How can we foster empathy in students?

Empathy is a critical skill to teach right now. It helps us create genuine connections and build stronger relationships that young people can use to harness change in the world. Empathy is ultimately vital for success as it underpins the skills of leadership, creativity and communication.

This webinar is a chance to hear from Global Social Leaders (GSL) and educators in GSL schools about how they are developing empathy skills in students through social action focused project-based learning.
