Kjersti was invited to speak on “Animal Welfare in Sustainability” at the annual conference. Addressing the fact that sustainability today is seen as a human activity to ensure our needs and business values, not to sustain life on the planet as such. Referring to Arne Næss` Deep ecology and philosophies that state that all life on earth has an inherent value. Hence there is no sustainability without good animal welfare. And no good animal welfare without human welfare. Everything is linked together and based upon love for all that is. Animal welfare is deeply connected to Human welfare, land management and predator strategies.
Kjersti is also on the advisory group for T.E.s work on Responisble Wool Standard (RWS)
