posted May 15, 2013, 8:10 PM by Shawn Sweeney   [ updated Jul 11, 2013, 12:34 PM by Humane Edconf ]
UPDATE: DEADLINE EXTENDED TO AUGUST 1, 2013.

During the Humane Education in Action session of the conference we have two exciting opportunities for humane educators to share their work. We are looking for innovative, successful, replicable examples of humane education to inform, inspire and provide new ideas and tools for attendees. We invite you to take us into your world!

Each opportunity requires a submission. They are:

OPTION 1 - MAKE A PITCH TO BE A “LIGHTNING” PRESENTER AT THE CONFERENCE
Submit a pitch to be a presenter through Google Hangout or video. Up to 6 people will be selected to make 4 to 6 minute lightning-style presentations at the conference. Confirmed presenters must be registered attendees (early-bird discount extended) and cover their own travel and accommodation expenses. In your submission you should follow this format:
  1. Introduce yourself to us! Tell us who you are, where you are, and what your passion is.
  2. Inspire us! Make your pitch for what you want to present at the conference.

There are two ways to make a pitch:
  1. Share your idea via a Google+ hangout with the conference organizing committee! Over the coming weeks we have scheduled 15 minute Google+ Hangout slots where individuals can hop on a hangout with someone from the conference organizing committee and give their pitch in real time. You just need a webcam and be able to get on a Google+ hangout (detailed instructions will be supplied when you schedule an appointment).

  2. Follow the instructions below (Option 2) for sending in a short video following the format requirements above.
OPTION 2 - SUBMIT A VIDEO TO BE PART OF THE CONFERENCE SHORT FILM 
If you are doing exciting work in humane education, we invite you to submit a video to be part of a short film sharing the work of innovative humane educators from around the world. It will be screened during the Humane Education in Action session of the conference. The selection committee will be looking for the most dynamic and compelling submissions. Videos are limited to 5 minutes so keep your responses short, energetic and fun. All submissions should follow this format:
  1. Introduce yourself to us! Tell us who you are, where you are, and what your passion is.
  2. Inspire us! What inspires you in your work? 
  3. Show us! Take us on a short (2-3 minutes) tour of your humane education work. SHOW us what you do.
  4. Call us to action! What is your vision for the future of humane education? What can others do to help?
Videos may be edited as necessary to fit within the final production format. By submitting a video, you agree to allow Educating for a Just, Peaceful & Sustainable Future to show your video at the conference, online and future events. If you are filming other people in your video, make sure to get them to sign release forms (sample attached). Here are the directions and details on how to submit your video:
