    Welcome

    4th Empathy and Compassion in Society Conference 14-15 October 2016, Oslo, Norway

    It is a great pleasure to invite you to join the 4th Empathy and Compassion in Society Conference!

    Empathy and Compassion in Society is a conference for professionals from all sectors held by the Tenzin Gyatso Institute and supporting charity organizations .

    This year, the event will be a partnership between the Tenzin Gyatso Institute and the national host Mindfulness Norge (The Norwegian Association of Mindfulness) . The conference will replace the annual conference of Mindfulness Norge .

    Great thinkers say that compassion is key to a successful society . Business leaders are interested in its potential to reduce burnout . Educators know it matters more than academics or sports . Scientific institutes are opening new centres to research it . Most of us hold it as a central value in our personal and professional lives .

    The Empathy and Compassion in Society Conference presents the latest research on how compassion enhances our personal and professional life, universal tools for cultivating empathy and compassion and case studies where these methods have been shown to be effective .

    In 2016, we will explore in particular the topic of education . We all know that children are the future, and we are their guides .

    We need to provide them with warmth, safety, understanding, and the ability to care to enable them to become compassionate children of the world .

    “Let us globalise compassion . Not passive compassion, but transformative compassion that leads to justice, equality, and freedom .” Kailash Satyarthi, Nobel Prize Laureate 2014 .

    The Youth Gathering for Secondary Schools and Universities Prior to the conference, young people come together at the Youth Gathering, where they meet out- standing scientists and change-makers to explore the relevance of empathy and compassion in their own lives and to discuss the role of positive human values in wider society .

    The Gathering aims to give invited high school and university students from the age of 16 to 25 and their teachers the opportunity to personally engage with the topic of compassion and will provide prac- tical tools to help every individual make compassion a force for positive change in their lives .

    The topics are presented in a relevant and lively way, connecting modern science with insights from contemplative traditions . The speakers are renowned for their research on compassion and for their commitment to creating a society which is kinder, happier and more human . The event will connect hundreds of other young people all over the world through web-streaming, and will also be filmed and thus be shared widely .

    The Gathering will take place at “Litteraturhuset” (“The Literature House”) in Oslo, Thursday 13 October 2016, at 15 .00-18 .00 .

    Participation will be for invited school classes and their teachers .
