Explore with Australia21 Mindfulness, Empathy and Compassion for change.
The objective of this forum is to investigate how to apply the skill of mindfulness, the competency of empathy, and the motivation of compassion into the decision making of Australia’s political, industry, health, education and community sectors, by bringing together leading thinkers, policy makers, practitioners and researchers in these areas.
