THE NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL COMPASSION IN EDUCATION NETWORK (NICEN)

Our extensive literature and organisational review of those involved in promoting compassion in education reveals a wide, disparate but increasing range of organisations based predominantly in the UK, USA, Canada and Australia. Some have the promotion of compassion as an explicit aim. Others refer to such things as character education, emotional literacy, spiritual literacy and values education. Many are expressly secular; some stress the nature of the sacred. All offer schools practical as well as theoretical advice.

The foundation will create the National and International Compassion in Education Network which aims to list, collate, summarise, keep up to date and hyperlink all these organisations as a one-stop electronic shop permitting interested parties to quickly and simply access the organisation that best suits their needs and aspirations.
