Empathy Week is a global schools programme that uses the power of film to develop the skill of empathy and leadership in every student each year. Since 2020 we have engaged 100,000 students in over 40 countries and across 6 continents - our mission, to build an #EmpathyGeneration.

Crucially, our programme is designed by qualified UK teachers, offering a whole-school and age-differentiated approach to developing empathy in the long term which includes films, assemblies, lessons and an empathy action project for every age from 5 to 18 years old.

Each year 5 human films are made and this year the theme is 'Passion and Purpose', focusing on 5 individuals from across the UK - Dami, Lipa, Kwasi, James and Courtney. Their stories are powerful insights into their lives and cover themes such as racism, the power of sport, immigration, resilience, leadership, having Downs Syndrome, gender equality, mental health and more.
