We are dedicated to building fair, just and peaceful communities. We do this by identifying and sharing cross-disciplinary empathy science with people and organizations working to create a more peaceful world. Specifically we support schools, community groups and peace organizations and challenge them to leverage the science to build evidence-based approaches to conflict resolution, peacebuilding and reconciliation processes. By making these connections, we are able to create opportunities for practical evidence-based projects with real-world applications and impact.
We support research efforts that explore the relationship between biological and environmental factors and our ability to empathize and/or that can be translated into evidence based results to improved community relations, stronger human rights policies, and a more compassionate world.
We support community organizations and groups in applying empathy research to develop evidence based initiatives that lead 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.
Empathy for Peace is a registered not-for-profit organization. We are located in Toronto, Canada and operate locally, nationally and internationally
