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

As our world becomes more connected, navigating it becomes more complex. Empathy underpins the other traits and skills we need to develop in order to face society's biggest challenges.

Teacher Testimonials

Dubai British School

"We absolutely loved empathy week and we got lots of thoughtful discussions out of it, the resources and videos were fantastic and really exposed the children to lots of social issues that they might not be exposed to here in Dubai. We also had some lovely feedback from parents that this was then being discussed around the dinner table. We are definitely hoping to do it again next year!"
