Empathy Project 2021
Empathy Project envisions a future society where people of any background can contribute to a better world, humbly beginning from empathy.
Raising the theme of #StoryOfWellness, we would like to invite our friends and networks from all over the world to come together in Empathy Project 2021 and take a role to create positive changes to the world. Starting from June, a series of programs will be delivered and the closing will be on Empathy Week (August, week 4).

Why #StoryOfWellness?

The pandemic has brought us one of the most demanding challenge of our times. While we adapt by migrating our activities online, it can be argued to be a source of many imbalances (GWD, 2021).

As schools and public spaces are still under lockdown, people’s time online has proven detrimental to their both physical and mental health. More people are reporting fatigueness, loneliness, or other forms of disharmony working from home. At the same time, people’s demand for digital entertainment is record-high, presumably as coping method.

According to WEForum (2021), we are 45% more exposed to negative emotions compared to last year. The opposite of these emotions is wellness, a state where our physical, mental, social, spiritual, and economical aspects are optimal (WHO, 2006). When both our internal and external needs are attuned, we become agile adapting to new circumstances. Wellness therefore enables not only productivity but also resiliency.

Imagine if like-minded people gather and resolve to achieve wellness together. They would connect, heal, and make their next steps.

Imagine these people are us; would we be creating a better world, at least for our surroundings?

So, let’s make our #StoryOfWellness together!
