Event – What could the EU and China do for Animals?
6 November 2020
Join us on Wednesday 18 November to discuss what the EU and China could do for Animals, and how this could also benefit public health and climate change.
In 2017, China’s Vice-Minister for Agriculture Yu Kangzhen indicated China’s willingness to work on comprehensive legislation on animal welfare.
Now that the European Commission has announced the long-awaited review of its animal welfare standards in the Farm to Fork strategy, it seems to be even more urgent to discuss what the EU and China could do for animals. Especially considering the vast challenges humanity is facing: the climate emergency, the spread of zoonoses, antimicrobial resistance, and their links to the way society deals with animals.
The two hours event, hosted by MEP Niels Fuglsang (S&D, DK), will bring together academics, Chinese and European stakeholders, NGOs, representatives of the European Commission and the European Parliament, as well as Member States, and will be the opportunity to launch the Eurogroup for Animals’ new report ‘What could the EU and China for Animals?’.
