Eurogroup for Animals, in partnership with the International Coalition for Working Equids, are pleased to invite you to join us on 28 September as we present an interactive panel event to showcase the role working animals play in helping achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.
The event is part of European Sustainable Development Week 2021. Joe Collins, Chair of Eurogroup for Animals’ Equines Working Group, will introduce the presentations and lead discussion during an interactive question and answer session.
An estimated 200 million working animals are essential to the livelihoods of many communities around the world; they are often key to bringing sustainable growth to those communities, with the ability to transport goods, collect water and work for a source of income. The Sustainable Development Goals can be achieved through many cost effective simple solutions, the welfare of working animals is one of them.
Simple interventions can empower owners to keep their working animals healthy and ensure their continued productive benefit.
