animal welfare in the eu October 1, 2010

Posted by Bradley in : eu , trackback

There’s a conference today and tomorrow, and a new web game called Farmland, which I haven’t tried, but which is meant to teach kids that animals are sentient beings and:

which aims to help tomorrow’s citizens to make informed choices about the food they will be buying when they grow up.

From a quick look it doesn’t seem that the game is designed to promote vegetarianism, but to encourage looking after farm animals well until they become our food.

The Commission held a Big Competition of Drawing for Children 6-13 years old Animal Welfare is Freedom (note the euro-english). The theme of the Competition was “Making Animals Happy”. By coincidence, this week I read James Wright’s A Blessing for the first time.
