Our Lesson Plans

All our lesson plans are underpinned by the FIVE FREEDOMS FOR ANIMALS as endorsed by the
World Organization for Animal Health (WOAH)

Boy with Chick

The world is redefining its relationship with animals, moving away from domination and exploitation towards respect for their immense sentience.

Resources

Our education system needs change, for us… and the rest of earth’s inhabitants too! 

A different outcome depends on teaching for a different outcome.

Design Book

Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. 

If we do not do something to prevent it, Africa's animals, and the places in which they live, will be lost to our world, and her children, forever.

NATURE-BASED EDUCATION

Our Lesson Plans meet the call by UN Secretary-General António Guterres, to everyone, everywhere, to make peace with nature.

" Our war on Nature has left the planet broken. Nature is striking back with growing force and fury. Making peace with nature is the defining task of the 21st century. 

It must be the top, top priority for everyone, everywhere." 

EMPOWERIng LEARNERS

To hasten the repair and restoration of our world, it is imperative our youngsters get involved. To achieve this, they need to know more! Much more!

They need to know why and how!

They need our online Lesson Plans.

 

Our children will begin to understand António Guterres' call to action through the UN's One Health concept, recognising that human health, animal health and environmental health are inextricably interconnected, with each dependent on the other.

 

This concept is endorsed by the

World Health Organisation (WHO),

the UN's Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO),

and the World Organisation for Animal Health (WOAH).

Additionally...

all lesson plans support the South African Constitutional Court’s historic judgment in 2016, noting that…

Animals have intrinsic value

as individuals

 

 

Animals are sentient beings

capable of suffering and

experiencing pain

Guardianship of the interests of animals reflects constitutional values and the interests of society at large

 

Animal protection safeguards the moral status of humans and the degeneration of human values
