Estonian animal rights organisations are holding their sixth international animal rights conference
Participation at the English-speaking conference "Animal Futures.Animal Rights in Academia and Activism" is free, and registration is now open to the public. The conference focuses on the future of human-animal relations in an ever-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 a sociologist at Tallinn University.
More than 20 talks will be given over the two days of the conference by presenters from universities and organisations in the United States, Japan, Mexico, Finland, Sweden, and a number of other European countries, including Estonia.
Anyone with an interest in animal-human relations, as well as current research and thought on animal protection and nature conservation, is invited to attend. Participants can simply listen in, ask questions, and share their thoughts.
