Be motivated by our Keynote Speaker Philip Wollen OAM Australian of The Year Victoria 2007
Philip Wollen is a philanthropist who speaks to audiences around the world and sees animal rights as inseparable from human rights. The mission statement of his Winsome Constance Kindness Trust is “to promote kindness towards all other living beings and enshrine it as a recognisable trait in the Australian character and culture”. The Trust supports 500 projects across 40 countries, all devoted to taking care of children, animals and the environment. This ex-Citibank Vice President says his life’s philosophy is based on ‘ahimsa’ (a Sanskrit word meaning ‘not to injure’, be they humans or animals).
Be motivated by our Guest Speaker Brad King from Farm Animal Rescue
Farm Animal Rescue not only takes in and cares for a plethora of neglected and “used up” factory farm animals but also campaigns against the treatment of farm animals at sale yards. Brad believes that this is an important campaign as it goes to the heart of how government and industry work together to ensure that standards for farm animal welfare in Australia remain poor.
