JMICAWE is the academic partner for this exciting new initiative in September.  Read what conference organiser Suzanne Rogers has to say about it:-

"This international conference will be the first in a field that is rapidly becoming recognized as a key component in animal welfare work. Modern practice is moving away from the traditional approach of focussing on service provision (e.g. veterinary care, training, or hands-on assistance) or raising awareness and towards those activities as part of a more human-centered approach to generate change that lasts.

The conference will include presentations on human behaviour change theory from key speakers and submitted presentations and case studies selected from peer-reviewed abstracts.   Early bird tickets are available before 30th June 2016.

The aims of the conference are:

·         To highlight the importance of human behaviour change (HBC) in animal welfare work.
·         To educate on core elements of HBC theory through key presentations from leading experts.
·         To facilitate sharing of information and experiences of HBC for animal welfare. 
·         To encourage embedding of HBC in inter-sectoral collaboration, innovation and policy. 
·         To explore novel methods for the monitoring and evaluation of HBC approaches and provide evidence-based information illustrating its value."
