As part of his recent visit to Austria, Nipun Mehta, founder of Service Space was hosted by a number of prestigious institutions, like the University of Vienna and the Vienna University of Business and Economics.
Nipun’s keynote on “Cultivating Compassion Quotient” introduced the concept of bringing kindness and compassion to schools at the Symposium “Pädagogik der Achtsamkeit”. Organised by Karlheinz Valtl and his department at the “Zentrum für Lehrer*innenbildung” at Vienna University, this 9th symposium seeks to make Mindfulness part of teacher training.
At the WU Executive Academy of the Wirtschaftsuniversität Wien, Nipun spoke on „Business & Kindness” and showed the existence of multiple forms of capital. The packed hall listened to how nature, attention, time, compassion, knowledge, culture and community to name a few, are forms that can be used to express gratitude. New forms of inspiring purpose? How about a culture of giving which leads to a culture of gratitude? Thanks to Christina Knopf of the WU Executive Academy and Univ.Prof. Michael Müller-Camen for sponsoring this event.
A truly inspiring visit. Honoured to have added to the ripples.
