Information and education to the public
Welcome on the practical chapters of the website.
The bases of every progress on Animal Welfare and Animal Health is information and communication. The goal of a European culture of responsible dog ownership can only be reached by a systematic and common information and education strategy including all target groups from children up to professionals further education and training.
The European Commission is very active and started for a conference on 1-2 October 2010 a website on this topic www.animalwelfare-education.eu Here in this category you find several links to activities related to information, education and training, from school projects to trainings for professionals on international, national and EU level.
Please provide us with further projects if you miss them here.
The starting point of animal-welfare policy is the recognition that animals are sentient beings and should be treated in such a way that they do not suffer unnecessarily. It concerns the animals that are under human care.
