At the 15th of March 2016 Eurogroup for Animals hosted, jointly with the cross political EP Intergroup for the Welfare and Conservation of Animals, a seminar at the European Parliament. The aim of the seminar was to discuss the future of animal welfare in the European Union by opening a constructive dialogue on the results to be generated from the Joint Declaration on Animal Welfare initiated by the German, Danish and Dutch Agricultural Ministers in December 2014.
When signing the Ministerial Declaration on Pig Welfare, launched in April 2015, the Swedish Agricultural Minister joined this animal welfare coalition as well. The perspectives for the EU to deliver in these declarations were reviewed.
The participants of this high level seminar were, amongst others, Minister van Dam (Minister for Agriculture, The Netherlands), Minister Bucht (Minister for Rural Affairs, Sweden) and Minister Weyts (Flemish Minister for Mobility, Public Works, the Vlaamse Rand, Tourism and Animal Welfare, Belgium). Also, two video messages were shown from Minister Schmidt (German Federal Minister of Food and Agriculture) and Vytenis Andriukaitis (EU Commissioner for Health and Food Safety) respectively.
