Compassion & the SDGs

After publishing a position paper in The Lancet, we launched a year-long social media campaign (#compassion4theSDGs) starting in January 2023. This campaign emphasizes the integral nature of compassion in the SDGs through an examination of individual SDGs (released on relevant "world days") and case studies.
