Welcome to WMO – a platform that promotes respectful intercultural and non-armed understanding. We believe that „Mediation is a social core skill that lies veiled within each of us.“ By using the term of Mediation, we want you to understand that Mediation is not a single method but more likely a conglomerate of diverse competencies and skills.
By promoting a constructive dialogue within an area of mutual respect and non-escalated armed conflict (previously named: ‘culture of peace‘), it is intended to make the individual reflect in order to identify a person’s point of view, to raise awareness towards social and political conceptions, and to communicate knowledge that may assist in creating enduring solutions to conflicts and tensions created by human interactions, states, and organizations.
We try to equip individuals as well as future generations in general with tools of Critical Thinking and Conflict Management Competencies by offering innovative educational programs that are accessible by everyone. Reaching everybody means that the educational concept is acceptable and practical within every type of culture. The cross-border and cross-cultural training does not intend to impose a western style of Applied Mediation on another culture, but it deals with a sensible core or the point within the circle. This core emulsifies with the cultural background and language of the student and allows him or her to become a unique inner border professional. In this way, the WORLD MEDIATION ORGANIZATION is able to offer the only worldwide achievable training that respects and works with global diversity. We believe that „Ignorance is no acceptable option.“
It has always been the goal of WMO to spread the seed of peace as wide as possible. Therefore, we developed a book that represents the core insights that were gathered during decades of impactful work in the field. It turned out being a meaningful and close-to-practice guide that we offer now in several languages. This compendium combines all members and visionaries who feel connected to what WMO represents, namely mutual respect, peace supportive dialog, and intercultural understanding. The book on Mindful Mediation is a short, clean, and pure guidebook towards change-making and the building of a more balanced society in the future.
Our society needs more peacebuilders, more change-makers, and more individuals who stand up for the rights of peace throughout each of our global communities. Equip yourself with meaningful findings that have the power to make a difference. Stand up and lead your people. Get your insights right here …
