Note to Reader:

Waterbucket eNews celebrates the leadership of individuals and organizations who are guided by the vision for Living Water Smart in British Columbia to build greener communities and adapt to a changing climate; and embrace “design with nature” approaches to reconnect people, land, fish, and water in altered landscapes. 

The edition published on April 19, 2022 featured Dr, Jamil Zaki, professor of psychology at Stanford University, California. His research focus is on empathy. He describes empathy as less like a fixed trait, and more like a skill, which we can work on and build.

Touching the past can connect us to the future

The Partnership for Water Sustainability publishes these weekly e-Newsletters to showcase and celebrate the passion, commitment and perseverance of champions who are establishing precedents for others to follow in B.C.’s local government setting.

Our focus is on local government staff as well as those in the stewardship sector. The ultimate goal of the series is to inspire all the players to collaborate to ‘Improve Where We Live’.

Periodically we like to mix things up by featuring thought leaders from other sectors and other places. In September 2019, we introduced readers of Waterbucket eNews to Dr. Jamil Zaki. He is an associate professor of psychology at Stanford University and director of the Stanford Social Neuroscience Laboratory.

He wrote The War for Kindness: Building Empathy in a Fractured World – an inspiring call to action in this era of a rapidly changing climate. All things considered, it seemed like an appropriate time to bring this story forward.
