Irish Examiner: N4 is Answer to Empathy Deficit
The Irish Examiner profiled Narrative 4 in its January 2018 article, “Is our empathy failing us?” The Examiner‘s Elizabeth O’Neill sheds light on our efforts to build empathy and spark collaborative change. After identifying today’s empathy deficit, she asks, “Is it possible to create a world where people simply care more?” Our answer is a resounding yes.
“Empathy is the ability to step with agility and decency into the shoes of someone else,” says N4 Co-founder and President Colum McCann. “It is also the ability to find ourselves in the stories of others.”
O’Neill interviewed McCann along with Regional Director of N4 Ireland, James Lawlor and Director of Global Programs Lee Keylock for this provocative piece.
