An award-winning global schools programme in 40+ countries, using the power of film to develop the crucial skill of empathy in students aged 5-18.
Why empathy?

Empathy can be taught, learned and practiced, and films are scientifically proven to help do just that.

As our world becomes more connected and globalised, navigating it becomes more complex. Empathy is the skill that underpins connection, trust, safety and hence wellbeing.

We define it as
the skill to understand another person and the ability to create space for someone to reveal their authentic self whilst reserving judgement.

If we can understand those around us, whether we agree with them or not, we have the ability to build better, more meaningful and fruitful relationships. That's the only way to truly positively change the world as well as our own personal and professional lives.

Our research 

In 2022, we conducted a pilot study in collaboration with the University of Cambridge investigating how effective the Empathy Week programme is at developing the skill of empathy.
 

Students were more responsive to the feelings of others and displayed increased emotional empathy.
Students were able to demonstrate signs of increased self-compassion and heightened self-esteem.
Students were seen to display a greater desire to care for and connect with others.

What
teachers & students say...
