3rd International Equine Welfare Congress

Workshops Sunday May 31

 

"Proposals for the future": Redefining horses and humans

Once the participants have expanded their knowledge on various topics of the congress through video-presentations, abstracts and round tables, we give you the opportunity to deepen the knowledge on the topic that is most appropriate to your area of ​​interest.

 

Each workshop will have two additional 10-minute presentations that can be seen during the week. This will allow you, along with the other participants, and the Proyecto Caballo team, to join the video-conference, on Sunday May 31st, to apply this knowledge and generate proposals for the future. We want you to leave this space with solutions to current problems in your life with horses and apply them in a practical way in the future.

You can choose to attend the Spanish-speaking workshop or English-speaking workshop.

NB The debates and conclusions of the conference and workshops will be published on the page
Project Horse website to promote its dissemination.
