Right now, the European Commission is in the process of revising its animal protection policies.
This is very likely to be one of the most important opportunities for animal welfare progress on a legislative level that we have ever seen in the EU.
The next step in the process is based on this survey. We highly recommend watching the survey Tutorial Video while filling it out. Read more below.
Since this is a survey, you can look at the analysis of the final results as a popularity contest - you can directly measure how many people have filled in the survey with pro-animal welfare answers. We should therefore as individuals and organisations be very motivated to do our very best to engage our followers to complete the survey.
Note that even if your group is not operating within an EU member state, your participation is still very important - read more below.
This survey is addressing crucial topics, such as:
The deadline for completing the survey is 21st January 2022.
The EU is particularly interested in hearing from the public and we can help engage them in this important survey. Anima International has produced a simple toolkit in order to help organisations engage their followers. We have two main products that are designed to support this work:
We have developed a survey tutorial video based on how Eurogroup for Animals has answered the survey. We have created it in a way that it will briefly give context for each section and motivate your followers to complete the survey. It is produced in such a way that you can even listen to it in the background while filling in the survey. This video can e.g. be used in an email marketing campaign to engage your followers to take the survey. You can also use it on a landing page and use our engagement video to generate traffic towards it.
See your options for using this or creating your own tutorial video in our toolkit.
Above you can see two examples of our engagement videos. They are created in order to drive traffic towards the survey tutorial video from your social media channel. While the tutorial video is 10 minutes long, the engagement video is produced to be very brief and will be max 1 minute.
They are constructed in blocks, which will allow you to design the video with the topics most suitable for your organisation.
See your options for getting your own versions of these videos in our toolkit. Anima International will be able to create such videos in your language.
Yes it is. While this survey is primarily focused on welfare regulations within the EU, there’s a crucial section about imported products.
This section allows you to answer that you believe imported animal products should live up to the same requirements as those that apply to EU production. As a result of the campaign “End the cage-age” the EU has already announced that it will be moving forward with a ban on cages.
If the EU decides to restrict imports of e.g. cage-eggs this can have significant impact on the work to change this production to cage-free in non-EU member countries that currently export to the EU.
For animal advocacy groups:
Thank you for everything you’re doing for the animals.
