The event is planned to run alongside the United Nations Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) that is taking place in Glasgow, Scotland. We will share the stage with many people attending the COP26 gathering, giving us a window into this important world event. All of the sessions in Realising a Compassionate Planet are structured as live conversations, designed to engage you in the real dialogues going on now.
Among the questions that our presenters will engage are: How can the moral and existential imperative of compassion become a practical, material reality? How do we activate compassion in the sphere of climate action? What lessons might we take from those who study and work with this powerful quality that can move nations, peoples, communities and individuals to forge peace despite strong impulses to avenge? Or that impels us to restore and defend the rights of those previously excluded from our circles of care and concern?
You will have access to a sophisticated live online conference portal, dedicated solely to this event. You will be able to chat in real time with others from around the world who are attending, as well as engage in live question and answer sessions with presenters. You will also gain access to a unique compassion-in-action gallery, where you will find new ways to engage compassion at a planetary scale.
