Well-being Series: Altruism
Altruism (also know as other-centric) refers to a strong motivation towards increasing another person’s welfare. It is a contrast against egoism (self-centric). Darwin’s “survival of the fittest” postulates self-centredness as an innate quality that we all have to ensure our survivability. However, other-centric individuals that work together as a group triumphs over other competing groups.
Many research studies suggest that living a life for the betterment of others also increases our own well-being. This theme will explore what altruism is and how to cultivate a life for the betterment of others.
Attendance of this webinar is FREE.
This session is part of our on-going Well-being Series organised by Happiness Initiative in partnership with National Youth Council.
