Humane Education highlights the deep interconnection between human rights, animal protection, environmental stewardship, and media
literacy. This teaching methodology provides practical, applied tools to help all types of educators build empathy and encourage kind acts from learners. Join us to examine connections of language and thought to enhance benefits of animal assisted interventions with humane education that shape our ability to expand compassion in ourselves and others. We will discuss ethical considerations and best practices that benefit animals and humans alike.
