Acting for a more altruistic world

One altruistic gesture can lead to another

By starting with one small act that is a source of joy, we can compensate for the feeling of overwhelming helplessness. With this first step we can begin to multiply our actions and inspire those around us.

An engagement that suits you

Engagement can take different forms: minor daily adjustments or major personal or professional choices; sudden or gradual change, or even collective initiatives.

It is important to keep in mind the three pillars: inspiration, training and engagement. Inspiration and training are meaningless if they do not lead to some form of action. The important thing is to find the engagement that suits you in order to act for a more altruistic world: an engagement that is nourished by inspiration and daily practice.

Without wisdom, compassion is blind; without action, compassion is barren.
