Well-being Series: Why Helping Others, Helps Ourselves
Altruism is a term to contrast against egoism. Humans have the desire for self-preservation. Yet, Humans also have the capacity to care for others beyond self. In this webinar, we explore the ways and benefits of being other-centric. We try to understand how living for something beyond ourselves is a higher level of human progress.
Attendance of this webinar is FREE.
This session is part of our on-going Well-being Series Altruism organised by Happiness Initiative in partnership with National Youth Council.

P.S. The Zoom link for this webinar would be given to you automatically upon registration.
