Proudly brought to you by:
Asia Farm Animal Day (AFAD) is a celebration of the people and organizations across Asia who are working to protect the farmed animals of the region. Together we connect with like-minded advocates, learn from leading pioneers, increase the impact of our work, and create systemic change for farm animals in Asia.
Elodie Guillon, World Animal Protection
AFAD is growing in strength year after year. This year had a really impressive line of speakers covering a wide range of issues and skills needed to grow the farm animal welfare advocacy movement in Asia. Well done to AFA for leading the organizing committee.
Marianne Macdonald, Animals Aotearoa
It's great to see so many committed, caring people working to improve welfare for farmed animals in Asia and this is a great format to share information and support each other.
Yuki Takahashi, Animal Rights Center Japan
Thank you for strengthening the network among activists in Asia. Sometimes we need information about neighboring countries or trade partners, and it's useful to have personal contacts in those countries for fast, accurate information, especially across language barriers.
Christine Xu, Aquatic Life Institute
I would highly recommend AFAD to anyone interested in animal welfare in Asia. It has been an incredible honor to contribute to such an important and impactful event.
Chokdee Smithkittipol, World Animal Protection
AFAD event helps me see the light of opportunity for organizations in Asia to improve the food system to become more sustainable and humane. We need to work harder at regional level and gain more power to change the game.”
Thank you to our generous sponsors!
What Is Asia Farm Animal Day?
Asia Farm Animal Day (AFAD) is a celebration of the people and organizations across Asia who are working to protect the farmed animals of the region, and to encourage Asian people to choose a kinder diet and lifestyle.
In 2023, AFAD will be marked for the first time by an impactful in-person conference in beautiful Kuala Lumpur from October, 8-10th.
The conference is co-organized by both the Asia for Animals Farm Animal Coalition and the Animal & Vegan Advocacy (AVA) Summit. Both have already delivered world-class events which bring together the most influential speakers in the vegan & animal protection space, which is why AFAD 2023 is certain to be an engaging and inspiring event for animal advocacy professionals from all over Asia and beyond.
Who Should Join Asia Farm Animal Day?
We welcome people who come to their journey with any motivation, including but not limited to: animal rights, environmental, social justice, effective altruism, personal health, and other intersecting movements. We support a wide range of strategies and tactics for advancing our vision, from grassroots activism to highly specialized engagement, individual outreach to food systems change, legislative change, corporate engagement, and advancing animal-free technologies.
Our audience consists of dedicated individuals working or looking to work in the animal and vegan advocacy movement as high-impact volunteers, employees, or movement professionals.
We are on a mission to continue creating the space for global advocates to come together and learn in a highly modern, diverse, progressive, and impactful conference series for the animal and vegan advocacy movement worldwide.
Why Farmed Animals? Why Asia?
The majority of farmed animals and fish on planet Earth are raised in Asia. Every single one of these countless billions of animals is a living, sentient individual with needs, but the vast majority of them do not have these needs met, and suffer because of it.
Every 10th of October, we unite the people & NGOs of Asia to celebrate Asia Farm Animal Day to make visible the importance and urgency of this issue.
Because of the interlinkages with other global issues that affect people & planet, the way we currently treat farmed animals simply cannot go on.
