Empathy Week 2020 - An introduction

Teaching empathy is not enough.

That is why we are empowering over 100,000 students to turn compassion into action. Empathy Week is about helping young people understand the issues that affect their world, creating the space for them to connect with others and giving them the chance to make a real difference. Together, we will build the #EmpathyGeneration.

This year the theme is ‘Sporting Change’ highlighting the people and stories of the Slum Soccer organisation in India. They use football to empower young people and help educate them out of poverty, a remarkable organisation.
