The presentation aims to share the experience on cultivating and promoting compassionate communities and activities in Universities. Todos Contigo (We are All With You) Programme offers universities the possibility to get involved in the development of a compassionate city, by promoting compassion amongst students.
The educational programme and workshops in universities include: basic information on palliative care; techniques to strength mindfulness towards suffering; promotion of courage to take compassionate action; care and accompaniment resources, resilience; death, loss and dying; opportunities to participate in volunteering activities, time banking and to be a part of compassionate community networks.
Todos Contigo Programme offers Universities the opportunity to become a “Compassionate University”. Five public and private universities are currently participating in the programme in Spain and Latin America.
