Our sustainability Challenges: Animal Well-being, Health and Climate Change
EARTHwise Centre, Middlesex University, and the University of Mauritius have the pleasure to invite you to this unique talk by Prof Pim Martens, from Maastricht University.
TOPIC OF PRESENTATION – If we look at the many sustainability indicators that have been developed over the years, it is striking to see that animal and human health and wellbeing hardly plays a role. The reason that ‘health and ‘sustainability’ are not often mentioned together in one sentence is likely to be found in the fact that the sustainability debate has been hijacked in recent years by industry and governments. In this presentation, human-animal relationships will be linked to concepts and tools from sustainability science and some examples – climate change, biodiversity– will be discussed.
