ACTAsia’s impact on animals
- ACTAsia’s children’s education programme, Caring for Life, helps primary school children develop compassion and a sense of active responsibility for animals and increases awareness and understanding of the sentience of animals and the interconnectivity of all living things.
- Through our extensive Vets for Change Veterinary Training programme, we educate vets across Asia in best practice. ACTAsia also promotes responsible pet ownership through education.
- ACTAsia actively campaigns to put an end to factory farming. This practice is harmful and cruel to animals and increases the spread of zoonoses.
- ACTAsia actively campaigns for a ban on fur in the fashion industry. Each year we hold a sustainable, fur-free fashion show in China, advocating compassionate alternatives to real fur.
ACTAsia’s impact on people
- ACTAsia’s Caring for Life education programmes for children, consumers and professionals are helping to promote humane behaviour towards humans, animals and the environment by providing educational programmes for schools and universities to encourage principles of compassion and empathy, care and respect, animal sentience and civic responsibility.
- ACTAsia also provides advice, assistance, training and support to members of the public and organisations on the subjects of human, animal and environmental welfare.
- ACTAsia is helping to reduce cases of rabies. Rabies is on the rise in China. Whilst this lethal disease seems a far cry from our everyday lives – it is very much an issue for parts of China.
ACTAsia’s impact on the environment
- ACTAsia’s CFL education programme for children actively works to raise awareness surrounding the threats to our planet – notably climate change, pollution, and deforestation. Educating and inspiring the next generation about the environment, biodiversity, and the need to consider sustainability is key to achieving lasting and meaningful change.
- ACTAsia campaigns for an end to fur farming. The feed and keeping of fur farmed animals are the two main contributing factors to climate change. Producing feed for the millions of animals kept for fur comes with a severe ecological footprint.
- ACTAsia promotes plant-based diets to help the environment. One of the most effective things an individual can do to lower their carbon footprint is to avoid animal
