There is a body of evidence that consistently shows that positive relationships and kindness are at the very heart of our wellbeing. In this discussion paper Carnegie Associate Zoe Ferguson starts a process to engage directly with people who want to inject kindness back into their work and communities. This discussion paper explores the evidence on the impact of everyday relationships and kindness on individual and societal wellbeing, and community empowerment and develops a theory of change. Over the coming months the project aims to learn with communities and organisations involved in developing practical approaches to encourage kinder communities.
