Event description
Introduce “futures thinking” to people working in the sphere of anthrozoology, defining the future of human animal relationships.

About this event

Organizer: Maureen A. MacNamara (macnamarama@appstate.edu)

We are living in an increasingly complex world and the pandemic has cast a powerful light on the inextricable link between people and animals in ways both negative and positive. Defining the future of human animal relationships in the 21st century will be critical for building animal-centric policies and projects that make space for animals.

The purpose of this workshop is to formally introduce “futures thinking” to people working in the sphere of anthrozoology and challenge us to think more systematically about the future for people and animals, as well as how systems and culture change will impact those relationships. In addition to explaining the basic concepts of futures thinking, this workshop will help attendees recognize how to strengthen their ability to “anticipate” and imagine in new ways to understand, map, and prioritize the factors affecting modern societies’ views and treatment of nonhuman animals.
