Leadership and Activism, Learning at its Best

World in Conversation Project

Since my TEDx talk was released, I have been receiving lots of emails from people wanting to learn how to implement the ideas I shared. I’ve also been hearing from humane educators and groups doing fantastic work across the globe. For my next several blog posts, I wanted to share some of their great work.

In a recent blog post about Sam Richards’ outstanding TEDx talk on empathy, I talked about the ways in which Richards so masterfully modeled the elements of humane education. Sam Richards is also the co-director of a fabulous humane education program at Pennsylvania State University – the World in Conversation Project – which provides a facilitated forum for important discussions around race. Check it out.

For a better world through education,

Author of Most Good, Least Harm, The Power and Promise of Humane Education, Claude and Medea, and Above All, Be Kind

About zoeweil

I'm the co-founder and President of the Institute for Humane Education (IHE). IHE works to create a world in which we all live humanely, sustainably, and peaceably. We do this by training people to be humane educators who teach about the pressing issues of our time and inspire people to work for change while making healthy, humane, and restorative choices in their daily lives. We also work to advance the field of humane education, and to provide tools and inspiration to people everywhere so that they can live examined, meaningful lives. I'm also a writer. So far I've written six books and several articles.
