In our modern Western society, it's impossible to do without screens. Every day, we're exposed to them via our computers, phones, games consoles and tablets.

    How to teach empathy at school?

    From the start of the school year in September 2024, pupils in France will benefit from enhanced teaching of psychosocial skills (CPS) and empathy classes, an initiative promoted by Gabriel Attal during his tenure as Minister of Education. This measure aims to respond to a number of contemporary issues affecting young people, including bullying.
