Realising a Compassionate Planet
A live online event where compassion science meets climate science
November 5, 2021
The Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education at Stanford University, the Centre for Technomoral Futures at the University of Edinburgh, and the University of Edinburgh’s Global Compassion Initiative are thrilled to co-host a first-of-its-kind event bringing compassion science into dialogue with climate science.
Realising a Compassionate Planet runs alongside the UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) to provide a global gathering place where changemakers and scientists can join forces with those around the world who are tapping into compassion as one of the strongest motivations for change know to humankind. There has never been a more vital time for action to address the climate crisis. Droughts, heatwaves, floods, wildfires, hurricanes, and more–the signs are all around us that we must act. From governments and corporations to families and communities, we need to know how to catalyze compassion into action.
The global community’s response to climate change cannot rely on scientific expertise, accurate data, and technical excellence alone — it requires realizing the power of a compassionate planet.
