What is Humane Education?
Humane education is about learning to respect life in our homes, communities and the environment. It encourages kindness and empathy for both human and nonhuman animals, and promotes understanding of our many diverse habitats. Most importantly, humane education strives to establish a sense of responsibility, making the world a better, more humane place.
The Need for Humane Education
Thousands of unwanted pets are euthanized every month. Animal cruelty is increasing, often perpetuated by young people. Violence and bullying in our schools is a serious problem. Humane Education programs address these issues, and stimulates critical thinking about solutions.
GCHE team members have volunteered for many years in Humane Education, Character Education, and Animal Protection. Their cumulative experience leads them to the belief that Humane Education. is a critical need in our communities.
