Move This World (MTW) is a global nonprofit that uses creative movement as a vehicle to transform conflict, violence and bullying in communities. MTW focuses specifically on empowering individuals with the necessary skills to identify emotions within themselves, be empathetic in their interactions with others, and act as change agents in their communities. Our hallmark program is an innovative, evidence-based curriculum that engages students Pre-K-12 in movement-based activities that promote empathy, mediation skills, diversity appreciation, anger management, and conflict transformation. In this way, MTW fosters cumulative skill building that grows with the individual and produces measurable impact. Using MTW's holistic approach, we engage students, families, educators, administrators, and communities with targeted programs that promote social change through the art of movement.
In partnership with schools, community-based organizations, and families, MTW is building and connecting more peaceful communities in the United States in Baltimore, Newark, New York City and Washington DC and internationally in Colombia, Germany, and the Philippines. To date, MTW has worked with over 8,500 individuals across 22 cities on four continents. Our vision is to change the way we teach and learn, with movement and empathy at the core.
