Empathy is the imaginative act of stepping into the shoes of another person and looking at the world from their perspective. It’s seemingly on everyone’s lips – from the Dalai Lama, Angela Merkel and Barack Obama, to our own Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull. Yet, we are simultaneously witnessing a global refugee crisis, the seemingly unending threat of global conflict, and the continued rise of individualism in western society.
This major event presented by the School of Life will feature a diverse panel of prominent Australians from the media, arts, business, sport and government. Led by cultural thinker and internationally acclaimed empathy expert Roman Krznaric, it will explore key issues in modern Australian society and how we might turn our empathic potential into a powerful tool for positive impact. An event not to be missed.
