Historically, the Observatory has focused on supporting K-12 violence prevention research. The Observatory’s headquarters have recently moved from Paris, France to Flinders University, Adelaide, Australia.
The mission of the International Observatory for School Climate and Violence Prevention is to contribute to best practices and the science of school climate and other prosocial e.g. (well-being, social emotional learning, character education, mental health promotion) K-12 school improvement efforts as well as violence prevention efforts that support school safety and children’s healthy development, school and life success across the world.
The Observatory supports international research about individual and school wide improvement efforts that are designed to promote K-12 wellbeing, social emotional, civic and academic learning as well as safe, supportive, equitable and engaging climates for learning that promote school and life success.
The Observatory is invested in furthering conversations between research, policy and practice leaders that foster the healthy development of individual students, school communities and an engaged democratic citizenry.
We hope that you will join us – as research, policy and/or practice learners and leaders – in furthering understandings and collaborative learning that supports all children to be able to learn and grow up in healthy ways.
