Joint DCAW and NordCAW Animal Welfare Conference October 3+4 2017

Two day conference on Animal Welfare in Copenhagen on October 3 and 4 2017. Themes are consumer-driven animal welfare and animal based welfare indicators.

University of Copenhagen is, in collaboration with Danish Centre for Animal Welfare (DCAW) and the Nordic Network for Communicating Animal Welfare (NordCAW) arranging a two day conference on animal welfare.

Day 1 (October 3) – hosted by DCAW - will focus on how animal welfare is perceived by farmers and consumers as well as specific animal welfare schemes and initiatives both
from governments (Danish and German welfare labelling) and industry (Welfur). The way in which these schemes and initiatives may give added value to the product, as well as increased welfare will be addressed.

Day 2 (October 4)  - hosted by NordCAW - will mainly focus on the application of animal-based welfare indicators  in animal welfare assessment and if animal-based indicators can be implemented in legislation. Both practical and legal aspects will be covered, as well as the concerns of the citizens and consumers.
