Empathy Week is building the ‘Empathy Generation’ developing students all over the world into empathic and resilient leaders. A global schools programme, each year we produce 5 powerful films paired with fully differentiated and flexible lesson resources that develop the skills of empathy, resilience and leadership. A whole-school approach, every student has the opportunity and is given the agency to change their world.
Empathy Week works with experienced empathy psychologists to instil a framework within the lessons that develop the 5 skills of empathy. Students will be directly developing these over each programme and subsequent years - the skill of empathy takes time!
After the week students take part in a 5-6 week Empathy Action Project where they can work to tackle social issues on a local or global basis. The best projects can be submitted to be awarded the Global Empathy Award which takes place in June 2021 - confirmed judges for this event include - Gavin Dykes - Director World Education Forum and Ger Graus, Global Education Director for Kidzania.
In 2021 Empathy Week is focusing on the theme of ‘Resilience and Diversity’ with 5 amazing humans and their stories which touch on social themes that include but are not limited to racism, suicide, education, being different, refugees, resilience, diversity and grief.
