As you may know, besides my activities as an NVC trainer and assessor in Switzerland, I have been working for some years in English and now in Italian and soon also in Portuguese-speaking countries. All this has a lot to do with the fact that I have been part of the CALF team for three years now.

CALF stands for Candidates / Community Active Learning Forum. It was originally founded by Sylvia Haskvitz and Faye Landey in the US to connect the widely dispersed CNVC certification candidates into a collaborative community. Meanwhile, we are a team of assessors and trainers in Switzerland, Canada, Israel and the United States and candidates from almost every continent.

You may also find it exciting to see how NVC or GFK or CNV connects people across borders and continents. The CALF activities currently include various "online" offers and meetings, which take place on the ZOOM video platform.

We also want to create and offer as many personal encounters as our energy allows. Currently, our international activities are conducted using English as the connecting language. However, we try to give people access to our meetings that do not speak English.

Here are some of our activities. If you are interested, please contact me at +41 79 743 77 63 or

. I will gladly give you information.
