"I enjoyed the experience immensely and have been motivated to think
hard about how to incorporate these approaches as a teacher and a
citizen." - Sendhil Revuluri, Chicago
"This should be part of every program charged with educating future
educators! In all the education courses I've taken... this has been
the most useful and inspiring." - Julie Thompson, Colorado
"I'm grateful for this experience. It has inspired me to keep
educating myself and others. I will use what I learned here for the
rest of my life. Thank you." - Dan Layman, Maryland
Sowing Seeds is an intensive, two-day training designed to help
participants effectively and creatively teach about the most important
issues of our time. The workshop is designed for educators, animal,
environmental and human rights activists, and anyone wishing to
develop their teaching and communication abilities to work for
positive social change. Participants will spend each day learning how
to stimulate critical thinking and offer learning activities that
inspire students to make positive choices that benefit themselves,
other people, other species and the Earth. Educators may elect to
integrate humane education into their existing curriculum and can also
develop elective humane education courses at their schools. Activists
can integrate the skills learned to more effectively educate others
about issues important to them or create a humane education program in
their local community.
Sliding scale registration fee: $49.00 - $179.00
