People Feel Better – But What About Animals?

Date: 25/01/2024

Newcastle University







Thursday 25th January – 10am to 3pm


This workshop brings together specialists in social science, animal and behavioural science, farming and policy, to discuss the statement:

‘People feel better, but what about animals?’

Through debate, the session hopes to achieve consensus around often fragmented views of farm animal welfare. The aim is a more collaborative, informed and robust approach to policy development, ensuring improved animal welfare through different lenses, now and in future. The day will include short invited pitches, a panel discussion, and the identification of both collaborative ways of working and future priorities.

Speakers and panelists include:

Martin Barker (Duynie Feed)

Heather Browning (University of Southampton)

Gemma Charlton (Harper Adams University)

Grace O’Gorman (CIEL)

Lewis Holloway (University of Hull)

Amy Jackson (Oxtale Communications)

Amelie Lagrand (CIWF)

Jonathan Statham (Animal Health and Welfare Board for England)

Andrew Voas (Scottish Government)

Andrew Whiston (RASTECH)
