun For All The family: NVC Summerfest 2020

Dates announced: Tuesday 4 August – Sunday 9 August 2020

The vision of the Summerfest is to create a world where everyone’s needs matter. Its mission is to offer an intimate, family-oriented festival with Nonviolent Communication as a core value. And its aims are to support you to develop tools for resolving conflict in your family, workplace and community.
