Tom Williams, Co-Host of Compassionate Louisville, wrote an article about the city’s efforts to become more compassionate. He included the Global Game Changers Ali Center event as one way to inspire kids to become more compassionate. He also wrote about Louisville’s accomplishments so far:
Our work in Louisville has been recognized: the city named the Most Livable Large City in 2012 by the Conference of Mayors. We were recognized as the Model Compassionate City by the Charter for Compassion in 2012 and in 2013 when his Holiness the Dalai Lama spoke about a compassionate city at the Yum! Center. Compassionate Louisville has assisted over 30 other cities, large and small, in joining in this commitment to compassion.
If you’re interested in helping Louisville continue this work by introducing the Global Game Changers compassionate curriculum into your school, afterschool, or camp program, please contact us.
If you’re interested in having your school create and sign a Compassionate School resolution, learn more here or contact Jan Helson, host of the Youth Education Constellation of Compassionate Louisville.
