Empathy Revolution

Welcome to Empathy Revolution, a set of resources designed to inspire a global explosion of empathic thinking and action. I believe that empathy – the imaginative act of stepping into another person’s shoes and viewing the world from their perspective – is a radical tool for social change and should be a guiding light for the art of living.

Find out about my new book, Empathy: A Handbook for Revolution, discover the best empathy books and films at the world’s first Empathy Library, learn more through Empathy Videos and Articles, and take part in other Empathy Projects. It’s time we all joined the Empathy Revolution.
