THE STORY:

About Empathy for Peace

Empathy for Peace is a Canadian registered not-for-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of empathy through scientific research and education, with specific applications to evidence based conflict resolution, peace and reconciliation processes. We are located in Toronto, Canada and operate locally, nationally and internationally.

  • We believe that empathy is the foundation of fair, just and peaceful communities.  
  • We advance research efforts that explore the relationship between biological and environmental factors and our ability to empathize;
  • We support empathy research and empathy based initiatives that deliver evidence based results and translate to improved community relations, stronger human rights policies, and a more compassionate and constructive approach to marginalized communities who have long faced poor living conditions.

How You Can Help

We have a full program of initiatives for 2017 including our second Empathy Neuroscience Conference,  Our inaugral Empathy Speaks Lecture Series and an online empathy education and promotion platform.

These programs and others we are currently planning take constructive and meaningful steps to advance empathy in our society.

Empathy in our schools and colleges, in our friendships, in our homes, in government initiatives and in international diplomacy. This is needed. In this changing and uncertain environment, smaller organizations like EfP I think will have more impact because they can keep up and pivot more easily and can make more of an impact. Love that EfP is not creating a lot of new programs but instead focusing on research and how research can be applied and building relationships and partnerships. I hope you can continue to partner with other organizations (for profit and not for profit) to do this important work. Simon’s ted talk on empathy is awesome! For us non-scientists, it’s an important observation to see empathy as a science and something that can be studied and documented. Love the team you have pulled together! Hope more students will get involved as the organization grows. Congratulations on your launch event on May 25th – good luck! 2 months ago
