Could Emotional Intelligence help us build a better world and achieve the Sustainable Development Goals?
17 May 2019 -  Emotional Intelligence has been shown to foster empathy, contribute to violence prevention and peacebuilding post-conflict, improve interpersonal relationships and communication, make people more self-aware about their own feelings and the feelings of others, and help build resilience.
How can we harness this tool to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, help people be better global citizens, advance justice, peace and the promotion and protection of human rights and safeguard our environment?
Join United Nations Academic Impact for a half-day interactive workshop in which we will examine the elements of Emotional Intelligence with some of the leaders in the field including:
Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence and co-director of the Consortium for Research on Emotional Intelligence in Organizations;
