UP #03: The Power and Promise of Humane Education to Ignite the Power of Critical Thought with Zoe Weil

Today, we chat with co-founder and president of the Institute for Humane Education, the feisty, funny and fabulous, Zoe Weil.

Zoe is a pioneer and passionate crusader in the humane education movement – a movement which works to create a humane, peaceful, healthy and just world for all people, animals, and the environment through education.

She created IHE’s M.Ed., M.A. and graduate certificate programs, as well as IHE’s acclaimed humane education and MOGO (most good) workshops and online courses.

She’s a 6 time author with inspiring books including the Nautilus Silver Medal-winner “Most Good, Least Harm: A Simple Principle for a Better World and Meaningful Life”. She’s also written many articles on humane education and humane living and has been interviewed by numerous radio and television stations and media outlets such as

Zoe is a tireless speaker at universities, conferences, schools and communities across North America and she’s also an inspiring TEDx speaker. Her 2010 TEDx talk “The World Becomes what you teach” became one of the 50 top-rated of more than 12,000 TEDx talks that year. And since then she’s given 3 more amazing TEDx talks.

And, if that’s not enough, in 2012, Zoe premiered her 1-woman show “My Ongoing Problems with Kindness: Confessions of a MOGO Girl” and now brings humane issues to communities through entertainment.

Have I mentioned yet that this tiny woman is an absolute ball of fire?

And that’s just the beginning. So sit back, enjoy the interview and allow Zoe to inspire you to think more critically, love more deeply and live as an exemplary ambassador for compassion.
