Back to Kind

Get Back to Compassion, Community, & Conversations

As we face a world that is shaped by fear and everyday challenges, let’s get #BacktoKind.

Through the Roots & Shoots USA #BacktoKind campaign, we’re supporting our community of young change-makers, educators, adult mentors, parents, and individuals to reflect on what matters most and what our world needs most – compassion and kindness. For those struggling, it is kindness towards self and for those who are more fortunate, it is kindness towards others. For both, it is compassion, to build understanding, and respecting identities and experiences – this includes other species and this planet we call home.

Together, through our stories, resources like our Family Toolkit to create change-making community projects, our Compassionate Traits quiz, 1-Click Actions, projects in a box, our Peace Day Challenge, along with virtual events, activities and so much more, we’ll unlock ways to get “Back to Kind” and make the world a better place for all.
