One Welfare Conference II
The CVE is honoured to be accepting the baton from Canada to host the second international One Welfare Conference in Sydney, Australia.
What is One Welfare?
One Welfare is a framework that recognises the inextricable links between
- Animal welfare
- Human wellbeing
- Environmental sustainability
It is a cross-disciplinary space promoting collaboration to address complex, 'wicked' problems to establish outcomes that benefit humans, animals and the environment. These include issues such as climate change, drought and water supply, animal hoarding, food security and nutrition, conservation and the changing human-animal interface.
This event is designed to gather national and international experts across animal welfare, human healthcare, conservationists and environmental scientists to learn from one another. By bringing together public and private stakeholders, including those from government, academic, non-profit organisations and industry, we can discuss research, best practices, models and policies that have succeeded – or not – in managing these complex problems.
This is an opportunity to:
- Create a unique, positive environmental for sharing of expert knowledge and establishing networks
- Share and troubleshoot solutions from across regions, states, and countries, in both private and public sectors
- Identify and analyse legislative barriers and brainstorm solutions
- To strengthen the international One Welfare network
This event is organised in collaboration with the ‘One Welfare’ project node of the Charles Perkins Centre
