    Animal Protection awareness in education settings

      On July 4, 2012 the EU announced the ‘European Parliament resolution on the establishment of an EU legal framework for the protection of pets and stray animals’ calling on the Commission to put forward an EU legal framework for the protection of stray animals, including ( among other points) information and educational programmes in adults and other settings.

      European Convention for the Protection of Pet Animals says that there is a need to develop educational programmes and increase awareness of animal welfare and protection.
      The training we offer will address the need mentioned above and will focus on humane education as an essential aspect of personal growth.
      The training explains the consequences of irresponsible behavior and encourages people to see the value of all living things.
