It is a simple but powerful truth that most people care deeply for other people and the places where they live.
But we underestimate how widespread values like compassion, solidarity and a sense of community are - and this can hold us all back from collectively addressing big social and environmental problems like inequality and climate change.
As volunteers, we have a powerful opportunity to speak openly about what motivates us to give our time and skills, and show that caring values are held by the majority of folks in society. Imagine what the world could look like if our first thought was that someone is likely to be kind and caring, instead of self-interested or greedy!
Help change the public perception of human values and volunteering by joining one of our special workshops. We will explore the psychology of human values, how they influence the way we think and act, and ways that you can help to celebrate your deeply held values in your community and beyond, to help bring about a better world.
Madeline Canmann, a previous participant of a similar workshop said: "I had no idea how much I was going to change. This workshop brought so much to the surface, changing the way I think and view the world - all of it very positive and hopeful.”
The workshop will be delivered by Ruth Taylor (Common Cause Foundation) and you can attend one of the following sessions:
- Saturday 29 October (in-person in London), 10.00am - 2.00pm (including lunch) or
- Wednesday 19 October (online), 5.30 - 7.30pm and Thursday 20 October, 5.30 - 7.30pm (both include a break).
