June 13 was Empathy Day
Thank you to all who helped make it such an amazing success!
Read stories. Build empathy. Make a better world.
 You can still join in many fantastic  Empathy Day activities

Read stories. Build empathy. Make a better world.

· Use our Read for Empathy Guide to find a book to read with a child

· Share your #ReadForEmpathy book recommendations and see others people’s

· Learn about research showing how stories boost our empathy
· Connect with authors, the empathy experts

To be a successful human being, you need to be in touch with other people’s feelings. I’m delighted to see the launch of Empathy Day and it’s marvellous that schools will be holding special Empathy Award ceremonies on June 13.

In our divided world, children need empathetic skills more than ever. If we can empower the next generation to see and feel what others see and feel, we will be building a better future for everyone. In a big, scary world, EmpathyLab is a light of positivity.
