The purpose of this session is to explore the ways that teaching compassion and 21st century skills are linked conceptually and in practice. We will play with our new understanding of compassion and 21st century skills and prototype ways to integrate them into classroom and school-based activities. This session gives you permission to be risky, creative, and fail in interesting ways.
