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.
