GLOBAL VOICES: Let’s make compassion part of the curriculum

GLOBAL VOICES: Let’s make compassion part of the curriculum | Workplace Climate | Scoop.it
A Halifax girl is allegedly raped by four boys, and her peers use social media to spread a photo of the incident throughout her high school. Haunted by the pain and humiliation, she ends her life.

 

 “What is wrong with kids today?” Perhaps the problem is what we are teaching them or, more accurately, what we are not teaching: compassion.

Start Empathy | Ashoka United Kingdom

Start Empathy | Ashoka United Kingdom | Workplace Climate | Scoop.it

Empathy simply put, is the ability to understand the feelings and perspectives of others, and to use that understanding to guide one’s actions. It is critical both to individual human development and to our collective ability to solve problems and build a stronger society. The world is changing - faster than ever before. In this new world of flux, empathy plays a crucial role in innovation, changemaking, and solving entrenched systemic problems.

 

‘Start Empathy’, aligned with Ashoka’s  ‘Everyone a Changemaker’ (EACH) initiative, envisages a community of individuals and institutions dedicated to building a future in which every child masters empathy and other changemaking skills like teamwork, leadership and creativity.

‘Start Empathy’ is not out to build a single programme or curriculum. Rather, we're working to unleash demand for empathy as a core 21st century skill – collaborating with social entrepreneurs, educators, parents, and key players in the media, business, and academic sectors to make empathy as essential as reading and maths in early education.

How to develop compassion in every facet of community

Compassion -- whether the underlying force in individual lives, for crafting new laws, or for teaching students life lessons -- may be one of the key elements of human civilization we take for granted.

 

In a two-day workshop on Compassion and Creativity at the Portuguese Cultural Center, starting Friday and organized by Western Connecticut State University, doctors, educators, clergy, and government leaders examined how to shift the focus from "me to we," how to turn a destructive event into something constructive and how compassion affects the dynamics of the community.
