Can You Help Decode Kindness?

We all think we know about kindness, but what does it really mean? What makes us act kindly to each other, or not? How can we encourage people to be kinder? We need your help to find out!

Carnegie UK Trust have teamed up with Young Scot to look at understanding the barriers to kindness in everyday life and supporting young people to develop ideas to encourage and embed kindness in their community.

Young Scot are running a workshop on Tuesday 11th December from 5-8pm at the Young Scot offices in Edinburgh and invite all young people aged 11-25 to attend this workshop to look at Kindness in more depth and put some ideas forward for how to encourage people to be kinder to each other.

Sign up here, email or call 0131 313 2488 to sign up!

This project is part of Carnegie UK’s Kindness Innovation Network (KIN), a Scotland-wide network which aims to gather like-minded citizens to work together to find innovative ways to challenge the status quo, and embed kindness in organisations, workplaces and communities across Scotland.
