Empathy for social change

This week The School of Life impressively managed to attract 2000 people to a special event about Empathy in Australia, filling the Melbourne Town Hall.

The event centered around Roman Krznaric’s new book Empathy: Why It Matters, and How to Get It. Founder of the Empathy Museum, Roman led an incredible impressive panel: Chris Judd, Deborah Cheetham AO, Dr Susan Carland, Julian Burnside AO QC and Tara Moss.

In a way, each panelist represented a distinct social issue close to their hearts, with the premise of the discussion revolving around how collective empathy can drive social change.
