United in Compassion: How to power up young people to take collective action and create a better world

Join us for a panel event to launch our exciting new research 


 New research developed for the Persil Dirt Is Good Project reveals that while young people are highly compassionate, they are choosing not to reveal their compassion through their words or behaviours for fear of not fitting in. This means that they take part in less social and environmental action than they would like to – to the detriment of their own well-being and their impact on the world around them. The Persil Dirt Is Good project focuses on helping young people to believe that taking action on social and environmental issues is not the niche but the norm.


Join us on 2nd February to launch the research project and accompanying white paper with a panel discussion. We are bringing together academics and thought leaders in the well-being, education and environmental fields to explore the role compassion plays in freeing young people up to get stuck into the issues they care about. This online event is free and will run for two hours beginning at 4pm GMT.
