Goldie Hawn describes the work of the Hawn Foundation on Giving, a show profiling innovative philanthropists. The Hawn Foundation is dedicated to equipping children with the social and emotional skills they need to lead smarter, healthier, and happier lives. The Hawn Foundation, in collaboration with neuroscientists, behavioral psychologists, educators, and leading researchers in the field of social and emotional learning, has developed MindUP™, an evidenced based curriculum for elementary and middle school children.

Research studies have shown that children who participate in MindUP™ not only learn more effectively, they also display more eagerness, confidence, empathy and joy. MindUP™ has also decreased the reported behavioral problems and aggression among students.

We need to rethink our whole approach to classroom education, integrating neuroscience with the latest social and emotional learning techniques. A peaceful, happy child is the first step toward a peaceful world.”
