FOUNDATIONS! Social and economic justice & Science into Practice #134 Sound environment zoo animals

FOUNDATIONS platform launch

We are committed to providing accessible and affordable continued professional development and learning opportunities for all in the animal care and conservation community. This includes everyone from students to professors and from trainee animal care staff to CEOs: we aim to provide content that suits a wide range of people from a wide range of backgrounds, no matter how much experience you have.

That’s why we are developing and launching a brand-new platform as part of our interconnected learning experience through the AnimalConcepts membership: FOUNDATIONS!

Our new Foundations platform, bringing us up to 4 interconnected platforms, is designed to be a starting point for those who are new to the platform, need a refresher on how to use our library, or are looking for basic introductory information on the many concepts we cover across our three animal, human, and planetary wellbeing platforms.

As with all resources on all our platforms, these resources are designed to be used at any time, anywhere, when you need them.

Resources you might find on our new Foundations pod include:

  • Guides on how to navigate our platforms and make the most of your membership
  • Basic information for using the platforms including terminology and what symbols mean
  • Introductions to a variety of animal, human, and planetary wellbeing topics

Our jargon-free introductory resources will help you to learn and understand the information available not only on our platform but will be broadly useful in practice at your workplace or at home, with useful glossaries, illustrations, practical exercises, and more.

We hope that the Foundations pod will be useful to all current and future users of our platforms and we will be continuing to add and update resources to the library throughout the year. Shall we see you online soon? Join us today by clicking HERE

This month on the Planetary wellbeing platform we will focus on what is valued in the third pillar of the Earth Charter: social and economic justice. This principle states different goals such as eradicate poverty as an ethical, social, and environmental imperative, or ensure that economic activities and institutions at all levels promote human development in an equitable and sustainable manner.

On this platform we not only talk about common good in human interactions or it is only human beings that need to thrive, but we expand it to all other animals and the living world.
