Educating for a Just, Peaceful & Sustainable Future is a groundbreaking opportunity to discover your role in comprehensive humane education — and lead global change. If you are a teacher, educational administrator, changemaker, policymaker, humane educator and/or concerned citizen, please join us Saturday, Sept. 21, for an exciting and transformative day.

You will gain new skills to communicate and teach others about the most important issues of our time, meet and network with people in your field, explore the purpose of education, and witness extraordinary examples of relevant education for our time.

The conference features keynotes from Jane Goodall, Arun Gandhi, and Zoe Weil, hands-on humane education workshops and an International Day of Peace parade.

Presented by Humane Education Advocates Reaching Teachers (HEART), the Institute for Humane Education (IHE) and Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots, this conference features a dynamic program of speakers including Jane Goodall, DBE, UN Messenger of Peace and founder of the Jane Goodall Institute; Arun Gandhi, grandson of Mahatma Gandhi and founder of the Gandhi Worldwide Education Institute; Zoe Weil, president of the Institute for Humane Education; and many other acclaimed speakers.

The conference also includes applied humane education workshops and a parade in honor of the U.N. International Day of Peace, when the United Nations calls upon all nations and people to cease hostilities for 24 hours and to offer education and public awareness about issues related to peacemaking. The theme for this year’s observance is “Education for Peace.” Our humane education conference will offer information, tools and motivation to people wishing to help build a peaceful world for all people and all species through education.

The conference will be hosted by New York University’s Animal Studies Initiative in the NYU Global Center for Academic and Spiritual Life. The conference welcomes educators, changemakers, students and concerned citizens from across the United States and abroad. Early general registration is $75 through Aug. 1, 2013, and $95 thereafter. Student registration is $25 through Aug. 1, 2013, and $35 thereafter. If the cost prevents a potential participant from registering, an adjusted rate may be considered on a sliding scale.
