About Me

 

During the past decade, Eduardo have been working in both public and private contexts, leading programs to promote diversity comprehension, social change, community empowerment and collective innovation. He worked with one of the most influential national school-based conflict resolution intervention in his country (“Aulas en Paz” which translates to “Classrooms in peace”), very early in his professional career. He traveled across different regions of Colombia training teachers and school counselors in conflict resolution tactics and collecting data to design and test a “bottom up” program for lowering the levels of aggression in adolescents and children. From that moment on, he has been working in the psychological and social sciences professional fields, as a consultant, both with adults and youth.
