I have worked in the field of public health and preventive medicine for over 30 years with a focus on supporting & improving public health service systems for children & youth with disabilities at the state, natl. & intl. levels. I currently work to develop & implement practical, engaging strategies to help people engage in "3D" compassion (caring for others, self, and the Earth). I serve as Founder, Compassionate Austin; Leadership Team Member, Compassion Games Intl; & Education Program Associate, Charter for Compassion Intl. I'm an Organizer of the OpenIDEO Austin Chapter!!
The Facebook post by Linus Wafula (see the link below) says and shows it all! Linus and his dedicated volunteers work tirelessly to inspire and empower youth in Kenya for peace, green-living, and health.
The Olymp-i-a Challenge is a daily exercise of creativity for peace, green-living, and health. The Challenge engages children and youth in the practice of empathy, intentional awareness and creative expression. We grow stronger in what we practice!
Brannon Veal - It's great to have a submission from an OpenIDEO Austin Chapter member for this Challenge. You bring lots of experience and an innovative approach to tackle this critical issue in our city. Exciting!
Hi Marilyn Turkovich . As Founder of Compassionate Austin (one of approximately 400 self-designated compassionate cities/communities that are part of the Charter for Compassion International (CCI) Compassion Cities Campaign), I am so excited about this project! CCI could mobilize compassionate cities throughout the world to engage in design thinking to address this challenge and offer local solutions. In addition, I am currently working to organize an OpenIDEO Austin Chapter. I believe there is a wonderful crosswalk that we can create between the compassionate cities and the OpenIDEO city chapters. This is a fantastic opportunity to catalyze and enhance global education efforts for youth in emergency situations!
