Gentlebooklet

GentleBooklets it is a series of long-form articles written by different authors.

The booklets, designed for a quick read, feature texts and images. We have kindly asked to the authors to comment on the term “kindness.” Authors and photographers have donated their work.

The motivations behind the project are the same as those of Gentletude, the desire to spread awareness about the need for “kindness” in our society, a society too focused on personal success to remember the basics of everyday living and respect for the environment that hosts us.

Our decision to present these ideas in a series of publications is due to the awareness that, in order to stimulate people to think about these issues, it is necessary to present some concrete examples. In this case, the examples are provided in the texts written by the authors.

  • Languages: Italian and English
  • From 2014 we have published 21 Booklets in pdf and e-book format.
  • We have won the Swiss prize “Faigirarelacultura”

 

We also decided to give life to an ambitious project:

 

Describe the Kindness worldwide.

The project: is Kindness only one? Which meaning does our definition of Kindness have in other parts of the world? What are the ideas and the projects underway to make this world a better place?

We asked the participating countries:

The definition of Kindness in their own countries. How it is concretely expressed. What are the main dimensions on which the accent is placed (education, training, awareness…). How can Kindness be spread, which are the levers, which are the long-term projects and dreams for the future.

 

Here two examples:

Kindness in India Kindness in Australia
