Institute Offers Online Courses for Citizens Wanting to Gain Skills in Creating a Better World
30 Mar 2010
A lot of people are passionate about creating a better world but lack the knowledge, tools and support to do so. More citizens are turning to workshops and online opportunities to help them connect with their deepest values and work for a humane world. One organization that offers help for activists wanting to gain skills in creating a better world is the Institute for Humane Education (IHE), which seeks to create a just, compassionate, sustainable world through training people to educate others about the pressing global issues of our time and through helping people become positive changemakers.
A Better World, A Meaningful Life
With A Better World, A Meaningful Life, participants learn to tap into their deepest values and help create a peaceful, just, compassionate, sustainable world while cultivating their own inner peace and joy. The course helps participants assess their lives, explore new information, do more good for themselves, other people, animals, and the environment, and find ways to create positive change. The next courses run May 3-28, 2010 and
September 6-October 1, 2010.

Teaching for a Positive Future
Teaching for a Positive Future is designed to train classroom teachers, community educators and homeschooling parents to effectively teach critical thinking about social justice, environmental ethics, animal protection, cultural issues, and enhance students' understanding that their choices make an impact on themselves, their local community, the fate of other people, other species, and the Earth. The course’s emphasis throughout on building critical thinking skills provides participants with a constructive approach for teaching about complex, controversial issues. The next course runs July 5-30, 2010.

Raising a Humane Child
Raising a Humane Child will help parents with children of any ages bring humane concepts and values to their families and manifest their vision for a better world. Parents learn to expand their strategies to help their children become more compassionate citizens and to make choices that demonstrate reverence, respect and responsibility for the environment, other species and all people. The next course runs October 4-29, 2010
