Compassion, altruism and kindness must become core concerns in our health, social care and educational services. Compassionate action is crucial to family, community and intercultural relations, and in the global, national and local responses to refugees fleeing war.
The Darwin Centre Trust (DCT) has a vision to shape future leaders of societies around the world through a programme of postgraduate study facilitated by the Darwin International Institute for the Study of Compassion (DIISC). Darwin scholars will explore the many meanings of compassion and their scope and utility in practice. We need to seek ways to manifest and integrate compassion at the core of all and any human activity.
