As director of One Welfare CIC, it is my pleasure to invite you to the third One Welfare World Conference, which as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, will be held virtually on the 15th and 16th September 2021.
The concept of One Welfare describes the interrelationships between animal welfare, human wellbeing and the physical and social environment. The One Welfare Framework comprises five sections which are in-tended to capture the different multidimensional aspects of the concept. This conference centres around the five One Welfare Framework Sections and includes a special section on One Welfare and COVID-19.
During the conference, Global experts in animal welfare, human wellbeing and the environment will present discuss their latest experiences and research in the area of One Welfare.
The One Welfare World Conference’s goal is to bring together a multidisciplinary group of professionals working on animal welfare, human wellbeing and the environment; Professionals who are passionate about how these elements and their varied skills complement each other in their daily activities; Professionals who would like to share their knowledge and experiences as well as learn from the latest research in the area.
Joining up to discuss scientific research and evidence is essential to showcase the benefits of the One Welfare approach in a tangible manner, serving to other researchers, industry or policy makers in their work. This helps to build up a robust evidence base around One Welfare and adoption of the concept globally to help make the world a better place.
