Empathy, or the ability to put yourself in someone else’s shoes and understand another’s perspective, is what connects us. We use it instinctively in our everyday lives – from how we relate to our children to resolving disputes.
It is when that empathic connection is broken, weakened or diffused by circumstance or other stronger emotions that families get fragmented, individuals isolated and communities live in conflict.
Empathize Now! facilitates the designing of programmes, activities, workshops, festivals and exhibitions for classrooms, boardrooms and public spaces to promote the positive impact empathy can have in creating humane societies.
