Are you attending the 6th National G2Z Summit & workshops?
Leading national animal welfare program, Getting 2 Zero, delivers the 6th National G2Z Summit & Workshops on the Gold Coast from 14 – 19 September 2015.
The theme for this year’s Summit is Reaching out to the community.
Who should attend?
Attendance at this conference is essential for everyone involved in companion animal policy and practice -including those working in all levels of government, the not for profit welfare, shelter and rescue sector, and veterinary and pet industries.
More and more people are turning to the resources available in the community, such as local government and not for profits, for guidance on how to solve their companion animal management and welfare problems. What issues could be prevented or minimised by these resources working proactively within the community? This and many more topics relating to community welfare, animal welfare, and responsible pet ownership will be discussed at this event. Industry and sector leaders from Australia and overseas will lead sessions to explore innovative solutions to guide Australia’s approach to the management of companion animals now and into the future while providing insights on how the challenges are being met elsewhere.
Who will be there?
Held every two years, this sixth Summit will attract more than 200 delegates from the Australasian region. Each Summit has built on the success of the previous meeting and is now an industry leading, unique and significant forum for the exchange of ideas and solutions to lead Australia’s approach to saving the lives of companion animals into the future.
International expert speakers include:
Coordinator, Nell Thompson, says “The Summit provides a rare opportunity to tap into the wealth of knowledge and experience these international experts are bringing to Australia. In addition, there is great line up of local speakers presenting on a diverse array of issues. There are no other events like this in the Australasian region and G2Z is proud to deliver an economically viable professional development and networking experience that can facilitate best practice outcomes for abandoned pets around the country.”
G2Z is a national program aimed at preventing the unnecessary euthanasia of thousands of unwanted pets each year by providing strategies, support and resources to those involved in animal management and welfare.
