About EmpathyLab

EmpathyLab is a new catalyst organization, passionate about the creative power of words to build empathy, and the power of empathy to make the world a better place. We are fsacinated by neuroscience evidence that stories can train our brains to be more empathetic. 

We have a vision of a better world with more empathic children driving social change to build more respect, understanding and co-operation using stories more systematically to develop children’s empathy life skills 

Our aim is to join partners in creating an empathy revolution similar in power to the mindfulness movement. Our unique contribution to this societal shift will be to help policy makers , parents and practitioners use stories much more systematically to build empathy and social activism. 

Paragraph title

EmpathyLab is led by Miranda McKearney OBE, working with four fellow founders and activists from the worlds of education, libraries, digital and literature development. We are an unusual combination of a campaigning and delivery organisation.

We are supported by many authors, and have a distringusihed reference group made up of experts in child development, psychology, learning and literacy/literature.
