Compassion Matters, a project from The Dalai Lama Centre for Compassion, aims to create a kinder and happier society by inspiring children and young people to lead compassionate lives.
We provide a basis for children to explore ethical ideas about compassion and learn skills to support their wellbeing. At the heart of the project, children explore ideas that are universal to all human beings such as; Where does happiness come from? How is the failing part of learning? What is true courage? What is a just society?
Children participating also engage with practices and learn skills to support their wellbeing such as emotional regulation, self-awareness, responsible decision making and resilience.
