Event Categories

On 21st October from 16.00 BST (UTC/GMT+1) join us at Big Stories for Empathy, a practical workshop on Zoom exploring how big stories about real events can help children feel safe, understood and motivated to act.

We will explore how Mindfulness, Stories, Dialogue & Reflection can support children to reconnect with themselves, each other, and the world in the aftermath of the pandemic.

Inspired to act, children will be asked to consider “Which Global Goal would you like to tackle in the future?” to aid their thinking about a social action project they can run back at school this year.

Three schools, each represented by a teacher and two or more pupils, will be contributing to the session and teachers and others with an interest in children’s education are invited to observe and/or take part to get inspired for their own pupils.

This event is organised by The Big Think, part of the UK educational charity the Human Values Foundation.
