Theme ‘Technology and welfare: a happy partnership?’
The 2020 theme will look at how technological advances are influencing our ability to improve animal welfare in a variety of different areas.
Sessions include two big debates:
- Innovation and overtreatment – does the desire to innovate compromise companion animal welfare?
- Farming, sustainability and welfare – what are the interactions between farming methods, production systems, sustainability and welfare?
And Q&A sessions:
- How might changing the interpretation of ‘under our care’ impact animal welfare?
- What are we doing to improve welfare: updates on AWF funded research.
