Empathy Day

09 Jun 2022

Empathy is a vital human force which has come into sharp focus during the COVID-19 pandemic and we’ve never needed it more. Empathy Day aims to help everyone understand and experience the transformational power of empathy through stories. The day focuses on using books to step into someone else’s shoes. Scientists say that we can train our brain with stories – the more you empathise with characters, the more you understand other people’s feelings.
