The Future for Working Equines

The Donkey Sanctuary and the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Addis Ababa University, the host organisations, are proud to invite participants from all over the world to attend the Fifth International Colloquium on working equines, to be held in Ethiopia.

Theme: Sustainable methods of extension and education, welfare issues, animal legislation and environmental considerations.
Format: Three plenary sessions, workshops, demonstrations, field visits and poster sessions.
Host Country: Elected as the site for the next colloquium, Ethiopia is a land of stunning natural beauty with a rich diversity of culture and geography that will captivate the visitor. The welcome that comes from the mosaic of a people with over 80 different languages and as many cultures is warm and spontaneous. Whether in the town or the countryside most of the estimated 7 million equines (horses, mules, and donkeys) have a central place in Ethiopian life being used to transport produce and other agricultural goods.
Venue: To be confirmed
Registration fee: US $100
Language: The official language is English (there will be no translation)

The second announcement providing further details regarding the organisation of the colloquium and call for papers will be published in October 2004. Scholarships / Sponsored places will be available.
