On Thursday 13 October from 3 to 6 pm, 200 young people aged 16 to 25 meet in Oslo to explore together the science of empathy and compassion, how these qualities can be cultivated, and what benefits such qualities bring to the modern world.
This year for the first time, the Youth Gathering will be streamed internationally to English-speakers. You can follow the live web streaming here. Due to sound difficulties the general welcome has been edited out.
This 4th Youth Gathering, which previously took place in London and San Francisco, precedes the professional conference Empathy and Compassion in Society.
If you feel inspired, please get in touch and we can explore the possibilities together to organize a similar youth event, in your school/university or in a different context.
