If you are an educator passionate about building a just and sustainable world through education, join us for a summer institute at our facility on the beautiful coast of Maine!
The Institute for Humane Education is offering a dynamic, hands-on summer institute designed to deepen your understanding of the interconnected issues of environmental preservation, animal protection, human rights, and media & culture, and teach you how to inspire students to be leaders for a sustainable world. Our summer institute will challenge you to think creatively and critically about integrating global issues into your classrooms and communities, preparing you to enliven your teaching and add even greater depth and relevancy to your curricula - regardless of the grade you teach, the educational setting, or the subject areas in which you specialize.
Develop new ideas and practice new skills with other committed educators who share your enthusiasm for inspiring young people to hope and action. Our Summer Institute is at our beautiful headquarters, just a 40-minute drive to Mount Desert Island, home of Acadia National Park. Earn four (4) Continuing Education Units (CEUs) through the University of Maine (40 contact hours). Space is limited!
