Bringing the science of compassion into dialogue with the science of climate change, we hope to catalyze the power of compassion to care for the human family. The recent United Nations climate report – endorsed by hundreds of scientists and representing thinking from every country on Earth – likens the current situation to a “code red” for humanity. Droughts, heatwaves, flooding, wildfires – the signs are all around us that we must act now.
Compassion is the human response to the suffering inherent in climate change. Compassion offers the intrinsic motivation that can link climate science to the practical solutions for us and our planet. It is the motivational ‘glue’ that can bind us together to make coordinated change at the scale needed to secure sustainable and flourishing lives for future generations.
We hope you will join us for this day of conversation and action. You will meet changemakers, scientists, activists, and artists who are working to fundamentally shift how we relate to one another and to the human family.
