Welcome to our space where we celebrate, explore and promote people’s work and people’s expressions of our common humanity around the world in this time of existential challenge from the COVID-19 virus pandemic.
We believe #CompassionateActs lead to #BetterDecisions for people and societies, and we wish to collect and share your evidence.
This repository carries examples, reflections, and studies of the motivations that any of us can channel to increase our capacity to care for others – we are capturing the conscious choices and actions which people and groups make.
Tell us about the compassion in actions and decision-making you are practising and observing. Get in touch if you have articles to signpost or contribute.
Join us in telling the world how #BetterDecisions lead to #CompassionateActs.
