The Zero-program is the only program from Norway to be recommended, alongside programs from Spain, Italy and some international projects.
The Zero-program was recommended to the Latin-American countries during a conference in Cartagens de Indias in Columbia in june. The conference was held by the international project Eurosocial, led by France, Spain and Italy on behalf of the European Union. The project seeks to exchange knowledge on different topics between EU and 18 countries in Latin-America.
- The Governments in Latin-America who attended the conference was very attracted to the Zero-program, says Rosario Ortega Ruiz, professor and head of Department of Education at the University of Cordoba in Spain.
Ortega Ruiz has contributed to the program-recommendations published in the report "Management of the Educative Centres in Violence Contexts: Prevention, Attention and Pacific Resolution of the Conflict”.
- We want to recommend good examples for countries to follow. Prevention and dealing with the problem of bullying has been important factors, she says.
Professor Erling Roland, director at the Centre for Behavioural Reserach at the University of Stavanger, Norway, is very pleased with the recommendation of the Zero-program.
- If our Zero-program can be used by schools in the spanish spoken countries in Latin-America, we are ready to contribute. We look forward to any cooperation across continent, and are happy that the Zero-program is considered as one of the best programs to fight bullying in schools, says Roland.
The 18 countries taking part in the international project EurosociAL are Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, Cuba, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay og Venezuela.
