Educating for a Just, Peaceful and Sustainable Future, a comprehensive humane education conference, highlights the power and promise of humane education as a key to fostering a generation of solutionaries committed to environmental preservation, animal welfare and human rights.

“This conference comes at a time when we must create a paradigm shift in our approach to education. We must make a new system created to educate our students to be conscientious change-makers and problem solvers.”
-Zoe Weil, Institute for Humane Education
