TEDxBarcelonaSalon - animal welfare

About this event :

To survive we need protein, of course. Should we consume animal protein? Currently the largest source of protein are animals. But more and more people are switching to a vegetarian (or vegan) diet because they are concerned about animal welfare and the environmental impact of the food industry. In the European Community, animal welfare is highly regulated. Is this regulation sufficient or should it be improved? Should the situation of animals on farms improve? And if so, shouldn’t we be reducing our meat consumption, with the goal of downsizing farms for the good of the animals? Or are there other ways to improve animal welfare? To discuss these issues together, we have invited two experts in the field with two very different messages.

On the one hand we have invited Elisa Bianco. Elisa is responsible for the Food Business office in Spain and Italy at Compassion in World Farming. Compassion in World Farming aims to improve animal welfare. Elisa will propose a possible solution. On the other hand, we have invited Carlos Piñeiro. Carlos is a veterinarian, director at PigChamp and has been working in the world of livestock for more than twenty years. He will offer us his experience in the livestock sector and will explain the measures that can make livestock farms more sustainable and guarantee the care of livestock.

Elisa Bianco - Carlos Piñeiro

Each one will present us with their vision of the current situation and also proposals on how it should be improved. After the talks we will have the opportunity to delve into the subject. We will debate among all and with the speakers. We end the event with a networking session.
