Mediation between students is a preventive tool that has been in use in many schools in the Balearic Islands for years. The intention of the Institute for Coexistence and School Success is to promote this tool and other restorative practices that improve coexistence and prevent violence.
During the course of the day, different workshops were held and the presentation of diplomas to the participating students brought this meeting on the island of Menorca to a close. The different activities programmed serve to share and reflect on the initiatives promoted by these students in the centres.
