One of AIA’s objectives is to provide education on the compassionate treatment of animals by drawing from the wealth of wisdom of the faiths of its member organisations.
Published Materials & Media
It achieves this through publishing articles on the website and in its magazine, Animal Spirit. It also delivers education through other media, such as webinars. We share faith-based books and videos and audios on animal welfare.
Working with Others
AIA also works in collaboration with other organisations to deliver faith based education.
AIA is working with RE Today, the organisation which produces material for religious education syllabuses internationally. With 10,000 teacher readers, who potentially reach 300,000 pupils, RE Today has extensive outreach.
RE Today is committed to the teaching of the major world faiths and also non-religious worldviews in Religious Education, and to an accurate and fair representation of their beliefs, values and practices in all of their teaching materials. They work in the UK and internationally to give children a broad and balanced education to support them in the world they live in, through the teaching of high-quality RE in schools. They support teachers in all types of schools: primary, secondary, middle, first, independent, through academies, free, grammar, community, MATs, schools with a religious character and more. Further details can be found on their website.
AIA is helping in the production of teaching materials on ethical veganism and has contributed an article on ‘Justice: Extending the Golden Rule to Animals’ to their summer 2021 edition on Justice and Religions. There is also be a link to the AIA website in the RE Today resources website.
