Animal Welfare – A necessity for human survival or only a concern for the privileged?

In a time of social, societal and economic upheaval, how appropriate is concern for the welfare of animals? Both today and in the future, how much attention do we want to give, can we give, must we give to animal welfare?

At the first International Animal Welfare Summit, experts from the economic, political and scientific arenas will discuss how current challenges can be transformed into opportunities.
