How can digital tools help us to spread positivity, promote kindness and demonstrate care for others?


  • Be a positive leader - set an example for others that reflects optimism, positivity and caring

  • Think beyond the “like” button - express gratitude and celebrate the good around us by sharing examples of accomplishments of self and others

  • Show compassion for others, especially those people who might be marginalized or victimized

  • Steer clear of the drama - foster healthy relationships with peers and manage conflict peacefully and with maturity

  • Celebrate diversity in our local and global communities

  • Leave a positive mark on the world - create a digital footprint that represents your best foot forward
