Montessori Group and Humanimal Trust have teamed up to inspire future generations, sharing and promoting a series of educational activities aimed at children aged 3-11 years, focusing on the similarities and differences between humans and other species.
Humanimal Trust drives collaboration between human and veterinary medicine so that all humans and animals benefit from equal and sustainable medical progress, which is based on learning from treating naturally occurring disease as an alternative to animal testing; a concept known as One Medicine.
As the global leader in Montessori Method education provision through training; quality assurance; support for families and practitioners, and social impact, Montessori Group promote child-centred education that involves child-led activities worldwide.
Leonor Stjepic, CEO of Montessori Group says,
‘Having seen what the team at Humanimal Trust are working to achieve through their education programme and ultimately through One Medicine, I could see there was some real synergy and a great opportunity to support the development of empathy and kindness in children. We’re very pleased with what we’ve produced and believe children will really enjoy these activities, learning and understanding more about the animals in the world around us every day.’
Research and Outreach Manager from Humanimal Trust, Dr Tracey King, adds:
‘Humanimal Trust are delighted to be working with the team at Montessori to inspire the next generation with the ethos of One Medicine – promoting understanding and empathy for other species and creating a two-way street between human and veterinary medicine. Through initiatives like this we can build a fairer and more ethical world through a community of compassion to ensure equal and sustainable medical progress for all humans and all animals.’
