Hugh Mackay – The Kindness Revolution
May 19, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm| Free
Often described as ‘”the man who explains us to ourselves”, Hugh Mackay is one of Australia’s most respected social psychologists, and has had a 60 year career studying and interpreting Australian social trends.
“Revolutions never start at the top. If we dare to dream of a more loving country; kinder, more compassionate, more cooperative, more respectful, more inclusive, more egalitarian, more harmonious, less cynical – there’s only one way to start turning that dream into a reality. Each of us must live as if this is already that country.”
In ‘The Kindness Revolution’ Hugh urges us to reflect on the challenges we faced in 2020 and ask ourselves: What really matters to me? Am I living the kind of life I want? What sort of society do we want to become? We should also appreciate the inspiring displays of kindness and consideration, the sacrifices we have made for the common good, the value of our community and neighbours. We can apply these lessons to bring out the best in ourselves and to become renowned as a loving country.
