Empathy Gym is a storytelling exercise that encourages players to practice empathy by sharing stories about emotions, actions and sensations. Politics and society are increasingly polarised. Polarisation appeals to negative emotions such as fear and anger. Neuroscience tell us that all humans are inherently empathic, and that empathy is a skill we can train. Empathy Gym can be played with friends, family, colleagues or even strangers before a political debate.
