When: 15.03.2016 from 9:00 to 11:30

Where: EU Parliament + livestream (http://www.eurogroupforanimals.org/videos)

Organiser: The Seminar will be hosted by Eurogroup for Animals under the patronage of Janusz Wojciechowski MEP, President of the EP Intergroup for Animal Welfare and Conservation of Animals


The aim of the seminar is to open a constructive dialogue on the results to be generated from the Joint Declaration on Animal Welfare initiated by the German, Danish and Dutch Agricultural Ministers in December 2014.

By signing the Ministerial Declaration on Pig Welfare launched in April 2015, the Swedish Agricultural Minister joined the animal welfare coalition as well.

With the EU decision makers and civil society as the main audience we will look into what perspectives there are for the EU to deliver on the declaration.

The event will be hosted by the cross political EP Intergroup for the Welfare and Conservation of Animals supported by 110 MEPs from all EU Member States and Eurogroup for Animals who operates as the voice for animals and citizens at EU level.
