About CTW

The vision of the Conflict Transformation Weave (CTW) is a vibrant world, full of robust and resilient relationships, in which we step towards each other and grow from conflict.

Our mission is to pre-empt and transform conflict within the NVC UK network, in order to strengthen the potential of NVC to support social change.

Our purpose is to support people in NVC networks in the UK to live NVC consciousness when conflict arises.

Current members are Jo McHale, Sarah Ludford, Ceri Buckmaster, Kirstin Heidler, Dany Schirmer

Occasional supporting members are: Viv Slack and Sibongile Pradhan.


Our history

The Conflict Transformation Weave (CTW) began in 2016 as a response to Centre for Nonviolent Communication’s (CNVC) exploration to restructure itself, in which the New Futures Plan (NFP) was created, which recommended groups of ‘Weaves’ fulfilling various functions and interweaving to create an interconnected, global organisation.

This way of organising made sense to us, and we had witnessed the need for the NVC UK network to find more effective and systematic ways of responding to conflict, so we began the journey of creating agreements and upskilling ourselves and the network to think more systemically about the tensions which divide us.

The CTW began at the Annual Gathering of NVC trainers in the UK in November 2016, an initiative which has run yearly since then and when the website www.nvc-uk.com was launched. You can see our reports and discussions at the gathering here. 2019 2018 2017
