Changing Human Behaviour

The Conference

For 15 years, the Asia for Animals conference has enabled Asia’s largest gatherings of animal professionals, advocates and scholars. The conference presents a unique opportunity to network, share experiences and learn from practical workshops and plenaries with leading experts. Always a dynamic and productive forum, the conference has given birth to countless new partnerships and new ideas for tackling some of the world’s greatest challenges in animal protection.

The 10th Asia for Animals conference will be held in Kathmandu, Nepal, from 27th to 29th November 2017 (with an optional field trip from 30th November to 2nd December).

Join us for three days of fascinating talks and interactive workshops, followed by an opportunity to visit Chitwan National Park, one of the last strongholds for endangered mammals such as the Bengal tiger and one-horned rhinoceros.

The Theme

The theme of the conference is "Changing Human Behaviour". The field of human behaviour change is rapidly becoming recognised as a key component in animal welfare work.

Modern practice is moving away from the traditional approach of service provision (e.g. veterinary care, training, or hands-on assistance) and raising awareness, towards human-centred approaches generating change that lasts. The conference will be an opportunity to share experience, knowledge and ideas on how this approach can deliver greater impact for the animals of Asia.

The conference is partnered with the Human Behaviour Change for Animal Welfare Community Resource.
