Triple V is a project aimed at fostering nonviolent societal coexistence. Using the evidence-based approach of Values Communication, it seeks to inspire youngsters to conduct an active examination of their own and others’ value concepts. The project creates educational centres in several European countries where educators and youth leaders can be trained in the methods of Values Communication. With the Values Communication approach and its practical implementation across Europe as a basis, the project partners develop an open-source manual for European Values Communication.

Over the last few months they have written,produced and edited there own film, which was launched at the triple-v intermediate conference in Scotland Feb2012. The students collectively decided on the subject of ‘Body Image’, they felt that this was a very important and current issue affecting many young people across the UK and in Europe. At the launch, which was attended by a representative of the Scottish Parliament, an invite was extended to the team to attend and participate in a Scottish parliament working group looking at eating disorders, a tremendous achievement which was based solely on the impact of the film.
