For the links to all the talks at First International Conference on Human Behaviour Change for Animal Welfare - click here.

There will be a series of more focused workshops in the UK throughout 2017 and onwards; possibly in other countries through collaborations. We are partnering with Asia For Animals (AFA) - in 2017 their conference will have the theme of Human Behaviour Change for Animal Welfare and Suzanne is a key member of the organising committee. This will bring HBCAW to a different region of the world in 2017 and then possibly to the USA in 2019. 

We will update the mailing list as dates are finalised and post here in due course.
