Jennifer Nadel: Compassion in Politics, LIVE 25th Feb
Jennifer Nadel is a writer and award winning journalist based in London. Nadel qualified as a barrister and was called to The Bar (Middle Temple) in 1996 before turning to journalism. After a year at the American network ABC News’ London bureau she moved to the BBC where she reported for national television and radio.
Now Jennifer is the Co founder of Compassion in Politics. From inequality to homelessness, divisions over Brexit to refugees dying at sea – imagine how these issues would be tackled if compassion was the main motivation of decision-makers.
Yet compassion has been edged out of the political debate, replaced by a politics of fear, anger, and divisions and a narrative which emphasises individual success over collective well-being and happiness.
And yet, when we look at ourselves and our lives it seems pretty obvious that we are so much more than that. We love, care, volunteer, help and support. Our proudest political achievements as a nation – the introduction of the NHS, the Kindertransport which rescued 10,000 Jewish children from the Nazis, the legalisation of homosexuality – were all built on compassionate principles.
What if instead of rewarding self advancement and encouraging greed we celebrated and cultivated those types of policy and the values that they represent?
Through a new kind of politics and with a new set of values at the heart of decision-making we can create a nation that cares for one another, improves everyone’s lives, and protects our natural world.
Emma Bell: Resilience & Relationships. LIVE on the 11th March
