One donation, double the impact ✊
Our voice for the animals is more important than ever. Until the end of December, every donation to Sentience will be doubled. For you, this means: one donation, double the impact! Help us to maximize our impact for the interests of non-human animals in the future.
The results of the federal elections represent a massive step backwards for the political representation of animals. Setting the political course will be even more difficult in the future. We are therefore all the more pleased that we were once again able to successfully campaign for the interests of non-human animals on various fronts this year:
- Over 11,000 people signed our «RRRevolution!» petition, calling for a change of course in Swiss agriculture.
- Our Protein Lab brought together important stakeholders from politics and industry who jointly committed to a protein transition in Switzerland.
- Last month, we met with Coop and Lidl and presented them with our catalogue of demands «Animal welfare NOW!».
- Behind the scenes, we have been working on building a strong alliance for animals.
Next year, we celebrate our tenth anniversary. For this, we have planned a very special campaign. Under the title «Invisible Animals», we want to make visible the suffering of those animals that have no political lobby at all: Pigeons, rats, bees and fish. Because all animals deserve a life with dignity.
As an organisation financed solely by donations, we are dependent on your support so that we can continue to stand up for the interests of non-human animals with full commitment in the future. In December, all donations up to a total amount of CHF 40,000 will be doubled. For you, this means: one donation, double the impact!
Interspecies diplomacy: ever a possibility? Decoding
Despite the current Swiss political scene, the environmental emergency continues, and its impact on all beings is evermore pressing. And so, we must start now to think about what engaging diplomatically with non-human animals will look like.
A strong alliance for animals
In collaboration with organizations that supported the initiative to abolish factory farming last year, we devoted two days to exploring ways to enhance the well-being of animals in Swiss agriculture.
Sentience becomes the hundredth member of the Open Wing Alliance
Sentience is the first Swiss organization to join the alliance, which was founded in 2016. In doing so, our organization is committing to become an even stronger advocate for the interests of chickens at home and abroad in the future.
Key Learnings 2022
Both of our initiatives represented landmark achievements for Sentience. They shaped the public discourse in 2022 and contributed to the slow inculcation of animal ethics into mainstream society. Yet, there is room for improvement.
Annual Report 2022
The past year was a huge milestone in the recent history of our association. With the Primate Initiative in Basel and the national referendum on factory farming, two proposals of historical importance came to the ballot box.
Introducing the Protein Lab 2023
We are pleased to introduce our first fully-funded project for 2023. Protein Lab comprises a series of one-day workshops where experts will come together to discuss how our food system can transition towards plant-based protein sources.
