Attendance at the English-language conference “Animal Futures. Animal Rights in Academia and Activism” is free of charge and registration is now open to all. The conference centres on the future of human-animal relations in a rapidly changing world.
“This year’s conference features a number of leading international researchers from the field of Critical Animal Studies as well as exciting presentations from activists. The themes span from activism on the streets of Madrid to the image of veganism in the Estonian media outlets,” explained Kadri Aavik, one of the organisers and sociologist at Tallinn University.
Over the two days of the conference, more than 20 talks will be given by presenters from universities and organisations from the USA, Japan, Mexico, Finland, Sweden and a number of other European countries, including Estonia.
Anyone interested in animal-human relations as well as contemporary research and thought on animal protection and nature conservancy is warmly welcome. Participants can just listen in or ask questions and share their thoughts as well.
NGO Estonian Vegan Society shares evidence-based information on veganism and advocates for the interests of vegans to make their lives in Estonia easier.
NGO Loomus promotes the interests and rights of animals and represents their interests in societal debates. Loomus advocates first and foremost for animals who are being used in agriculture, including fishes, in entertainment, the beauty industry and fur production.
