This 8 minute film explores the neuroscience and social science of character -- that we are each a unique combination of character strengths like grit, gratitude, courage, curiosity, optimism, and creativity, and that the key to a successful, meaningful, and happy life is to develop and deepen these strengths in ourselves and in others.
The Science of Character was the centerpiece of our annual Global Character Day, which has engaged millions in this conversation, with over 200,000 events in 138 countries its last year.
When we launched The Science of Character, we offered free customized versions of the film to nonprofits around the globe. We'd put their logo and their message at the end, and it would look like it was their film, that they could use in so many different ways (fundraising, kicking off an event, social). We made thousands of these free films for amazing organizations. We no longer have the grant to do these for free, but we do still make them -- for companies, organizations, and schools. Email Sawyer.
