Tiago's insight:

“Love Hate & Everything in Between”, a new documentary exploring the importance of empathy in today’s ever interconnected world.

The program involves periodically taking infants to elementary schools where students become attached to the babies and learn to empathize, ultimately raising their emotional and social consciousness.
