Taking responsibility

In this activity, young people are asked what society would expect them to do if they came across animals that were not theirs, but were obviously suffering.

Young people will develop:

  • the understanding that society expects us to care for and help not only our own animals, but also any that do not belong to us, or any wild animals that are in need
     
  • knowledge about what to do in situations similar to those in the scenarios
     
  • empathy with wild and farm animals.


Number of participants: You can run these activities with just one person or in a small group.


How long it will take: The activity will take about 15 to 30 minutes.
