Free Online event Tuesday 20th April 5:30pm organised in collaboration with CWO and Compassion in Politics
Right now, our politics seems nasty, divisive, and highly-charged. But has it always been this way? And what’s led to it being such a difficult environment? How can we build our own internal resilience while working to create a more respectful and harmonious atmosphere? What do we know already about the way our political system affects our psychology and what reforms are needed to make it more compassionate, inclusive, and cooperative?
