Panel# 13: 1440 Challenge Participants Building Empathy Together Time: Saturday
June 16th, 2012, 10am Pacific/1 pm Eastern http://j.mp/MiN0Ns
In this panel, four participants in the
Challenge come together to dialog about their respective projects
and how they nurture and foster empathy in our society. Each participant
shared their work and then other panelists responded. Responses
included: empathic listening, reflection about the project, rephrasing
or restating what we heard, support, curiosity and questions about the
project. We then made connections and collaborative plans for how we can
work together to raise the level of empathy in society.
If you are a 1440 applicant we invite you to join us in a
panel discussion about how your proposal and work will contribute to
building a culture of empathy and compassion. Just send me a Facebook
message and we'll line that up.

Author, Teaching Empathy: A Blueprint for
Caring, Compassion, and Community. "Empathy education is one of the most critical educational issues of our
time because it is only when students feel emotionally safe and secure
in all areas of the school environment—in the classroom, hallway, or
cafeteria; at recess; and on the bus—that they will begin to focus and
tap into the unlimited potential that lies within each of them. "
