The Humane Education Coalition is delighted to announce the launch of our new virtual speaker series, the Humane Summit! This three-day event brings together education professionals from around the world to learn, share, and connect about humane education. The Summit is held entirely online from February 5-7, 2019 and features unique speaker sessions and live panel discussions from more than 45 education experts.
Participants will learn new strategies and tools for introducing, incorporating, and enhancing education programs, and they'll discover opportunities for building cross-cultural connections and solving challenges. Speaker sessions will cover a wide range of topics, including animal protection issues, social-emotional learning, environmental ethics, social justice, and social work education. As an added benefit, all sessions and recorded panel discussions will be saved in the Summit for participants to view at their convenience. There are also special opportunities for participants, including the option to earn a certificate of completion from the University of Denver's Institute for Human-Animal Connection, entering to win an online course from the Academy of Prosocial Learning, and entering to win a box of humane-themed children's picture books from The Gryphon Press.
The Coalition strives to reduce barriers between our constituents and the tools they need to learn, teach, and thrive. We are thrilled to provide this unique speaker series with no mandatory fee for participants thanks to our generous sponsors, which makes the Summit an inclusive and accessible learning opportunity for educators worldwide.
The Humane Summit is open to anyone, anywhere in the world and is an ideal professional development opportunity for educators, program administrators, nonprofit employees and volunteers, social workers, therapists, parents, and global compassionate citizens. The only requirements to participate in the Summit are access to the Internet and a working knowledge of the English language, as that is the language used in all Summit activities. Registered participants will receive a link to access the Summit via email upon registration.
