FORUM: OUT OF THE DARKNESS: COMPASSIONATE RESPONSES
In 2019, the City of Ballarat signed the global Charter for Compassion which aims to promote and cultivate compassion as an underlying principle that characterises all human society and all relationships.
The key project of the Charter is its cities program and there are now 470 cities around the world who are bringing the evidence base of compassion to the healing of communities.
In this forum, chaired by Lynne Reeder from Compassionate Ballarat, you will hear from Charter representatives in Ireland, the European Union, the United States and Australia who will speak about the ways in which community-wide trauma can be restored.
Free but bookings essential.
