#AnimalsMatter

General Assembly Melbourne

A$10.00

#ANIMALSMATTER is our 2019 SIN Re-Launch event, where we are going to deep dive into animal welfare via a broad range of perspectives. As always with our events, we don't want to just talk about the problems - we want to discuss the solutions! This is why we are bringing you an expert lineup of speakers to share their stories, initiatives and solutions to some of the various problems animals face - from domestic animals who risk execution when they are missing for more than 3 days, to the marine life that are suffering in our oceans, and the part that animal agriculture has to play in animal welfare. Our network does not have any specific alignment towards veganism or animal agriculture, but instead seeks to provide a forum for thoughtful, objective and respectful discourse around how we can collectively enhance the welfare of humans, animals, and the environment.

Vickie and her team have a goal to see the end of the killing of Australia’s homeless pets. Vickie is bringing to our attention some serious issues that currently exist within the Victorian Pound System, where animals can be put down after only 3 days, despite extremely poor management of the data collected from a pets micro-chip. Vickie will share the way that she and her team are aiming to address those issues moving forward by harnessing technology, as well as how you may be able to help simply by using your critical thinking and problem solving skills! Sam Trethewey, Founder of the Tasmanian Agriculture Company Sam is the Managing Director Tasmanian Agricultural Company and is from a farm production, agribusiness and agri-technology background. Sam is aiming to bring a more controversial view point to this conversation, as he introduces his startup, the largest grass fed wagyu beef in Australia and the first carbon positive beef brand in the world. Sam’s organisation also believe that animals matter. As such, Sam will talk about how his company are setting out to tackle some specific issues within traditional animal agriculture practices, as well as making a positive environmental impact and why it is important that people pay attention to animal welfare within animal agri - since the industry is definitely not going away! Kate Parker, Australia/NZ Coordinator at Sea Shepherd Kate is an environmental activist and is a driving force within Sea Shepherd, the world's leading direct action ocean conservation organisation. Sea Shepherd are stepping in to address the fact that human activity is devastating ocean ecosystems, including noise from human activities causing problems for ocean wildlife, mining which can destroy habitat as well as risking pollution that can kill wildlife, not to mention the 9 million tons of plastic that enters the ocean almost every year and... climate change~ Warmer water can absorb more CO2 from the air, and this makes the ocean more acidic than ever before. We need to know how to act on this - fast. MC for the night: Joel Hanna, co-founder of Big Little Brush, who is into social impact, Biz Tech, SAAS, and being a legend. **By submitting your email address for this particular event, you agree to receive updates about news, programs, and special events from our venue partner General Assembly.
