Panel Discussion: Edinburgh’s Empathy Researchers

  • What is empathy? 

  • Can we learn empathy?
Does empathy make our lives better?
  • Does it make communites stronger?
  • Can we have empathy at work?

These are some of the questions we will be asking researchers from Napier and Edinburgh Universities in our accessible panel discussion. We have invited four academics who research empathy in different ways to take part in a panel discussion. We’ve asked them to kick off the discussion by telling us about what they know about empathy in the style of a story accessible to anyone aged 5-105.


You will get the chance to ask questions and find out more about what we know and what we don’t know about empathy.
