5 CLASSROOM PRESENTATIONS
ECP offers five engaging, interactive presentations that encourage participation and critical thinking. Using age-appropriate videos, activities and open-ended questions we challenge students to identify widespread assumptions about human health, the environment and the use of animals.
By providing only current, mainstream research and information about these issues, we give students legitimate facts that inform their food choices in a non-judgmental, honest and respectful way. Our goal is for students to learn about and consider food choices that improve their health, benefit the environment and consider animals with compassion.
A healthy, sustainable and more compassionate world will require thoughtful, critical thinkers. Communities have the tools to solve global problems. The Educated Choices Program is dedicated to inspiring others to realize the importance and responsibility of being informed and to understand the power and influence they wield to make the world a better place through their food choices. In understanding the realities behind these choices and the many benefits of healthy eating, people can make informed, responsible and compassionate decisions for themselves and other beings.
Rather than telling participants what to think or feel, ECP educators help them find answers for themselves. We encourage our audience members to think about their own experiences and examine their choices anew through an informed lens. Through respectful, non-judgmental and open dialogue, attendees are encouraged to choose a path that accords with their own values and beliefs.
Our educators are exceptionally trained and teach throughout the US and Canada, bringing our free presentations directly to communities. We explore the agricultural systems and healthy lifestyles that help prevent disease, preserve and protect our resources and provide alternatives to ensure the compassionate treatment of animals.
