What We Do

The University of Warwick's Animal Ethics Society aims to provide an active community for students interested in issues surrounding animal rights. We are here to raise awareness on campus and to encourage debate and discussion. We support demonstrations and get petitions signed to instigate change, in addition to holding our own debates and campaigns.

The society is inclusive and is open to everyone, though we are interested in promoting veganism as a healthy, sustainable and ethical lifestyle choice. The Animal Ethics Society embraces everyone who is interested in animal ethics.

For those who want to take a more active role, we also have a campaigns group. This group is responsible for organising events, talks and campaigns throughout the year. Last year we organised a 'Compassion in World Farming' week which involved leafleting, film screenings, talks and more!

If you join the society, we will send you a weekly email letting you know about all of our upcoming events!

More information forthcoming.

Previous Events

In the past year we have had numerous external speakers including Dr Matthew Cole (Open University) and Catia Faria (Animal Ethics). The year before we held a conference entitled 'The Politics of Species'. The eminent Carol J Adams gave a talk on ‘The Sexual Politics of Meat’, whilst Kim Stallwood, Dr Richard Twine, Elinor Lloyd and Dr Tom Tyler covered a host of other issues related to the field of animal ethics.

Other speakers in previous years include Dr Andrew Knight (Oxford Centre for Animal Ethics), who gave an illuminating talk on the ethical and practical considerations of using animals in veterinary teaching. Last year, we had a 'Compassion in World Farming' campaign, and the year before we had a 'Go Veggie' campaign.

We also organised a debate in 2013 in collaboration with Warwick Debating Union on the subject "This house would ban animal testing" which proved to be a resounding success, with an exceptional panel of experts debating in front of a large, receptive audience. We campaigned successfully to get the campus supermarket to stop selling non-free range eggs, having gathered the support of the student body. 

In addition to our campaigning and support activities, we organise regular potlucks, when members of the society and other like-minded students can get to know each other in a friendly and relaxed way, over delicious vegan and vegetarian food.
