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.
