On 6 June 2017, the EU Platform on Animal Welfare Inaugural Meeting will take place in Brussels.
The Platform brings together 75 member organisations both from the public and private sector and relevant international intergovernmental organisations and has selected a total of 40 members from academia, industry and NGOs, among which FOUR PAWS is part of and will be represented by our expert Adolfo Sansolini.
The discussions will focus on the priorities set by the Commission on animal welfare and will be based on shared views by the members on the prospect of future EU actions related to animal welfare.
The following points will be discussed:
- ‘How can the Platform contribute to better application and understanding of EU legislation on animal welfare?’ (Enforcement)
- ‘How the Platform can contribute to promote EU animal welfare standards globally?’ (animal welfare and trade).
- ‘Examples on how the Platform can facilitate the use of voluntary commitments and promote market value of animal welfare friendly products.’ (including animal welfare labelling).
