BBC World Hacks visits Roots of Empathy
Radio producer Harriet Noble and video journalist Richard Kenny came from London to visit a Gr.4 classroom in Toronto to see and hear for themselves the power of the Roots of Empathy program. They stayed for the afternoon interviewing teacher Tom Veenstra, our Mom Cory and baby Naomi, our Instructor Kathy Kathy, our Founder President Mary Gordon, and, of course, the students. They have produced a video, a podcast, and a radio broadcast. The World Hacks slogan is People Fixing the World – and Roots of Empathy is trying.
