Power of One
Vancouver Humane Society
Leslie Fox, from the Vancouver Humane Society teaches youth to think critically about how their food choices affect the environment. Typically people see animal rights as separate from environmental and human rights issues. “This is a great opportunity to take animal issues and bridge them to all these other issues” says Fox.
In this segment, the Vancouver Humane Society’s Education Program for Secondary Schools features the new Power of One Program that provides workshops and training materials for secondary school teachers. With a $35,000 grant from Vancouver Foundation the Power of One aims to reduce teen violence by taking a holistic approach to molding teenagers into global citizens.
