Ashoka’s “Activating Empathy: Transforming Schools to Teach What Matters”

Ashoka is launching a global initiative to ensure that children master empathy, enabling them to be effective citizens, leaders and trailblazers. Empathy is a critical skill in a world defined by rapid change–one that is foundational to the social, teamwork and leadership skills required to contribute successfully to society.


Activating Empathy: Transforming Schools to Teach What Matters, the challenge is open to teachers, principals, parents, students, and other innovators to share ideas—whether by a project, a program, or a new learning experience—for advancing empathy in education.
