Empathy is the most essential skill to teach right now

It allows us to connect and make sense of ourselves as well as those and the world around us - whether we agree with them or not. Empathy is not just to be a desired skill, it is ultimately vital for success as it underpins the skills of great leadership, creativity and  communication.

Empathy
is the skill to understand another and the ability to create space for someone to reveal their authentic self whilst reserving judgement.

Making the  intaginble... tangible.

Over 5 years we have helped hundreds of schools and thousands of students understand how to empathise and strengthen it as a useable daily skill.

The number one way to develop and improve empathy is by increasing the diversity and quantity of experiences you have - which is where we come in. 

Our week long festival has curated events, resources and films to truly engage and inspire empathy. This is inclusion in real time!

Film Assembly Resources (age-differentiated)

Access a film-based assembly and follow up lesson linked to our 2024 theme of 'Home'. Age-differentiated, these resources will enable you to practice and develop empathy in your classroom. With a focus on building emotional literacy and promoting dialogue that helps increase connection and empathy between peers and teachers.

Online Webinar Series 

Access to our incredible series of speakers and online events. With a strong focus on storytelling and learnings which students can be inspired from. Each of our events will have a specific target audience and range from exciting assemblies for 5-11 year olds to free CPD training for teachers and even parents!

In-person events

We're teaming up with some incredible partners that will offer some limited but amazing experiences for students and staff (UK based only).

Empathy can be taught.
It can be learnt.

Our 2022 pilot study showed:
  • 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.
