In order to be able to deal with the challenges of the Anthropocene, and for reasons of justice, humans have to learn to live differently with other animals. Multispecies education, in which animals of different species learn from and with one another, is an important part of this project. The voices of animals and children should be at the front of developing new practices and institutions, for epistemological and democratic reasons. This essay sketches how we can develop new practices of multispecies education, and reflects on the questions at stake with a group of children.
