Changing our perceptions of each other: How to build compassionate communities

November 26 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

£5 – £8

Changing our perceptions of each other: how to build compassionate communities

Tom Crompton, Common Cause Foundation

We tend to lose hope in the potential for change because we don’t believe other people care. Groundbreaking research by the Common Cause Foundation found that most people actually care deeply about one another and the world around them, often valuing equality, compassion and kindness highly. This workshop with the co-founder of the Common Cause Foundation, Tom Crompton, will show you appealing to people’s self-interest can undermine change and how everyday encounters can bring the kindness, compassion and care needed for rapid transition out in the open.

Tom Crompton has worked on values and social change for over a decade with some of the UK’s best-known charities. He is now coordinating the establishment of the Common Cause Foundation, whose work seeks to strengthen and give voice to the compassionate values that underpin social and environmental concern. To see Tom in action watch this video of a past TEDx talk in Exeter

Booking essential: £8 full price/£5 low-waged. There are a limited number of fully subsidised tickets for this event- please email info@transitiontowntotnes.org for information.

This event will be held at the Totnes United Free Church on Fore St.
