Are you a school teacher, and would you like to include animal welfare in your lesson planning?

World Animal Protection’s First Concepts in Animal Welfare programme worked with ministries of education, teacher training institutes and qualified teachers to embed animal welfare education within everyday teaching practice.  If you want to become part of the movement and join the action, then collaborate with us.

Although animal welfare is a complex scientific discipline, you don’t have to be an academic expert to enthuse children and young people, and to get them to apply the basic theory of the Five Freedoms to animals in their care. If you know your pupils would love to learn about animal welfare, and you would love to teach it, then download our teacher’s pack to discover how you can include the theories and principles into your teaching curriculum and lesson plans, and join the growing community of animal welfare teachers and educators worldwide.

We’d love to hear from you so please get in touch using the form on this page. Tell us how you and your pupils are getting on, share some animal welfare teaching resources that you have created, or simply get your hands on a hard copy of some of our teaching resources: Bears of the World (WSPA), Common Ground: Education for Sustainable Development (World Animal Protection), and Vet Files (WSPA) for insight into being an animal welfare vet.
