All are invited to attend the special “Animal Advocacy in the Era of Laudato Si”  one day conference, Saturday 23rd June 2018 in Theatre 1 at the University of East Anglia in Norwich.
The conference is jointly organised by UEA and Catholic Concern for Animals. Details below and also available on CCA’s website.


The conference features a number of distinguished speakers, including Richard Ryder and Gary Francione. Its title references the papal encyclical of 2015, which strongly criticised human disregard for the earth, climate and non-human animals, going so far as to name our era as one characterised by a “tyrannical anthropocentrism”. The full text of the encyclical may be read online or downloaded from


The Conference is free (including a vegan lunch), and to encourage attendance QCA are offering to its members a special travel subsidy to a maximum of £20 available by advance application to our Treasurer (please use our Contact form) and presentation of receipts.
