Welcome to Hedgerley Wood.

This is the new Hedgerley Wood site, dedicated to exploring empathy, in memory of Boo Armstrong. Its creators are Anuradha Vittachi and Peter Armstrong.

It is a space for images, writing, sound and videos that express empathy – both exploring it and putting it into action – building on the work of many friends and colleagues, at OneWorld and beyond.

We hope it will help educate and empower us all in our common quest to become good global citizens, through increasing the empathy with which we understand ourselves and others.

Feel free to comment on, contribute to and share what you find here.
