I am learning all the time. The tombstone will be my diploma. ~ Eartha Kitt
Critical thinking applied to food and lifestyles
Why is it okay to eat some animals and not others? Why do we eat or wear pigs, cows, sheep and chickens, yet protect dolphins and consider dogs pets?

Harvard psychology scholar and author, Melanie Joy, coined the term 'Carnism' to describe the hidden belief system behind the way animals are treated in our world. Animals Australia and Think Inc are proud to host Melanie on her Australian tour. Come along to hear her presentation at Sydney's UNSW Kensington Campus on Saturday, February 25 at 7.00pm.

The event is free but tickets are limited so please register your intention to attend.

Will be a great event! So many people believe that it's ok to treat animals badly or they simply see them as food. Interesting event which may change opinions!
