The Science of Mindful Cooperation: The Mindful Futures Network is joined by Organisational Psychologist Dr Paul Atkins, a member of the international design team implementing PROSOCIAL, an evidence-based approach for improving the efficacy of groups that are trying to work together to achieve common goals.

Ministers, Agency Heads and CEOs need their executives to REAP more sustainable solutions to deal with the major issues confronting citizens, communities and employees: Respond, Engage, Attend and Produce.

Thinking outside the box, researchers are finding new applications for mindfulness, empathy and compassion at a systems level right across Australia. The Mindful Futures Network is mapping and showcasing their projects and activities to inform, inspire and connect those working in the space.
