The World Becomes What We Teach.
Solutionary: Noun: A solutionary is able to identify inhumane and unsustainable systems, then develop solutions that are healthy and just for people, animals, and the environment. Conscious of their personal impact, solutionaries also endeavor to do the most good and least harm through the choices they make. Adjective: Characterized by addressing problems in a strategic, comprehensive way that does not harm one group by helping another.
MOGO, short for “most good,” is a quick way of thinking about the fundamental question that underlies humane education: How can each of us, through our daily choices, work, communities, and volunteerism do the most good and the least harm to ourselves, other people, animals, and the environment?
To ensure that people have the skills and experiences to be solutionaries for a more just, humane, and healthy world, humane educators must enable others to:
by preparing them to be enthusiastic and effective researchers who are able to obtain accurate information about interconnected global challenges and discern fact from opinion and conjecture.
by developing their critical-, creative-, strategic-, and systems-thinking skills.
by fostering wonder and appreciation for the natural world; empathy for people and animals; and a commitment to doing the most good and least harm.
by providing opportunities to collaboratively engage in problem-solving; implement ideas; and assess and improve upon them.
