WORKING ANIMALS: EMPOWERING SUSTAINABLE GROWTH
AN ESTIMATED 200 MILLION WORKING ANIMALS ARE ESSENTIAL TO THE LIVELIHOODS OF MANY COMMUNITIES AROUND THE WORLD; THEY ARE OFTEN KEY TO BRINGING SUSTAINABLE GROWTH TO THOSE COMMUNITIES, WITH THE ABILITY TO TRANSPORT GOODS, COLLECT WATER AND WORK FOR A SOURCE OF INCOME.
The SDGs can be achieved through many cost effective simple solutions, the welfare of working animals is one of them. Simple interventions can empower owners to keep their working animals healthy and ensure their continued productive benefit.
Our event will bring speakers to showcase how working animals play a crucial role in achieving the Sustainable Development goals. Joe Collins, Chair of Eurogroup for Animals’ Equines Working Group , will introduce the presentations and lead discussion during an interactive question and answer session.
