What’s the charter all about?

The International CampaignThe International Campaign for Compassionate Cities is a global campaign inspired by the Golden Rule (treat all others as you wish to be treated yourself).Its purpose is to encourage city leadership from around the world to create and bring together efforts toward increasing compassion through local initiatives, policy, and projects.In a Compassionate City, leaders incorporate compassion into local initiatives, policies and projects.

When a community adopts compassion as a focus for actions it undertakes, it can transform cities and it can transform the world.

Over 180 cities throughout the world that have enrolled to be designated as Compassionate Cities.

The Metro Detroit Compassionate Action Network is our local response to this international campaign.
