Building a Stand for Compassion at the Seattle Center Next Fifty - 4/21 Saturday and Earth Day Sunday
We have launched Compassionate Seattle! Thanks to everyone for your participation. The wonderful event at the Center for Spiritual Living on March 31 launched this year's focus on creating Collective Impact.
Here's what's next...
We will be in the Center House at the Seattle Center starting on Saturday 4/21 and Sunday/Earth Day for the kickoff of the Next 50.
Compassionate Seattle is building a “Stand for Compassion” with the community over the next six months and you are invited!
At the stand you’ll be able to:
This year we gave the Compassionate Leadership Award to Rick Williams and those who helped bring about the John T. Williams Memorial Totem Pole Project. Come see the Totem Pole!
At the stand we will share solutions and stories of compassionate action in our community and engage with others in the movement here and beyond.
How about volunteering to give some time (2 to 4 hour shifts) talking with your neighbors? You can help spread the word about the work you are doing and what we are doing together. All of us can be smarter than any of us!
We are collaborating to publish the Seattle Heart Map - a public information resource that visualizes the connections between individuals, groups and organizations committed to creating a culture of compassion in our region.
See who's on it and who they are connected to! We are networking hearts and minds to create a public good.
What is a compassionate city?
A compassionate city recognizes compassion as an ethical imperative in its policy decisions. A compassionate city deepens the quality and the extent to which its citizens embrace compassion in caring for its own neighbors.
Come on down and tell us what you think about creating a culture of compassion in our region and the world!
