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,
