WEBINAR: Sustainable and Animal Friendly Food. Environmental Lunchtime Discussions

Sustainable food is on the agenda of the UN, nations, corporations and an increasing number of consumers. Yet, does sustainability include animal welfare? This week, Live Kleveland, lawyer and co-founder of the Norwegian Animal Protection Alliance will ask how modern food production can become more animal friendly.

The Norwegian Animal Protection Alliance works to change Norwegian agriculture to become more animal friendly. Meat consumption should be reduced, and consumers should have the possibility to choose food from animals with better welfare.

The Norwegian Animal Protection Alliance is a national foundation for animal welfare in Norway. We believe that no animal should have to suffer for financial gains, ignorance or tradition. The Norwegian Animal Protection Alliance helps those animals who need it the most, in intensive farming, the fur industry and in animal experimentation. The organisation has a staff of seventeen dedicated professionals, and is governed by a board of directors.
